Getting Started with Moodle
In this introductory workshop, you will learn 10 steps to get you started using Moodle. Bring your course syllabus (e-copy and hard-copy) and start organizing your actual Moodle course. We will even create your first course assignment! (1.5 hours includes lab time).
Moodle Advanced: Gradebook
Receive a quick overview of Moodle's advanced gradebook features. Learn how to add columns, calculate average scores, create a grading scale and assign letter grades. After the demonstration, participants will be able to work on their own gradebook with instructional technologists at hand to provide assistance.
Moodle Advanced: Group Projects
This workshop is for advanced users. This workshop will cover the benefits of assigning group projects and strategies on how to create and manage groups online. Participants will learn three methods of creating groups by: (1) Manually creating topics and students self-select the topic they wish to work on, (2) Manually creating groups and instructor assigns specific students to a group, and (3) Automatically creating groups randomly. This workshop will also have participants create asynchronous discussion forums and synchronous chats to create spaces for sharing ideas and organizing content.
Participants will learn how to set up a Turnitin assignment, download papers, view originality reports, grade, and provide feedback on student work through GradeMark. While Turnitin is no substitute for a well-written assignment, this tool can encourage self-reflective practice among students.
