Moodle day 1

  1. 1. Moodle<br />Developing a Blueprint<br />
  2. 2. Why Moodle?What is Moodle?<br />Modular<br />Object-<br />Oriented<br />Dynamic<br />Learning<br />Environment<br />Moodle allows teachers and students to use online assignments, discussion forums, quizzes, surveys, wikis, blogs, workshops, and file repositories together in a shared learning environment.<br />There are hundreds of ways to set up a “class website”, but this gives CCS a consistent and secure setting-- with lots of features under one roof.<br />
  3. 3. Today’s Goals <br />Have everyone logged into Moodle and join the BLAST Summer Academy Moodle Course<br />Log into an existing course you will use with students in 2011-2012, or Request a Course.<br />Begin to organize one of your 2011-2012 student courses by setting up your topic blocks to your SOLs and Units.<br />Bring files for your 2011-2012 courses for Day 2 and 3.<br />
  4. 4. Logging in to Moodle<br />http://Moodle.ccs.k12.va.us<br />Login with your Novell login/password<br />Your Courses:<br />Search Courses for “blast”<br />Choose BLAST Summer Academy (3rd choice on the list)<br />The BLAST Summer Academy Course<br />Enrollment code is “blast”<br />If you don’t already have a Moodle course, go back to the Home screen and “Request a Course”<br />
  5. 5. What’s New in Moodle 2.0?<br />New Themes/Fonts<br />Teachers can set their own Themes for their Courses (under Administration->Settings)<br />Resources/Activities and Topic Blocks are now drag-and-drop<br />Can import files from GoogleDocs and Dropbox<br />You can move blocks around, and can “dock” them on the side for easier navigation<br />
  6. 6. The BLAST Summer Academy Course <br />All of the “handouts” and training materials for this week’s sessions will be on this course, including the schedules for each day.<br />All participants are in the BLAST Summer Academy course as a “student”.<br />This will let you see some of Moodle from a students perspective.<br />You won’t be able to edit activities in this course, but you will in your 2011-2012 student courses.<br />
  7. 7. Setting up your 2011-2012 student courses<br />Logging in to your course<br />Settings<br /># of Topics<br />Format of course: topics, collapsed topics, etc.<br />Choose a Theme<br />Setting up your Topics<br />By Unit/SOL<br />
