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.
In the last movie we created a new course called Import101 and we imported all the material from BIOL432 course that we have been working with. We now want to show you how to go in and reset the data inside of a course. So say you are teaching the same course next semester but you want to get rid of all of the students and all the student data that's associated with this course. If we click on the link for Participants inside of this course, we can see all the students that we have added in the previous movie. Let's go ahead and return back to our course by clicking on the Import101 link in the upper left. Now, we'll reset this course and remove all of the students from this course. To do this, simply click the Reset button inside of your Administration block. We then have the option to say what materials we want to get rid of, out of the current course.
We can change the start date for the course if we want. By default it's set to Disable. We can check whether or not we want to delete the various different events, logs and any special notes that have been added. In this case, we'll go ahead and delete the logs, and we'll delete all of the events. We will also set the new course date by unchecking the Disable button and we'll set the new course date for the 1 September, 2009. We then want to get rid of all of the students that are currently enrolled in the course. So we'll select the option for Students. We can then scroll down and choose what information we want to get rid of out of our Grade Book.
We don't want to get rid of all of the items or categories in our Grade Book but we do want to get rid of all of the grades that are associated with the Grade Book. So we'll check the box for Delete all grades and then scroll down and choose whether or not we want to have any of the assignments to stay. We will check the box for Delete all submissions. We'll check the box for Remove all messages from chats, we'll get rid of all of the choices that have been made by our students, this is the survey that we created for our students to determine what their food preferences are, then we can choose whether or not we want to get rid of the database entries.
We will go ahead and check the box for all database entries. We'll check the box for delete all form posts but we'll go ahead and leave all the entries to all the glossaries and we'll get rid of any entries made by students. This way, any glossary entries that we made as the instructor will remain but any of the entries that the students made will be deleted. We'll delete all the ratings and all comments that have been added to all the glossaries. We can then click the button at the bottom that says Reset course. If we scroll to the bottom of the screen, we click the button for Continue and now all of the user data has been removed. To check this, let's go ahead and go back into the Participants listing under People and we can see that the only participant in this course is ourself. All of the students have been removed, all their data has been removed and we are ready to begin the new semester by adding new students to our course.
Let's go ahead and return back to our main BIOL432 course, by going up to the upper left corner and clicking on the link for lyndaU and then clicking on the link for Coral Reef Ecology. Now we are back inside of our course with all of our users and all of our data.
