As one academic year comes to an end, it’s time to start planning ahead. Do you have approval for any new 2019/20 modules?  Would you like to start creating them now?

Take the following simple steps to setup your new Moodle modules.

Step 1

Complete the New Moodle Module Request form on the Service Desk Landing Portal, click on the Log a service request icon.

Three icons each with a different title 1. Report a Fault. 2. Log a service request. 3. My Authorisations

This will bring you to the My Services page, firstly make sure that you are on the All My Services tab, then select the Moodle link.

This screens shows you the All My Service page with the different icons for different services in the university

Step 2

On  the Moodle service page, click on blue Moodle Request on the lower half of the screen.

Step 3

From  the Moodle Request page, click on the drop-down arrow alongside What would you like to do? Select Request a new module to be created on Moodle, then click Next. Use the page that appears to input the details of your module. Please make sure that all mandatory fields (denoted by a red asterisk) are completed.

Step 4

When you’re happy with the information you have supplied click Finish. Once the form has been submitted you’ll receive an email confirming your request and a reference number.

We’ll get to work creating your site for you and then we’ll send you an email to confirm when it’s ready for you to create. Don’t forget to ask for help from your faculty Online Course Developers, should you need it.

You’ll notice that Moodle modules look a little different this year, as we’ve incorporated a Moodle Baseline template. The Moodle Baseline template features five tabs: welcome, module overview, learning outcomes, reading lists and assessment.  For more information about the Moodle Baseline there is a dedicated website for guidance and help.  Or you can attend one of our TEL Training Moodle Baseline workshops, see our full schedule here.
