    So, if you break it you can fix it or ask someone else for help and explain what you did and what you think the problem might be
  • 7. The steps
    Install
    Create Course categories
    Create Course subcategories
    Create Courses
    create groups (classes) within courses
    assigning roles
    Upload Users
    Users create learning content
  • 8. Installation of Moodle
    Before you do anything create an account at Moodle.org and read the support section FIRST
    Download latest stable release, see http://moodle.org
    Follow the download instructions
    Install it, best to do this with your network technician close by
    If you are a really worried try downloading a standalone USB installation and familiarise yourself with this firsthttp://www.chsoftware.net/en/mowes/mowesportable/mowes.htm
  • 9. Create Course Categories
    It is a good idea to use terms that everyone is familiar with and which match your student handbooks .
    By subject area By year level groupings
    Science Senior School
    Chemistry Science Physics Humanities Biology Middle School
    Science
    Humanities
  • 10. Creating Courses
    1. Need list of subjects, who teaches them and when, usually the master time table.
     
    2. Names of teachers and the codes used for them when they are on student time tables.
     
    3. You need to know the class and teacher codes that appear on student time tables
    Enforce a naming standard, very important for reducing the time taken to enroll large numbers of studentsref: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Upload_users
  • 11. Creating Groups (Classes) within courses
    Each course (Year 12 Chemistry) has one or more classes
    Each class has a teacher and students
    In Moodle think of the classes as groups within a course
    Give each group an enrolment key, use the subject and line number that students have on their time table as the enrolment code.
    "What’s the enrolment code Miss?"
    “Check your time table, what class are you in now... well that’s the enrolment code“
    Confused? Ref: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Groups_FAQ
  • 12. Enrolment Codes
    Use the subject and line number that students have on their time table as the enrolment code.
    "What’s the enrolment code Miss?"
    “Check your time table, what class are you in now... well that’s the enrolment code"
  • 13. Assigning Roles
    Who can do what, where
    Ref: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Assign_roles
  • 14. Assigning Roles
    Who can do what, where
    Ref: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Assign_roles
    Guest role (look don’t touch)
    Authenticated user (default role)
    Student role (self explanatory)
    Non-editing teacher role (can’t change content)
    Teacher role
    Course creator role
    Administrator role
  • 15. Creating Accounts
    Create teacher accounts manually
    Use LDAP or similar technology to link students accounts, you need to achieve one user name & password for network and Moodle access
  • 16. Uploading Learning Content
     Keep you upload limits small, I set it around 8 Meg
    But why, space is inexpensive?
    Otherwise your Moodle will blow out and you will encourage bad content creation and management practices
    If you can link to external content “YouTube” or podcast do it.
    But what happens if something changes and the link dies?
    Keep your teaching and content fresh, check your links
  • 17. Getting teachers to use your LMS
    Did I Mention…
    Training, Training, Training
    Let’em at it
    Find the keen teachers and let'em rip
    1 to 1 support
    Find the stumblers and give one to one support
  • 18. Getting teachers to use your LMS
    Show Case Success
    Get the keen to present what they have done
    Nurture enthusiasm
    Look after your stumblersone by one, not all at once this could burn you out.
  • 19. Getting teachers to use your LMS
    Once the stumblers have learnt to go forward move their enquires to the keen.
    Promote, Promote... "Should see (stumblers) Moodle their getting right into it!"
  • 20. What to expect in the first year...
    Upload /Download approach 
     Mainly working as a content repository
     it will not look pretty during the first year
    support your keen users (one on one help!)
