== Accessing Moodle ==
 
 
 
Type [http://go.middlebury.edu/moodle go/moodle] in the address bar to log in. <br>
 
Faculty, students, and staff may access Moodle with a Middlebury username and password. Access to a Moodle course site is also possible if the site has been made visible on the class’ Course Hub page.<br>
 
 
 
== Creating a Site (Faculty)  ==
 
 
 
Faculty may create Moodle sites from the Course Hub at [http://go.middlebury.edu/hub go/hub]<br> If you are unable to create a course site, contact the Helpdesk (helpdesk@middlebury.edu, 802.443.2200).<br> To learn more about the Course Hub, visit the [[CourseHub|Course Hub Wiki]].<br>
 
To learn more about creating a Moodle site, see the [http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Moodle#Creating_a_Site full Moodle wiki page].
 
 
 
== Adding Participants to a Site (Faculty/Teacher role) ==
 
 
 
Moodle sites created via the Course Hub '''automatically include all registered students''' as participants in the role of students. As additional students register for the course or decide to drop the course, the Course Hub will update the Moodle site participant list.
 
 
 
Please note: '''Students who audit a course''' must register as auditors before they can get access to the course site. If you would like to add an auditor to a Moodle site, consult [[Moodle_FAQs#I_have_a_student_who_is_auditing_my_course.2C_but_s.2Fhe_cannot_access_the_Moodle_course_site.|I_have_a_student_who_is_auditing_my_course_but_s/he_cannot_access_the_Moodle_course_site.]] in our [[Moodle FAQs]].
 
 
 
== Editing a Site (Faculty/Teacher role)  ==
 
 
 
To edit your Moodle site, click on the "Turn editing on" button in the top right corner. For more information on editing your site, see the [http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Moodle#Editing_a_Site full Moodle Wiki Page].<br>
 
 
 
'''Q. How do I change the format of the course?''' (e.g. set it up by Week or by Topic) Go to the Administration panel (usually in the left sidebar) and chose "Settings," then follow the [http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Moodle#Format Format] instructions in the [[Moodle|full Moodle Wiki Page]].<br> '''Q. How do I make the course visible/invisible to students?'''&nbsp;Go to the Administration panel (usually in the left sidebar) and chose "Settings," then follow the [http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Moodle#Availability Availability] instructions in the [[Moodle|full Moodle Wiki Page]].<br>
 
 
 
== Participating in Activities on a Site ==
 
 
 
Moodle sites may include activities such as forums, assignments, quizzes. These activities are set up by faculty for students to participate in as part of their course work.<br> Instructions for how to participate in the activity are included on the site itself, in the form of “?” icons: <br>[[Image:Questionsinmoodle.JPG]] <br>
 
For more information on adding activities to your site, see the [http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Moodle#Participating_in_Activities_on_a_Site full Moodle Wiki Page].<br>
