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