You can create a backup of any module area in Moodle once you are assigned as a lecturer to that module. This backup will create a copy of all the resources and activities in that module area. No student data will be contained in the backup for security purposes.
Lecturers can unenrol themselves from a module in Moodle without having to contact the Moodle helpdesk.
You may be teaching a combined group of students from different programmes with different CRNs but would like them all to see the same content in Moodle. Simply send us a list of the CRNs that you would like to link/combine.
Yes, modules can be split into sub-groups if you are sharing a module with other lecturers. Only the students assigned to this split module will see the content that you upload in your new area. A seperate area will be set up for your colleagues to upload their material to.
Conditional activities enable teachers to restrict the availability of any activity or even a course section according to certain conditions such as dates, grade obtained, or activity completion. A “Restrict access” setting appears in the settings of activities or resources and also when editing a course section.
You can copy / import a reading list from one module to another across academic years quite easily in Moodle.
If you have too many sections in your module you can hide them. All content in the section will be hidden from participants until such time as you choose to make them visible again.
It is possible to release the module notes relevant to each section in your module. As a lecturer you will have the designer rights for that particular module so you will have the authority to hide materials and reveal them as you choose.
Students will not be able to see the resources that you may have hidden in your module area. You can view your module as a student will see it by following these quick steps.
