Welcome to the upgraded Moodle version 3.10!

Don’t worry, Moodle works the same as before but now with some additional features for building your course!

  • You will notice that the Turn editing on button is now big and visible in the upper-right corner of your course!

  • The Activity chooser (what you see when you click the "Add an activity or resource" link) has been revamped to be much more friendly. You can now see what activities or resources we recommend you start with and you can “star” the ones you like for easy access!

  • Adding grades directly to the gradebook is easier than ever. Simply click on a field from the grader report and add your grade in the solid box and/or your feedback in the dotted-lined box.
    Two fields for entering grades and feedback

  • You can now download content from your course to take with you offline. Read more about this here.

  • We are also excited to introduce H5P, a content tool for easily creating interactive games, quizzes, images, presentations, and more! There are many H5P content types and we will soon post our recommendations. Read more about H5P here.

As always, if you need help please contact the Help Desk and our team will respond.

Students: Lost your course?

by Bobby Deetz -

If your current course seems to disappear, it has most likely changed status from "In-progress" to "past." You will be able to find all of your courses by going to your avatar in the upper-right and using the drop-down to get to your profile. Another way is to use the filter on the Dashboard to view your past, in-progress, or future courses. If you still cannot find your course, it could be that it has been hidden by your instructor. They will need to unhide it in order for you to access it.

Faculty: Check your end dates!

by Bobby Deetz -

Is there an end date for your course and is it correct? This will move your course from the “In-Progress” status to “Past” making it easy to keep courses organized on people’s dashboards. However, if your course ends too soon your students may not be able to find it! To check/edit this date, navigate to Edit Settings and find the “Course end date” setting. Make any necessary changes (be sure to check the time of day too) and scroll down to click save.
