A more complete list of resources is available on the Faculty Moodle Resource site.
Search Moodle Forums
“If you use Moodle Forums, you may want to isolate a specific student’s posts in order to provide feedback or a grade. The new “”Search Forums”” feature lets you easily isolate a student’s posts AND you can refine the search so that you only see posts submitted prior to the deadline. See link below to learn more.”

Adding Images to Moodle
While images are not crucial to a good Moodle site, they can help focus students’ attention, break up blocks of text, and support your course content. It is easy to add images to a Moodle label, page, or any Moodle resource or activity using the content editor toolbar. [NOTE: We recommend you use the Firefox browser when adding images as it seems to work best with Moodle image insertion.]
Moodle Gradebook Help for Students and Faculty
Students, you can access your Moodle gradebook by clicking on your profile picture (upper right corner) and then selecting your course from the list. Faculty, want help setting up your gradebook? Contact your LFC or the E-Learning Specialist.

Evaluating Oral Presentations
Instructors, if you use a rubric for evaluating oral presentations, consider converting this into a Moodle rubric or grading guide to help streamline your grading process. You can record your feedback on a laptop during the presentation. Upon clicking “Save,” Moodle adds up the score, enters the grade into the gradebook, and alerts the student to check for your comments. For more on creating a Moodle rubric, see http://go.augsburg.edu/rubric. For grading guides, see http://go.augsburg.edu/
Inserting Zeros in Gradebook
By default, only non-empty grades in the Moodle Gradebook are aggregated; the others are ignored. This means that if instructors want students to have an accurate understanding of their progress in a course, a value must be inserted into the points window. If students have not submitted an assignment, instructors need to insert a 0 (rather than leaving the place blank) to affect the final grade. Here is a quick way to add zeros for all students who haven’t already received a grade for an activity.
