Moodle tips of the week:

  1. How do I find my classes? (they aren’t there!)
  2. META courses.If you need a META course for fall, please email that request tocourserequest@viterbo.eduASAP. We need the following information:
    • Course prefix, numbers and sections
    • If there is more than one instructor, knowing those names is very helpful.

If you have complex METAs, then the sooner the better. What is a META?

  1. How do I import my courses from last semester (or fall)?
    NOTE: TURNITIN USERS: Don’t import Turnitin assigments – you will have to recreate them
  2. How do I make my courses visible to students?

Need Help?

You can also get help by emailing this works better than emailing Chad or I directly or leaving voicemail for us.

Have a great start to the semester!
