Back to School Moodle Checklist
If you have taught the same course in the past, request to have materials brought over from a previous semester here.
Keep in mind that the new course will be populated with students for the new semester, but that you will need to remember to:
Remove previous syllabus and upload an updated version
Check the entire course for broken links, missing documents, images, videos, etc.
Make sure that all items in the course are working properly
Set correct start dates and cut off dates for assignments and quizzes
Make sure that forums have the proper dates and settings
Hide any items you don’t want students to access until later in the semester
If you changed any weights for graded items in the syllabus, make sure the gradebook categories and items are adjusted appropriately
Fix or clarify any areas that caused a problem last semester (i.e., if students didn’t understand instructions or had trouble with any activities)
Make a welcome announcement to your students (keep in mind that they will receive the message as soon as you post it to the main course forum)
Make the course available to students
If you’re unsure about how to complete any of these tasks or have any other questions, please refer to the Moodle help documentation here, or call the Service Center at 973 408-4357.
Attention Faculty: Fall 2014 and Jan Term 2015 Moodle courses have been archived in an effort to keep everyone's Moodle pages organized. If you need something unarchived please fill out a help request here.
