This page will help guide you through setting up your modules in
Moodle for 2013/14.
You can either:
- Read the quick information further down
- Download the 2013/14 guide to using Moodle Modules

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.
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 activate.
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
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.
Anyone having problems should contact the Technology Enhanced
Learning team on firstname.lastname@example.org .
