General Procedures for Moodle ISU Moodle ISU


Introduction

This handout explains basic Moodle ISU procedures, including how to request a Moodle course, how teachers of record are assigned, and how student enrollment works.

This guide will help you to understand:

Course Creation

Moodle ISU courses are created based on information provided in the class schedule and managed by the ISU Registrar. Your department course scheduler must indicate the need for a Moodle ISU course by marking Moodle Required in the course request form.

Moodle ISU courses become available for instructors to begin working on as soon as the class schedule from their department is entered into Banner by the Registrar’s office. This means that Moodle ISU courses will be created before registration begins for students.

If you did not request a Moodle ISU course when the initial schedule was submitted, contact your designated department course scheduler to update the class schedule information. Once the Registrar receives the updated information, the Moodle ISU course will be created automatically.

If you did request a Moodle ISU course when the initial schedule was submitted, you can find your future courses in your My Courses list.

To find other courses:

  1. At the bottom of the page, Click on All courses to search.

Metacourse Creation

If you are teaching multiple sections of the same course you can request a single Moodle ISU course (metacourse) with all the students enrolled after the Registrar has designated you the lead instructor.

To request a metacourse:

  1.  Fill out the Moodle ISU Metacourse Request Online Form and Click Submit.

Development Courses

If you would like to begin working on your course before the class schedule is complete, or you need to begin work developing a future course, you may request a Development course.

To request a Development course:

  1. Fill out the Moodle ISU Special Course Request Online Form and Click Submit.

Note: Development courses do not enroll students.

Faculty Assignments

Faculty Assignments are created based on the information provided in the class schedule and managed by the ISU Registrar.

To be listed as the instructor of record for a course:

  1. Contact your designated Department Course Scheduler to update the class schedule information.
  1. Once the Registrar receives the updated information, Moodle ISU will be updated and you will access to the Moodle ISU course.
  2. An instructor of record may add additional instructors as needed within the Moodle ISU course.
  1. For more information, see Assigning Roles. 

Student Enrollment

Once registration opens for the term, students will be enrolled automatically as they register.

For new students, it may take up to 48 hours before the student has access to Moodle ISU.

Note: Moodle ISU courses will automatically be made available on the first day of the term. Faculty can make the courses available earlier, as appropriate.
