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.
If you're a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you're watching this tutorial on a disk, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Go ahead and copy the exercise files directly onto your desktop for easy access throughout the training. Then whenever we need to use the exercise files, simply go into the appropriate chapter folder and find the file that's called out throughout the training. These are the files that you'll be uploading into your Moodle course so that you don't have to type out all the material that I'm typing out on screen or create your own images, audio or video files.
If you are a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, then you don't have access to these exercise files, but you can follow along by simply creating your own asset files and using those instead. Let's get started.
