I am a Teacher in Electrical Engineering here in the UK and would like to use Moodle to assist me in my teaching/learning programmes. I am very new to Moodle and would value expert advice and assistance in setting up the most appropriate Moodle structure for my course. Please refer to attachment. Unfortunately, the College Moodle Administrator, is like me, very new to moodle and unable to help. Please can you oblige!!
The course I am trying to structure in Moodle has two levels: Level 2 and Level 3. Each level in turn consists of units: Unit 1 and Unit 2 and each unit in turn contains topics to be taught. Students study Level 2 and the respective units in their first year and Level 3 and the respective units in their second year. Students in any particular year will study both units in parallel.
I don't envisage any serious problems populating the course units which will have a weekly format based on a 36 week scheme of learning ('topics' to be taught). My problem is with the fundamental structure which I would like to get right before I expend time in populating the units with acitivities, resources etc. I would be most grateful, therefore, to receive any:
- advice on the most approriate way of setting up the structure in Moodle?
- details of how to set up the structure? or
- references to the sections/links ...that will enable me to set up the structure?
Many thanks Rick
p.s. I will be using Moodle version 1.8
