Why you need to do this.
We need information about which credit bearing
modules require spaces in Moodle and we’re using a system called
Moodle Modules to capture this information. What we need you to do
is quite simple and outlined below.
NB: You must take responsibility
for making your module selections in Moodle, otherwise you will be
without a Moodle course for the start of next academic year -
Step 1. Log in with your YSJ
username and password at this link: http://intranet.yorksj.ac.uk/MoodleModules/
Step 2. On the
All Modules page– you’ll find a
long list of modules. Either scroll down the page, or use Ctrl and
F on your keyboard to quickly find the module code you need to
Once you’ve located the module, click on the
module code to get to the next screen.
Step 3. Activate the module
in Moodle by:
- selecting what type of course
you want setup in Moodle. Use the Course Type descriptions to guide
your decision. If in doubt about the type of course you want in
Moodle, contact the TEL team.
- adding yourself to a module
by clicking Add Tutor in the Tutors field
- Do not add administrative staff to the list of tutors.
They have a different way of accessing modules in
If you can’t find your module
in the list, the Add
Module page lets you add a module code to
the list of modules which require a space in Moodle. Only official
credit bearing module codes will lead to courses
automatically being generated in Moodle.
It’s really that simple. This then gives us
the information needed to automatically create new courses in
Moodle and to ensure that all your students are enrolled on them,
ready for the coming academic year.
