(cheerful music) - Hi, and welcome to Moodle Essential Training for Students. I'm Chris Mattia. In Moodle Essential Training for Students, I'll take you step by step through Moodle so you can be successful in your class. In this training we'll go over a variety of Moodle's features that can help you manage your academic life. I'll show you how to keep in contact with other students, write a personal blog, and even keep track of all your personal, course, and campus-wide events.

Next we'll go inside a sample course where I'll show you how to complete assignments, participate in discussion forums, and get up to the minute updates on your grades. How your teacher is choosing to use Moodle for your course is really gonna depend on the course materials, learning objectives, and their particular style of teaching. This video training series should be a good reference guide for you to learn how to use all the various tools inside of Moodle. Before we get started, you need to know that every institution implements Moodle slightly differently.

So what you see at your school's Moodle site is not going to match exactly what I'm showing. However, the features are the same no matter what your screen looks like. There's a lot to cover here, so let's get started.
