Moodle is an online tool that allows educators to interact with students outside the classroom and manage a course from anywhere. In Moodle Essential Training for Teachers, Chris Mattia shows how this program works for teachers on three levels: disseminating information, creating a forum where ideas are exchanged, and assessing the progress of students. Chris shows how to build course materials with Moodle's HTML editor, post assignments, and save time by using Moodle's grade book to evaluate tests automatically and organize scores. Exercise files accompany the course.
When we set up our glossary, we wanted to allow students to be able to comment on the entries. And that is available to them inside of every entry. However, if we want to allow them to edit the terms and the Definitions inside of the Glossary, we need to do a little bit more set up though in order to make that happen. To do this, simply enter into the Glossary and go up to the upper right hand corner and click the Update this Glossary button. You are taken back to the Settings page for the Glossary. But there is another tab up here at the top that says Locally assigned roles. Go ahead and click on Locally assigned roles and now we can go in and adjust the permissions that are set up on the Glossary on a student by student basis.
To do this, simply click on the Non- editing teacher and we'll go ahead and we'll promote each of the different students from the role of student to Non-editing teacher. To do this, click on the first student in the list, hold down the Shift key on your keyboard and click on the last student. This will select all the students in the list. Then simply click the Add button. The students will be promoted to Non-editing teacher for the Glossary. This will allow them to go in and create and edit Glossary entries. Many times this function is not allowed to a normal student role. So by changing the role inside of the Glossary for each student, this will provide them with the access that they need.
We can now simply return back out to the Glossary. And now when a student comes in to the Glossary and they see an entry, they too will have the ability to Add comments, Delete, and Edit an entry. A great use for this tool is for you to go in as the instructor and set up a bunch of terms that the students need to define. Then assign the terms to each student, have them open up the Glossary and edit the Definition of those items. And make them available to the entire class.
In the next movie, we'll show you how to create a secondary database to take this whole process a whole another step further.
