How do I create a new course in Moodle?
If a teacher wants to make a new course:
Log in and on the left side of the landing page under the Site Administration block select Courses and click on ADD/EDIT courses. Be sure to select and click on the your building. From there, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Add a New Course. Begin editing course settings.
How do I use last year's Moodle curriculum items this year?
To use curriculum items from last year for the upcoming year: Go into the new course that was created and select IMPORT from the tasks listed under the Administration block, locate the items to be imported. Only the shell of the assignment, chats, etc. will be available (not last years students). You will have to decide what you want imported or you can select all. You will need to click Continue several times until the process is completed.
A course can be saved with some or all of its parts by using the course backup. Typically, the site administrator will set a schedule of automated course backups for the whole site. A teacher with editing privileges can create a backup or download an existing backup for safe keeping, or for use on another Moodle site.
How can I setup an online text assigment in MOODLE?
Scenario If a teacher would like for students to respond to questions for a book they are reading, but they do not want the students to see the posts from other students even after they have posted, what activity should they use? The idea is that students answer the questions independently and the next day the teacher opens the posts from each student for classroom discussion. The teacher may also want them to complete the questions as they read the book, so not everyone maybe working on the same questions at any given time. For example, there may be a total of 10 questions and she/he would like them to answer questions 1-4 tonight, 5-8 next week, and 9-10 during the following week.
