If you want help importing your Moodle content from last year’s version of the course into this year’s, it would be helpful if you ‘activate’ your Moodle course the day before you come to see us. Moodle Modules and Moodle itself only sync up twice a day, at midday and midnight, so if this isn’t done before you come to see us we won’t be able to help. The links below have instructions on how to activate your modules, how to import content and how to develop your course in line with the TEL Quality Framework and the 3E Framework. We’ll also be releasing regular Moodle Monday blog posts throughout the academic year, with hints and tips on a number of new and existing Moodle features. Subscribe to our blog to receive email updates of new posts!

We’ll be holding more surgeries in January, for those who are only teaching in Semester 2. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any Moodle queries at If there’s a particular tool or feature you’d like us to blog about in our Moodle Monday posts, let us know in the comments below!
