Best practices for your Course Documents folder

To help students locate the core course documents for courses using Moodle, the Main Menu area has a “Course Documents” folder which should contain the critical documents distributed the first day of class (syllabus, rubric, class schedule, etc.)

Documents distributed throughout the semester should be added to folders in the corresponding weekly or topic module.

This set-up has proven to minimize student anxiety since the Main Menu is always available.

Making your courses available to students

Remember to make the course available to students

Settings > Edit settings > 2/3 rd of way down select “This course is available to students”

Reminder: Faculty teaching fully online courses should the course open by 8:00 am the first day of classes with the syllabus, class schedule and textbook information posted for students.
