What’s new on Moodle
Welcome to the new version of Long Road Moodle..
Some areas of the site are still under construction, so
please be patient if you have any difficulties accessing
subject pages, resources or activities. You can email us
on firstname.lastname@example.org during the college day and
we will try to help fix any problems
If you have any difficulties during out-of-college
hours, we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Some of the new features are outlined in this
Hiding & Docking
Blocks can be hidden, docked and undocked.
You can close up the blocks by clicking on the (-) symbol
in the top right corner – that hides a block to just the title.
To move a block to the dock (i.e. the tabs along the left
hand side of the page ), click the arrow in the top right
corner of the block header.
Click the arrow again to return the block to its original
place in the column.
Instead of a My Courses block on the front page, you now have
your own My home page. This page is customisable by you.
You'll find the link to this page in the Navigation menu.
The courses you're enrolled on will appear as a list on this
If you haven't yet enrolled on your Year 2 subject pages, click
on Subjects in the top menu bar above and look for the subject
under the appropriate qualification and year category.
Access Files from Home
You now have access to your U drive from anywhere
through Moodle in Windows Share access.
My Private Files is another place you can save files. We
recommend that you store important documents such as
your CV, personal statement and coursework here.
Remember always to keep backups of important
documents stored in a separate place as well as on your
U drive and My Private Files.
You'll see a new section of Moodle in the top menu bar
called The Hub. This section includes Academic Support
courses, Enrichment and Employability Plus.
It will also have another important role in September. We'll
tell you more about that later.
