Moodle Course Template Installation
Posted by Bonnie Tensen on 13 November 2015 11:37 AM

The E-Learning Team recommends that all instructors install the Moodle Course Template (a pre-formatted pattern that incorporates online course design best-practices) in their course(s). The template is intended as a time-saver for instructors, but it also ensures consistency in course design to reduce unnecessary structural stress for students. Note: Go to the Faculty Moodle Resource http://go.augsburg.edu/fmr > "Course Design" section to view the template. 

  1. The template includes resources useful to students (e.g., information about how to access technical help, etc.) as well as a generic course outline.
