It is important to spend some time creating the introduction section of your Moodle course. This is the section at the top of your course and is a great place for a course syllabus, survey, or welcome video.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we took a look at how to set up…and title the different sections or units for our course.…You'll notice that above the first unit here,…which is titled Structure and Function,…I have an additional section.…Right now it doesn't have a title.…This will be the introduction section…or the section that your students see…when they first log into this page.…Let's take a look at how we can customize this.…First, over on the right hand side,…I'm going to click Edit and then Edit section.…And I first wanna give it a name.…
Now, in order to give it a name, rather than General,…I have to click on Custom up here.…And then I'm going to type in Welcome to Biology 101.…I think it's a good idea…to include the title of the course here,…along with an image…that students can familiarize themselves with,…as well as a description of the course.…Now, I'm going to go ahead and add the other two.…In here for the Summary section,…I'll paste in a description that I already have.…And I can use this rich text editor…
