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.
When we have graded activities such as assignments in our course, they're all in one default category of our grade book. This is okay, but we might want to put different activities into different categories. For example, we might want to put each of our three films into a category of it's own. This can also be useful if we want to total those categories, as well as a final course total. So in this video, we'll look at how to add categories in our grade book. And to do that, we're going to go to the settings block, and then click the link grades, which will take us to the grader report.
And then we choose from the drop down menu, or tabs if your grade book has tabs, categories and items, full view. And now you see that if we scroll down, we have a button at the bottom, add category. So let's click the add category button, and we're going to have a category name of one of our films. And then every assignment or quiz or graded activity that's related to that film only, we'll add to that category. Then, if we click save the changes, you see that we have an added category here with a category total.
It's now possible, by selecting an individual assignment, for example the Wizard of Oz presentation, to move it into that particular category. And I'm going to go and click the move icon to move it into the Wizard of Oz category. So I click the dotted line box underneath the name of the Wizard of Oz category to move it into there. And so now we have a named category with an individual assignment inside there. And so, in this video, we've learned that we can categorize activities to make the grade book more manageable and also to assist us in organizing a final grade based on category grades.
