What do learners do on Moodle?
Learners use Moodle to connect with their teachers and peers from virtually anywhere there is internet access. Learners can watch video lessons, participate in online discussions, submit assignments, and complete assessments.
Moodle Quick Starts
The Forum activity allows students and teachers to exchange ideas by posting comments as part of a 'thread'. Files such as images and media maybe included in forum posts. The teacher can choose to grade and/or rate forum posts and it is also possible to give students permission to rate each others' posts.
The Assignment activity allows students to submit work to their teacher for grading. Types of assignments include online text, file submissions, and audio & video creation.
The Lesson activity allows teachers to create 'branching' exercises where students are presented with content and then, depending on their responses, are directed to specific pages. The content may be text or multimedia.
The Quiz activity allows teachers to have students complete and score quizzes online. Questions types include multiple choice, true/false, short answer, essay, and matching.
The Book resource contains multi-page resources with a book-like format and includes a clickable Table of Contents.
A Page resource creates a link to a screen that displays the content created by the teacher. The Text editor allows the page to display many different kinds of content such as plain text, images, audio, video, embedded code or a combination of all these.
The folder is a resource that enables a teacher to display a number of related files inside a single folder, reducing scrolling on the course page.
The Feedback activity allows teachers to create and conduct surveys to collect feedback
For any technical issues, please follow this procedure.
Go to the Remote Learning Support Form.
Fill out the form with as many specific details as you can.
Once you click "Submit", it can take up to 24 hours to get a response, perhaps more if there are a large number of requests for support. If this wait will impact your student's participation in school, an email to the student's teacher is appreciated.
