Intro to our Moodle

1. Let's look at the CCH Moodle

Let’s look at our Moodle.

First of all I hear you say – What is a Moodle? 

Moodle is the brand name for the specific learning management system we are using. So when we talk about our Moodle we mean our online “learning management system”.

 

Moodle navigation can initially be a bit of a problem for some users.

Some of the reasons why are:

  • There are different Moodle themes so not all Moodles look the same.
  • Not all Moodles are used for the same or similar purposes.
  • There are several different navigation options.
  • There is a ‘’site home” screen and also ‘’user home’’ screens within any Moodle.  

 

Don't give up before you start because really, once you get the "hang" of where you are in the Moodle and how you navigate a Moodle site or course, it's not hard.

The more you use Moodle the easier it will become to navigate around. In my experience, if you get into trouble, use the breadcrumb trail to help you go back to a course or home. The breadcrumb trail appears in a band at the upper part of the screen page and looks like this. On our Moodle it is below our logo.

(NOTE: At present you are in a Moodle "book" which can have chapters and pages just like a paper book.
