The Getting Started with Moodle workshop will give faculty who are new to Moodle (or who need a refresher) an introduction to Colgate’s learning management system. We will discuss how the use of Moodle in a course can enhance teaching and learning. The session will provide an overview of basic Moodle functionality so that faculty can set up their courses. Participants will also be introduced to additional features in Moodle, such as the creation, collection and assessment of assignments, activities such as quizzes and discussion boards and communication features. Participants will be encouraged to participate hands-on and apply the skills on their Moodle course(s) during the workshop. There will be time to ask questions.
At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Set up a Moodle course site and begin using Moodle to support their courses.
Add Moodle course content that aligns with the syllabus and learning goals
Add Resources and Activities
Use Moodle's communication features to effectively engage with students outside the classroom
