In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
Now let's look into an assignment where the students have uploaded a file to us. Note that Grade, this assignment, let's go ahead and click on the Thesis Statement Assignment from our Gradebook. When the Thesis Statement page opens we're still in our quick grading mode, because we saved that preference in the last movie. Here we can see each student listed and we can see the Thesis Statement document that they uploaded. If we simply click on that document we're able to open that document in an appropriate application. This would allow us to go through, one by one, open the documents and read what the students have written, but that can be a bit tedious, because you'd have to go through each student's assignment and click on the document to download it and view it.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could just download all of these assignments at once? Well, in Moodle 2 you can. In the upper right-hand corner there is new link that says Download all assignments as a zip. You click on that link, you're prompted to download a file, we'll simply save the file and click the OK button. In the Downloads window, we can simply double-click on the name of the file and our finder window should then automatically open for us,, and then we should be able to go and navigate to that zip file and open it up, and here we can see all of the thesis statement documents from each of our students.
We could open up each document and I will be able read whatever it is that the student has submitted, all in one location. Now we know what grades we want to assign, we can go back in and use quick grading to go in and assign point values to each of our students. If we wanted to add any comments, we could add those here. Since we're using quick grading, we'll go ahead and scroll down at the bottom, and click the Save all my feedback button, and now we can return back to our Gradebook.
Now that we see that the grades have been updated, and inside of our Gradebook, our grades have been updated as well. In the next movie we'll look at grading an assignment directly inside of our Gradebook.
