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.
Now that we have created our database, added our data fields and modified our Template. The next step in building our database is to begin entering data into the database. To do this, make sure you are inside of your database and click on the tab for Add entry. A data entry form has been created for you automatically and all we need to do is fill out the data fields that are associated with the form. Let's go ahead and add the species that we have been working with thus far throughout the training. So the first one is Gymnothorax funebris. The Common_Name for this is the Green Moray Eel. We'll go ahead and click the Save and add another.
And we'll also add in the coral Acropora palmata. The Common_Name for this is the Elkhorn coral. We'll go ahead and click Save and view. Our data entries have been saved and after a few seconds, the last entry that we added will show up in the single view. If we click on the View list, we can see the list of all the organisms that we have added into our database. We can also see that the list is already in alphabetical order according to the scientific name or the Species_Name as we noted in an earlier exercise. Your database is now set up for students to begin entering data into your database.
And in the next movie, we'll go ahead and explore the uses of autolinking, how to make sure that that's setup inside of your server. And then how it works inside of the rest of your course.
