Introduction

Tips for Assisting Students with Moodle

  • If they are having trouble opening your files, find out if the format that you posted can be read on their computer.   PDF files are the most common format type.   
  • Find out what kind of device they are using.   A computer is required to access documents and students will have more success using a computer than with using a mobile device.   A cell phone may not be able to open the file types that are posted in your course and cell phones have very little memory, so even if their phone supports PDF viewing, they might not be able to open an entire article or book chapter on their phone.   A computer or device with more memory is required for their success in using your Moodle course.
  • Instructions for your students to create their Moodle account are in this document.   You will need to provide the students with the enrollment key in order for them to get into your course.  (Note: Moodle is open source software that was created in Australia and they use a different spelling for the word enrollment.)
