|Sample Syllabus & Calendar||
I've embedded a Google calendar for my Project Management course in a page (see Oct.Dec. dates for events). I had to make the calendar public in order for students to view it without having to be logged into their Google accounts. I also added an infographic providing a visual representation of my syllabus.

|Leadership Communication Development Plan||
"Books" allow you to share a great deal of information in one link. Basically, they are a series of pages that you can provide text in and embed files or videos. This is an example of how you can use a book to share information about a term project.

|1.2 Forum Ideas||
This is an example of linking a dynamic Google doc to a web site to engage course participants. When I am using a shared doc synchronously in a training session, I add a table with rows like this to make it easier for people to know where to write. Otherwise, it's really chaotic!

Ideas for different kinds of forums to engage your students and how to balance involvement in forums.
|1.4 About Forum "Locking"||
Many instructors would like to set open and close dates for discussions, but there isn't a good way to do that yet (as far as I know!). We had hopes for discussion "locking," but it doesn't work the way we thought it would. See this page if you'd like to learn more.
Moodle's Assignment feature is useful and versatile.
|Enable Students to Share Their Work||
We often get requests from instructors for help with enabling their students to share work with their classmates. Depending on your needs, creating a forum or adjusting the permissions for a folder might do the trick.

One of the new features as of Moodle 3.3, here's an explanation of how you might take advantage of an activity that is hidden, but available.

|Plug-Ins You Might Love||
Standard Moodle is great, Moodle with these plug-ins is even better!
These plugins are new to us. We are using them in version 3.5.
|My Favorite Blocks||
Blocks are one of the most useful tools in your Moodle arsenal. Check out my favorites.
Including a course banner at the top of your main course page adds interest and helps participants know what course they're in. Open this page for another way to help course participants keep track of where they are and learn how to add an image to your course name in the dashboard.
|Is Your Banner Image Too Wide?||
Sometimes, the image you insert for your course banner is wider than the viewing space, resulting in the insertion of a horizontal scroll bar. Find out here how you can avoid that (and take advantage of this technique in other text fields, as well!).
This explanation arose in Learn Moodle 3.7 (this one's for you, Twahir!).
|Add a Banner for the Dashboard||
Customize the image shown in the "card" view of courses listed in the dashboard
|View Activity Logs||
Sometimes it's useful to see how your learners are interacting with course materials. Activity logs can reveal all!
|Using the Gradebook||
Moodle's gradebook is a bit daunting at first, but once you "get" it, it's really useful both as a course management tool and as a means of communication with students.
Wondering how to create a badge? Here's a quick description for you, based on what I've learned along the way. One of the big things I just learned was to check the settings of the items you're going to use as the basis for awarding a badge — be sure that you'll be rewarding the behavior that you want to reward!

|Orientation to Online Learning||
This book is an example of how you can use "Available but not shown on course page" to build a seamless learning experience for your learners. It is a stripped-down version of a multi-chapter book of orientation materials for an online masters program at my university. New students must complete the orientation in order to be able to view other materials in the course. Here's how we introduce it:
As you proceed through this orientation, you will have the chance to, submitting a and taking a quiz to . You must participate in all three of these activities in order to successfully complete this orientation and access the other materials and resources in this course.
Note: You do not have to complete all three activities at one time—feel free to return to this orientation and work through it at your convenience.

This is easy to do!
The Questionnaire plug-in allows you to survey your learners inside Moodle.

One of the most convenient aspects of Moodle is being able to copy an entire course or parts of a course from a prior edition into a new course shell.
