There have been some changes in the self-enrolment settings regarding new Moodle courses. With the self-enrolment function, students can enrol themselves to a course so that teachers don’t have to add them one by one.
These changes concern your new Moodle courses, if you would like to:
Get students to enrol themselves into a Moodle course site
Set an enrolment key for the course
What’s changed: The self-enrolment function is no longer automatically open by default, but it is hidden. To enable self-enrolment: Go to “Administration” > “Course administration” > “Users” > “Enrolment methods” and open the “eye” icon on the line “Self enrolment”. You can also set an enrolment key. For more information, please see instructions.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at moodle @ helsinki.fi Thank you!
Moodle was updated to a new version 3.1.4 on 10th January 2017.
Changes in the new version:
Grading Assignment submissions has got smoother by showing all elements on one screen. The teacher can annotate uploaded PDFs within the browser, and on saving, the annotated file is made available to the student. It is recommended to advice students to upload their submissions in PDF format.
The teacher can easily restore deleted items by the new Recycle bin. The content will be permanently deleted after two weeks.
When a Folder resource contains many files, students and teachers can download them all in a zipped file.
“Teaching with Moodle” is a free MOOC-course open for registration for everyone interested in learning more about Moodle. The course is especially geared for teachers who would like to develop their own use of Moodle and gain experience studying with a MOOC. This course is a great opportunity to connect with the international Moodle-community and to share new ideas with teachers who use Moodle worldwide.
The MOOC will begin on 2nd January, 2017 and lasts for four weeks. The completion of the course for accomplishment grade is optional. You are free to participate as an auditor with your own user login, to follow the course when it is convenient for you.
For registration, you just need an email account, which will enable you to create your own password for login purposes. This MOOC is designed and organized by Moodle HQ, not University of Helsinki. We hope you may take this wonderful opportunity!
