- We'll be using two main demonstration tools for this course. I've got them open here on two different tabs. The first one is this one right here. It's a mock site that I'll install and build to directly show you how to change settings, create course shells, manage users and do all kinds of other tasks. In the end, the design is gonna look something like this. For this course, I'll be demonstrating the mock site by building an online language school. There are times though, when I need to show you certain interfaces that require a fully populated Moodle platform, with copious amounts of courses and users.
For those times, I'll be using the Mount Orange demo site. This is a fully populated demo site that Moodle offers to the community, so users can experiment with settings. You can go nuts with customizing it because it resets itself every hour, on the hour. The cool thing about the demo site is you can access it from the point of view of a manager, which is similar to an administrator, a teacher, a student, a parent, or any other user. You just click on Choose a role and then choose the role you want and then just log in by clicking on this link.
The password is always Moodle. Now that we're familiar with all the tools we'll be using, let's get going.
