- Exercise Files
- Throughout this course, I'll refer to various files, which I'll call exercise files. Exercise files are only available for premium members. For this course, those files will be sample files for you to practice specific activities after you learn them. Let's take a look at some examples. I'll open the Exercise Files folder on my desktop. You can see here a variety of file types, such as, a Moodle course backup, so when I show you how to restore a backup, you'll have a practice file.
I'll refer to things like copying things from my syllabus. If you don't have a syllabus handy, feel free to use mine. I have a comma-separated values file, NewCourse Grades, so you can practice uploading columns into the gradebook. There's a QuizQuestions file to import those, and many different student papers with rubrics and feedback. Some instructions for a wiki, you can see there are many options for you to explore. Feel free to make up your own, or use the actual documents from your course.
