Moodle tip of the week:
- I moved: I have changed offices and
now have a more picturesque view. I am in MC201. From my old office (MC242)
head along the corridor between the stacks and the study carrels until just
before you run into the wall. Turn left, and there I am. There is a map on the
door of 242, which is once again a study room.
- How to take a screenshot II. Whether it’s
an error message you want to send tocourserequestor a picture for your students, Screenshots often come in handy. All Windows 7
and 8 computers have a program called Snipping Tool. Here’s a great
tutorial:How to use
the Snipping Tool
- Groups and Groupings. Do you want to use
groups in your Moodle classes? And what in the world is a grouping and do I
need it? Come to the Moodle Webinar: Membership Has Its Privileges: The
Power of Groups on Wednesday 12 November from 2-3p in the Commons.

the best ways to use discussions in Moodle? Then theBest Practices: Forums webinar
