In this course, author Chris Mattia explores Moodle's rich learning environment and helps students successfully navigate a typical Moodle course. Serving as a reference guide, the course provides instruction on key Moodle functions, such as posting materials to student's blog, participating in live chats with other students, completing assignments online, accessing grades and instructor feedback, and more.
Now let's have a look at how to view documents within your course. In an earlier movie, we saw that we had a message coming in from our instructor, letting us know that the course syllabi have been posted and that we needed to take a look at it. We can find our course syllabi right here in the header block of our course. We can tell that it's a Word document, because there's an icon of a Word document on the left-hand side. I will go ahead and simply click on the link for Syllabus and my browser will attempt to download and open that document up in the default application. I will go ahead and select Microsoft Word for the application to open the document with and then click OK.
My syllabi then opens up for me to be able to look at. I can then read through the syllabus and learn about all the different things that I need to do for my course. I'll go ahead and close the syllabi and return back into my browser. So your instructor may post a lot of native documents to you, such as Word documents, PowerPoint documents, or PDF files. You also can have files that are visible just inside of your browser. In this case, I'll go ahead and click on the link for Coral Zooxanthellae Symbiosis.
This is an article that I need to read, so I can simply click on the article and read through it and find out a lot of information about the Coral Zooxanthellae Symbiosis. Then when I am finished, I can simply scroll back up to the top and click on the link for Biology432 in the breadcrumbs, and it returns me back to my course. Now in the last movie, I mentioned that there were some items that I need to make sure I took care of. By clicking on the syllabi and reading it and then clicking on the Coral Zooxanthellae Symbiosis article and reading that, I've now completed those assignments, and I can tell that I've done that by seeing the small checkbox over here in the right-hand side indicating that I've completed those specific items.
Now not everything in your course is going to be as simple as simply clicking on a document and opening it up to read it. You may have to go in and do some other steps to it, but this will at least give you an indication of all of the different documents that you need to go through and you need to read through and be familiar with. So opening document inside of your Moodle course is as easy as finding them on the main page and clicking on a document to open it up.
