How do I request a new Moodle course page?

Please email Shawn Brandt (sbrandt@isd721.org) your request with the following information:

  • Course name (e.g., Algebra II, Introduction to Chemistry, etc.)
  • If you are requesting a course "cloned" from another colleague, please state the teacher's name and specific course.

How do I reset my course page for a new school year?

At the beginning of each school year, it is important to reset your course page. This will "unenroll" all of the students from last school. It will also remove all of their assignments and quiz attempts. Watch this video demonstration for step-by-step directions.

The title of my course has changed. How do I change it on Moodle?

Watch this video for a brief demonstration.

How do students enroll in my Moodle course?

Each Moodle course is setup with an enrollment key. The key places students into separate "groups" to help sort students by class period.

At the high school, a student in Semester 1, Period 1 would use: sem1-1

  • Semester 1, Period 2 = sem1-2
  • Semester 1, Period 3 = sem1-3

At the middle school, students are organized by their core periods: core1

  • Core 2 = core2
  • Core 3 = core3

If your group enrollment key does not seem to be working, you can view your group settings by following the steps on this TIP Sheet.

How do I import resources from one Moodle course into another?

Note: You must have "teacher" access to the course page in order to import resources. If you are collaborating with another teacher, contact Shawn Brandt to request access privileges to a specific course page.

  1. Go to your Moodle course page where you want to add content.
  2. On the left-side, under Administration, click the Import link
  3. Select the Moodle course to import existing content (resources) from… click the Continue button
  4. Backup settings… leave all options checked… click the Next button
  5. At the top of the page, next to Select: click the None link (this will removed all check marks)
  6. Click the Topic #/title that contains the resource you want to use… click the resource you want to import
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the page… click the Next button
  8. Scroll to the bottom of the page again… click the Perform import button

    Note: Only click the button once. It may take several minutes to import the resource(s) you selected.

  9. Click the Continue button

    Note: The imported resource will now appear in the same Topic # that it was originally located. You may need to move/organize it to a new location on your course page.
