About This Class

This class is called Editing Moodle courses, and will include lessons on various aspects of editing courses. This will include how to edit the Moodle page and what all the Moodle icons mean. 

The next part of the section will focus on Moodle editing icons, and their uses.  Learners will be shown how to turn editing on, how to delete, move, indent, hide and edit activities and resources. 

Topics and labels can be used to transform a Moodle course. I will explain both the use of topics and labels including how topic titles and descriptions can be edited.  

I will also spend time on the use of the activity chooser and how to find out more information about activities and resources. 

I often tell learners that if they can master the Atto text editor, then they master Moodle!

I will explain what the Atto text does and show users how to alter text fonts, colours and sizes. These functions will be examined in closer detail throughout the rest of the course. 

At the end of the section, I will also show learners examples of indenting content, as well as hiding content, how to drag and drop files and some different effects learners can create using the Atto text editor.

Please don’t forget to contact me with any questions or queries that you may have about the course so far. I really want learners to succeed and for this course to be the best it can be!

I have worked in eLearning for over 8 years, and in IT and computing for over 15 years.

I began my career at the Workers Education Association, the largest provider of Adult education in the UK, as a support analyst before moving up to a Senior Support Analyst, involved in building networks and providing helpdesk support.  I then moved on to work as a Learning Technologies officer for Coventry University London Campus, and then a Virtual Learning Environment Manager during my 4 years at the Royal Veterinary College.

Presently, I am the Electronic Resources Manager at the Institute of Dentistry at Queen Mary University in London, England.

I have managed multiple eLearning projects throughout my wide and varied career, including a college wide migration from Blackboard to Moodle, creating new undergraduate online courses, managing Virtual Learning Environments, Creating e-learning content, Moodle training, learning design including MOOCs and SPOCs and pedagogical design of online courses.

I frequently identifies and assesses relevant learning technologies to extend and support teaching and learning, and plan and manage the integration of such technologies into the curriculum and into teaching practice. 

In my spare time, I enjoy watching Football - I am a Chelsea fan, entering online competitions, playing with my cat Daisy (she makes a guest appearance in my courses!) and going out to the pub with my friends.
