2) Tutoring Videos

This video shows how to create and manage group and grouping in Moodle as well as how to use Group Choice feature to allow students to select their own group/class.

This video shows you how you can create a quiz or assignment in Moodle and restrict access to it based on groups. Creating Groups in Moodle to Assign Different Assignments to Students:

3) Groups submission settings in Assignment

These settings allow students to collaborate on a single assignment, eg. working in the same online area or uploading, editing and reuploading an MS Powerpoint in the common assignment area.

More details, click https://docs.moodle.org/310/en/Assignment_settings

4) Using groups with forums

A great way to engage groups of students in an online learning environment is through creating a discussion forum while using the group mode of 'separate groups' in the forum setting.

This lets specific groups of students in a project-based task collaborate in the same forum but not have to worry about peers who aren't in their group distracting the threads (task ideas) they are working on.

A) add Padlet to Moodle LMS

With Backpack plan

When students or teachers access Padlets that have been added as external tools, Padlet creates matching accounts for them in your Backpack school and automatically logs them in. You won't have to worry about accounts at all. What's more, Padlets will still be limited to only students and teachers.

1)

On your Padlet go to your Share menu.

1 1

2)

Click the option to "Add to your LMS as an external tool".

2 2

3)

Under Behavior, you can change the default setting to "Everyone works on their own copy of this padlet" and your padlet immediately becomes a template.

Students will have their own copy to work on; your original padlet stays the same.

3 3

Five fields to copy: Secure Tool URL; Consumer key; Shared secret; Secure icon URL; Custom parameters; and then paste them in your Moodle course.

4)

Enter your Moodle course, click Add an activity or Resource, select External Tool, then proceed to paste each field from your Padlet into its matching one in your Moodle course.

Communicate with the students in your Moodle class

1) Post an announcement in the Announcements Forum. Moodle LMS will email the post to all your students in the class. See below.

2) Use the Moodle Message function

- This is not a regular email, but an instant message within the class.

- Click Participants

- Select students

- Click the drop-down menu at the bottom

 With selected users... Send a message

- Students will receive this message in the Messaging Drawer (at the up-right corner, beside the user name)

Note: 

In the Message Settings, you can also enable the Email and/or Mobile notification. That is, Moodle LMS will also notify your students of the message by email or mobile phone.

Unique Behaviors of the Announcements Forum

Announcements appears by default in the top section
Although you can move the Announcements forum out of the top section, we recommend you do not as this may make it more difficult for your students to find.

Send an email copy of your posts.
Moodle will send an email copy of your posts to the entire class. The email includes any attachments to the post. You can choose to make subscription optional or disable it (see Edit Announcements Settings, below). 

To change whether class members receive emails of posts, locate and open Subscription and tracking section, and from the Subscription mode drop-down, select a new option:

  • Optional subscription- Participants can choose whether to be subscribed.
  • Forced subscription (default) - Everyone is subscribed and cannot unsubscribe.
  • Auto subscription - Everyone is subscribed initially, but can choose to unsubscribe at any time.
  • Subscription disabled - Subscriptions are not allowed.

 

Click Advanced

Note: Your post will be held for 30 minutes prior to being sent. The post can be edited within that time-frame. If you are feeling very confident and would like your new post emailed immediately, check Send forum post notification with no editing-time delay.

The Latest Announcements block and Announcements Forum are interconnected.

The Latest announcement block displays the titles of your most recent posts to Announcements and links to those posts.
