Share files and other resources with your students by adding them to your Moodle course. Keep in mind that materials posted to Moodle courses must be used in accordance with the United States Copyright Act.
Click the following links for instructions on how to add these resources to your Moodle course:
The Book Resource in Moodle is a useful tool for creating your own online textbook complete with images, video links, and podcasts. Links to Google Forms can take students straight from the book to a short online check or quiz to gauge comprehension. The book can be written in chapters and subchapters.
Under Resources, click on Book
The first page is the Book cover. Enter a title and description, keeping in mind that like many Moodle tools, the description space will not be displayed unless you click the option to display.
Next click on Appearance and choose whether you want the chapter divisions to have numbers, bullets or indent. You may also choose None.
Save and display
Next begin populating the pages of your book. You can embed videos, images, text. A Table of Contents appears on the right side bar of the Moodle course page as the student progresses through the Book Resource.
You can add most types of files to your Moodle course. Office documents (Word, PowerPoint, Excel Spreadsheets, etc) will download as an editable copy of the file to the student's computer. PDF files are typically uneditable.
Add a URL
Use Labels to add text to a course section or to embed sound, image or video files that display directly on the course homepage.
Pages can also be used to add text, images, sound or movies that display in Moodle. However, a student must click the Page link on the Moodle course homepage to see the text or media file.
To add a Label or Page:
If you want to make student work submitted in a Moodle assignment available to other students in the Moodle course, take the following steps:
Click on the Assignment in Moodle, then click on View/grade all submissions.
In the Grading Action drop down menu, select Download all submissions
Moodle will create a ZIP file. Save the file to your desktop or Course file folder on your computer.
Next, create a folder in the Moodle course section where you want students to access the papers.
Drag the Zipped file into the space provided in the settings of the File Folder you have just created.
Click on the Zipped file. When prompted, click on Unzip file.
Moodle will then unpack the files in the Zipped file. The new files will be available for the students to see when they click on the Folder in the Moodle Course section. Where you see 01 Moodle in the example below, the students names will appear identifying the papers. (If you want blind submissions - removing identifying information from the file, before downloading the submissions into the Zipped file, change the setting to Blind Submission in Edit Assignment Settings.)
