Join George Papazian for an in-depth discussion in this video The role of the administrator, part of Moodle Administration Essential Training.
- Before we embark upon our learning, I need to clarify one concept. This is a course for creating an administrative environment. We're looking at the administrative nature of Moodle, not necessarily how to perform basic functions in Moodle. That means that most configuration we'll do in Moodle relates to how you would set up general settings for teachers and students. For example, we'll have a chapter in working with courses, but we won't be creating course content, such as assignments and activities in this course. Instead we'll look at how to create course shells for teachers and students, and how to configure site-wide settings that teachers or students can potentially override later.
You may hear me use terms such as, "global settings," or, "local settings." Global settings usually refer to site-wide defaults. Typically, teachers and students don't have permission to modify global settings. The concept of setting global defaults will be a theme that will run throughout the course. You can think of it like this. As an administrator, your job is to lay the foundation of any learning environment. From there, it's up to the teachers and others to customize and personalize their environment.
