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 we've already seen in previous movies how to post an image using the HTML editor. Now in this movie let's go ahead and just post a link directly to an image from within a course block. If we scroll on down to the 2 February - 8 February. In this week we're going to be talking a lot about Coral Reef diversity. So it's a great place to start putting in some images, audio, video of other different organisms. So let's go ahead and click the drop down menu in that area for Add a resource and choose link to a file or web site. For the Name, let's go ahead and type in Image of Green Moray Eel. In the description we'll go ahead and just put Image of Green Moray Eel.
Now in the section 4, link to a file or web site, we'll simply click the Choose or upload a file, then we can come over here to our Images folder and we have all of those images that we just uploaded and we had compressed in the previous movies. So we can scroll one down in the list until we find the Gymnothorax funebris, which is a Green Moray, and you may think that you would just click on the link here. If we go ahead and do that, you can see that it shows us the image in areas right there. There is the Green Moray Eel. I'll go ahead and close that window.
So we know now that that is the correct image that we want. What we want to do post this image is come over here to the right-hand side and click the link for Choose. It's going to select the location and the name of the file. We can then come down and say whether or not we want this to open in the Same Window or in a different window. The Same Window was just fine. We'll scroll on down to the bottom and click Save and Display. This is going to show us the images of the green moray. We can return back to the course, BIOL432, scroll on down to the Week 2 and here's the link. It says Image of Green Moray. We can go ahead and click on that and there is the image.
So we've got a quick way to post an image directly inside of the course and have it show up for our students to be able to click on and go to. That's simply by just linking directly to the file.
