Teachers, learn how to create engaging courses with Moodle 2.4 and get your students excited about online learning. In this course, Moodle expert Mary Cooch shows you all the steps to creating classes for K–12 and college settings. Learn how to set up Moodle so it's just right for your classroom, add course materials (including videos, widgets, and web links), get your students enrolled, and start fostering collaborative learning with blogs and chats. Plus, learn to build quizzes, grade assignments, and get student feedback. Mary also shows you how to back up a copy of your course to use again the next year, or share with others.
One essential element of getting your course up and running, is how your students will be able to access it or enroll in it. Your institution might enroll them automatically, so you don't have to, or you might allow them to enroll themselves, which we'll look at in another video, or you might want to add them to your course manually. So, let's look now at how to just do that. So, we're in the course, and if we scroll down to the settings block, which here is on the left, we have a link users. When we click to expand it, we have the option enrolled users.
Clicking on enrolled users brings us up a screen, which shows us everyone who is currently enrolled in the course. And at the moment, it's just our teacher, obviously. So, from here, we can click a button, top-right, to enroll other users. And, then we see that at the top we've got the option assign roles and before we start enrolling users, we need to decide the role we want to give them. For a teacher most times, this would just be student. And It's worth knowing that teachers by default can't assign other teachers in their course.
So, if you want a colleague to co-teach with you, you need to ask your administrator. So, it's set to student by default, so I'm going to choose George Adams, our student, by clicking the enroll button and then when I'm done enrollling, I simply click finish enrolling users at the bottom. The next time our students log in, they will see our course in their list, and they'll be able to get straight in and start work. So, in this video, we've learned how to manually enroll our students ourselves. Although this is more work for us, it's worth doing, because it saves the students having to find our course.
And enroll themselves. And if your students are young or don't have particularly good IT skills, then you might wish to use this method.
