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 - 2014/15.

Quick Information

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 in Moodle.

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 tel@yorksj.ac.uk .
