Preparing your spring course in Moodle

Winter term has flown by and spring semester will be starting on February 4th. Now’s the time to prepare your spring semester Moodle courses! Below you will find some useful tips and links to allow this process to be as smooth as possible. 

Setup your course

All spring semester course shells have been created. If you’ve taught here for some time, you may have a long list of courses. To find your spring semester course, click on “My courses” in the Navigation Block. Your spring courses will end with the semester code “1403”.

If you wish to transfer content from an old course into a new course for the spring, please follow these simple steps for copying course content.

Are you teaching more than one section of the same course? You can now link your courses together in Moodle. These directions on the Technology Wiki walk you through the process.

Check your roster

We push update enrollment in Moodle to make sure that all rosters are up to date with the official roster in OnTrack. However, when a student drops, it is your responsibility to remove that student in Moodle. Follow these simple steps to remove a student from your Moodle course.

Make your course available to your students

When you are ready for students to see your course, you must make it available. This process has changed with our upgrade to Moodle 2.5. Please use these simple steps from the Technology Wiki to make your course available to students.

If you have any questions about preparing your spring course in Moodle, please feel free to contact the Technology Help Desk at 5200.
