Just enough site administration to get you going

The final step in getting our Moodle learning management system up and running is to actually just test and make sure that everything we set up is set up correctly and is functioning properly. The fact that we have already been able to go and create our users and our courses, means that our Apache, MySQL, and PHP web servers are all functioning properly. The next step is to go ahead and just test and make sure that our user accounts are functioning properly. Go up to the upper right-hand corner of your screen and you should see that you are currently logged in as Admin. Click the link for Logout and you are taken back to the main login screen. Go down to the Login box on the right and change the Username from Admin to your username that you just created for yourself.

In my case, I'm now typing Chris and I'm now typing my password and remember, we set the password for everything to 12345. Click the Login button and you should see that you are logged in and that your course, under My Courses, shows the Coral Reef Ecology course. You would also see listed that you are the teacher. On the right-hand side, you can see other online users and you can see that within the last five minutes, you've logged in. Go ahead and log out again, let's go ahead and log in this time as a different user. This time we'll log in as Al.

Type in the username of al and the password of 12345. Click the Login button and you can see that the user, Al Uminium, has actually logged in and they are also inside of their course. So everything looks great. We'll click Logout one more time, we'll log in as ourself again, password of 12345. Click the Login button, now we are all set to proceed with building our first course.
