Everything looks straightforward and makes sense, and I really like a lot about Moodle.
The one thing that's causing me difficulty is this: in WebCT, I created the course and assignment pages in DreamWeaver, and synchronized them with the WebCT directory assigned to a course. Then, in WebCT, we simply told it which files to link to as the pages for a specific week or assignment. WebCT maintained all of the navigation and breadcrumb trail.
I set up a 10-week course in Moodle, uploaded the files to a directory in the moodledata dir, and then set about linking the pages into the different week's content. That worked fine and course summary page looks great. The problem is that when I click on a topic in the course summary page, the pages I linked to open "outside" of the moodle context. They are linked to, but not integrated into the course the way I expect them to be.
Can anyone help me understand how to pull those DreamWeaver pages into moodle so they act just like pages i would create directly in Moodle?
Thanks in advance,
I have to confess to cheating.
My course is set up on an 'open' site - so that I can edit pages on the fly.
I have planted a 'course home page' in Moodle that has links to pages in this site. It seems to work fine.
I could not understand the "Moodle flying weeks" - weeks that showed from today to seven days hence, rather than Monday to Friday, or even Sunday to Saturday. And the weeks kept "falling off the top". So instead I have a fixed agenda, shown in a table of weeks, into which i will edit events as needed.
I am not a fan of Dreamweaver! I like agile, efficient pages that can be downloaded quickly over dial-up. Netscape 7.2 contains Composer that is a simple, useful tool. SeaMonkey is very similar. If you like style sheets (and I do) then you can get good milage from NVU. All of these are free, and do not try to lock you in.
If you have Dreamweaver pages in the clutches of WebCT, you have my deepest sympathy!
