Workshop: Introduction to the Gradebook - 1 hour

PolyLearn Moodle’s Gradebook provides a central location where students’ grades can be stored and displayed via a computer browser such as Firefox, Safari or Chrome. Instructors can keep track of their students’ progress within the Gradebook and choose which set of grades students are allowed to view. If you choose to use the Gradebook, students can only see their own personal grades in the Gradebook and keep track of their progress in the course. This workshop will cover the basics of the PolyLearn Moodle Gradebook such as setting up preferences, adding and assigning grade categories, manually adding and editing grades, downloading assignment submissions from the Gradebook, exporting/importing grades, and weighting your Gradebook with the simple weighted mean option.

Note: This is a hands-on workshop located in the Library's computer lab 35-216b PC lab.

Workshop: Introduction to PolyLearn Moodle

This face-to-face workshop (or its online equivalent) is a prerequisite for any of the other PolyLearn Moodle workshops we offer. In this workshop, we'll be demonstrating the basics that faculty need to be familiar with in order to get started with PolyLearn Moodle. (Note: This workshop will not cover advanced topics such as quizzes, grading, wikis, blogs, etc.) Come and be guided in an introduction to the layout and fundamental tools of PolyLearn Moodle and learn about other available training resources to assist you in using Cal Poly's new learning management system.
