Once registered, how do I access the resources?

We will create logins for you and your students, and then send you a spreadsheet containing your login details. This will include a username and password for each teacher or student which allows you/them to log in to our Moodle platform, and a class code which can be used to enter the course.If you have registered for multiple courses, you will have a different code for each. The code will only be needed when entering each course for the first time, and from then on it will appear on your dashboard whenever you log in.

Can I track my students’ use of the modules?

Teachers can view a gradebook in Moodle. This will show quiz results for modules where they are available, completion of modules, and when students last accessed each section of the course.
