In computer terms, an "Account" is your Username and Password. You go to the website, and enter them into the box.
Do not share your username and password. We will never send you an e-mail asking for your password.
Blocks are items of content or news on the left or right of moodle pages. To add a block, then switch Edit mode on and find the add block dropdown menu:
The trail of links at the top of the page which help you find your way back home.
Course menu block
To find these, click Course administration > Course settings.
Here you can change the Course full name and short name, the course summary. You can set the Course format, layout, access, number of topics/weeks (actually the number of sections), file upload size etc.
This contains a range of editing functions, like move, indent, Update (change or edit), groups mode etc:
Edit mode on
Main course page
This is the view of all the sections in a Moodle course. You get there (usually) when you first arrive at a course, or from the link at the bottom of any page.
Moodle is divided up into courses. Each course has members and it's own space inside Moodle.
Courses can be open to the world, or closed to members only.
The Main course page shows all the section in a course.
Finding our way around is simplified if we remember several things:
This is a section that appears at the top of each page in Moodle. Usually it will contain something like a course forum and little else (to reduce scrolling)
Each person in a course has one or more roles in a course. The Teacher role gives extra administration rights like editing, deleting or moving content, adding or removing members from a course (etc)
The Top menu
AKA the Awesome bar.
