Intro to Voodle - Part 1

Greetings all,

Thanks to H1N1 we need to get this site up and running as soon as possible. I might suggest that as you proceed you get the needed information and files uploaded for the next two to three weeks for all of your classes rather than focus on one class at a time. Then you will be more comfortable navigating Voodle and subsequent postings will go much quicker.

Here is the link to the tutorial that I emailed all of you:
http://docs.moodle.org/en/Course_settings

Much of the beginning of this tutorial involves the creating of courses and this has been done for you. The main things for you to consider in this tutorial are:

1.5 - General format (Weekly vs. Topic) Elementary may prefer the weekly format whereas Secondary teachers may prefer topic.
1.6 - Number of weeks/topics. Note that you can add/subtract the number of topics and show/hide topic so that students don't see everything all of the time
1.8 Hidden sections - This demonstrates how you can show/hide topics or weeks.

2.0 - Enrolments = I will create accounts for the students soon and we will then concern ourselves with enrolments.

More to come.
