Learn to install and set up a Moodle site—even if you have no experience with servers or databases.
- [Voiceover] Hello. I'm George Papazian, and welcome to Moodle Administration Essential Training. You may have used Moodle before as a teacher or student, but in this course, I'm gonna introduce you to its administrative side. We'll talk about what Moodle is, and why to use it. We'll also talk briefly about server environments. We'll look at where to find Moodle, download the latest version, install it, and how to make sense of the dashboard. Once we have that under our belt, we'll focus on some of the main day-to-day procedures you'll need to perform with Moodle as its administrator. Such as creating and managing users, setting user permissions, creating and managing course shelves, properly categorizing courses, and setting up global grading systems.
We'll then take Moodle to the next level in design and functionality, by customizing the look of the interface and extending Moodle's capabilities through the use of plug-ins. Finally, we'll end with a very important issue of how to make Moodle more secure without needing any extended knowledge of servers or programming. Let's dive in.
