MOODLE for Learners
Any input would be welcome as to the content and presentation.
We are also developing documentation for Instructors. The first of those videos should be available in a day or two from the same link.
Thanks for your input in advance.
I've gone to the page linked but I see no way of accessing the video. I click on 'click here' and I'm taken to a page that doesn't seem to contain any link to a video or Flash file.
Thanks for your efforts in putting the Flash movie together Paul.
It took me several attempts to access the video satisfactorily but it does the intended job very well.
As a teacher introducing the Moodle concept to colleagues your video is a useful resource and very much in the spirit of the open source community.
Here's a direct link to the video:
Please try that and let me know if it works. I think most folks are getting through ok...
This is the URL that I visited before. This is what I see:
However, I don't get any sort of popup with the Flash movie when I access the page and no matter what link I click, I still don't get to the movie. I've tried to disable my firewall as well, but that doesn't seem to be the problem.
Which one is the link that is supposed to lead to the movie?
Can I link to these videos from our moodle site?
They'd be most useful!
Please do. I am hoping to an an introduction to creating quizes this week. Are there any specific elements you think it would bemost useful to cover after that? I'm approaching it in a somewhat less than systematic way at this point....
This is the first lesson I need to make (just so you can see that it isn't complicated)
I need to create a lesson on composition in photography. So I need about 4 or 5 slides of information, and some simple animations (like two lines coming together to do rule of thirds, or a circle or arrow popping up to show a focal point or a light source). Then, I want to ask a question--say three images and have students select the image that shows the proper composition technique. Then more slides to introduce the second technique.
Can you chain lessons together? Anyway, that would be very helpful to ME! And if you have more pressing issues, I certainly understand. It was just wishful thinking! But some of the tutorials get into so many features that I get lost, since a) I am a complete novice and b) I don't know enough to skip the parts that don't really apply to my situation.
I've just posted a very basic introduction to creating quizzes in MOODLE. This 13 minute video documents the process of creating, adding questions and viewing the results of a simple quiz. By no means comprehensive, it is geared towards a new user of MOODLE.
You can find the video here:http://treadwell.cce.cornell.edu/moodle_doc/. I've also provided zipped versions of each of the videos, if you are having trouble viewing them online.
Just drop me a line and I'll give you an account to our VLE and we can go from there (this offer is open to all).
Thanks for the offer Paul. I'm just getting started with Moodle at my school and am looking for resources to assist my colleagues with initial training.

Once the holiday past I'll be updating the MOODLE Docs site to include links to others working on documentation and related issues.
I am doing a presentation this spring on moodle for technology teachers and was wondering if you would mind me providing the link to your videos?
Tnx in advance.
By all means, please take advantage of these in any way useful. I'm glad you find them useful.
I am new to moodle and would ;like to see the videos. Could you send me the link please.
Paul's videos are listed above, and mine can be download from
Hope it helps

One of our collaborators wanted to post some documentsin MOODLE and then have participants read, respond to and rate them. I intially thought Choice was the way to go, but...no commenting there. So a forum can be set to allow participants to rate posts. Simple enough, right? Select that option and hey!presto.
In theory and in actual practice it is easy, once you understand how. It took me some time to track down the right way to do this. I checked MOODLE help forums and it was never laid out straight and simple and sometimes I need that-especially if I'm jumping in to help someone.
So, I figured maybe there are others out there who need or want the
straight and simple. You can view the video of "Scales and Ratings in
MOODLE Forums" here:
As always, comments are welcome.
