Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Starting with a blank course shell, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- In the first chapter we looked at…how to navigate the Moodle environment,…use the text editor, and use the in-line help.…Now it's time to work on a new course.…First, we have to navigate to the blank course shell…where we can do our work.…On the Moodle homepage for your instituion…look for a block called MY COURSES.…In this default Moodle installation it's on the left,…but it may be different for you institution.…In the block are links to all the courses…in which you are enrolled as a teacher,…a student, or any other roll.…
The links will be blue if the course is available…to the students or participants.…The links will be gray if the course is unavailable.…I'll click the link called New Course.…This is your basic blank course shell.…Again, yours may look a little different…based on the template your Moodle administrator…has made for blank course shells at your institution.…In general, you'll see a few blocks on the left,…a few blocks on the right,…and some topic area sections in the center.…The only resource or activity you should see…
