Welcome Spring 2013 Instructors
Dear Spring 2013 Moodle Course Instructors,
This note is for instructors who are using the District’s Moodle website (Spring 2013) at http://online.peralta.edu/spring2013. This Spring moodle site is now open for the instructors. All shells have been created. We plan to begin uploading students into their courses a week before the Spring classes start, but students will not be able to get into your course until you make it available to them.
Please remember firstname.lastname@example.org is our helpdesk for instructors at BCC (WordPress and Moodle – we are in room 541 – http://www.berkeleycitycollege.edu/wp/de). email@example.com is the district helpdesk for students. If your students need help, they should contact firstname.lastname@example.org; if you need help, please contact us at email@example.com or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How To Find Your Course:
The District’s Spring 2013 moodle website is at http://online.peralta.edu/spring2013. We start with a new moodle each semester. There should be a course site for every Peralta course; many combined courses have already been prepared.
How To Make Your Course Available (Open to Students):
Here is the simple two-step procedure:
• On your course homepage, click on Course administration > Edit settings.
• Then, go to the bottom of the page to the “Availability” setting and change it to “This course available to students” and save.
How To Move Your Course:
If you need help finding or moving a previous moodle course, please contact me, or email@example.com – please include this important information in your request:
• The existing course name and class code, and where it is located (e.g., Fall 2011, Summer 2011).
• The course title and class code.
• The typical turnaround time is within 3 days. Requests coming in after June 10 date may take longer to complete.
How To Login:
Please try logging in using your Fall or Spring moodle login info. If you didn’t use those moodles, the login information is as below, otherwise contact me or firstname.lastname@example.org to have your password reset:
Username: this is your PROMT User ID
Password: this is your 8-digit Employee ID# – these are all numbers
After logging in, the link to your course will display on the homepage. The first time you access the course site you will be prompted to read and accept the Site Policy – everyone does this. To edit your moodle account, click on your name in the upper right corner or bottom of the page.
Check Your Participants List:
After the initial roster upload (a week before the Fall classes start), please check your Participants list to make sure students are being uploaded. Your students will not be able to enter your course site until you make the course “available” to them. Contact email@example.com if students are not appearing in your Participants list. Student uploads will be daily until Census Day.
Student Login Instructions:
There are student login instructions on the moodle homepage. Students having login difficulties should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their full name and 8-digit Student ID#.
