The first School of Kinesiology’s Kickstart Mini Workshop was held on October 11, 2016.
Melissa Falldin, CEHD instructional designer, presented “The CEHD Moodle Template – Making An Instructor’s Life Easier and Your Students Happier! “. Melissa explained the rationale behind the CEHD Moodle template and the benefits for students and faculty to build a course based on this template’s elements. Immediately participants applied two-column setup and other recommendations to their own Moodle courses.
To apply the template to an existing Moodle course, see the CEHD Moodle Template Quickstart Guide or follow these steps:
- Backup existing Moodle site
- Request a new Moodle course by pasting the specific CEHD Moodle Template URL [https://ay16.moodle.umn.edu/course/view.php?id=638] into field “Existing course to copy” on the request page
- Import recent Moodle course (from backup file)
Participant Eydie Kramer: I was glad that I had the opportunity to attend this workshop. I have been having some concerns regarding uploading video clips I use in class, and I received feedback on how to better store and present these video clips on my Moodle page. Thank you to everyone who put this workshop together!
