3What is TITANiumTitanium will replace Blackboard insummer 2012Learning Management System

TITANium is our new Moodle based Learning Management System that will replace Blackboard in Summer 2012.

Moodle is a learning management system that lets you provide documents, graded assignments, quizzes, discussion forums, etc. to your students with an easy to learn and use interface.

Here is the random fact of the moment, does anyone know what MOODLE stands for?

The abbreviation Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment

The navigation block allowes easy access to jump to sections of MOODLE, a course, or other tools without having to scroll around. In addition all blocks show you the path of how you arrived at a given destination.

The setting block - Every page shows contextual settings as well as settings for anything else you have permissions for.

Topic Outline and Blocks - 6Icon Overview

In order to see the editing icons, you must click the turn editing on button. The first step in learning to use the system is to memorize what each of the Icons does.

Moving will allow you to move an item to any given topic block in the topic outline.

To either indent an item click on the Move Right arrow.

To modify the content or settings of an item click on Update.

Duplicating an item is easy by clicking on the times 2 button.

If you decide that you need to delete an item you will click on the X.

When an item is not ready to be shown, you can click on the Hide icon so only you can see it while in editing mode.

Click on the Groups icon to break up an item by groups. As a side note, groups must be set up first under Settings > Users > Groups

There is also an Assign Roles button, to change a students role just for that item.

7Text Editor

The text editor has full featured formatting tools.

Such as find, find and replace, Full screen mode, Bold, Italics, Underline, subscript, superscript, Allignment, Cleanup of background code or removal of all formatting depending how bad what had copied is acting. There is also tools to paste from word documents so that the background code doesn't get copied over in the first place. Anytime you copy content from Microsoft word documents, there always seems to be some issues that come up, this prevents that. You insert images and other media, and you also have a spell check too.

For those of you that use math expressions, there is a tool called DragMath that can insert those expressions into the editor.

Once you are done in an editor, always click on Save Changes as a rule of thumb. The save changes is located at the bottom of a page.8Resource FileLoad any file that you want a student to accessCan be various file types

With Moodle, adding various file types is easy. After you finish with the next activity, you will go though a demonstration of how simple it is to upload both Word and PowerPoint documents to Moodle. You add a resource file as a reference for the student, and no grade is attached. These files can be word, powerpoint and any other file. An example of this would be a syllabus, or presentation that you want a student to review.

Any single digital file you can create, you can upload into Moodle. The only two things to consider here are file size (if the size is too large, can the students download it) and do the students need a copy of that program to view the document. 9Activity 1 complete item 1 and 2When you click on the activities, they will allow you to practice in a simulated environment. This environment will give you feedback as you proceed.

GradesSet up your categories in Grades before adding assignmentsEasily group Grades

Moodle Grades is a powerful tool for tracking student scores in your course. You can use it for scored activities both in the classroom and online in Moodle.

You can access the grades area by clicking the Grades link in the Settings block on your course administration page.

Now you have the ability to easily group grades. An example of grouped grades could be "Assignments, Project and Exams." By organizing your grade book this way, it improves the readability for both you and your students when you want to see course standing in each category. Also when you run the Grader Report, it allows you to minimize sections so it is easer to enter grades from assignments or activities submitted outside of Moodle. 12AssignmentsFour Different assignment types Advanced Uploading of FilesOnline TextUpload a Single File

Assignments are a simple method for collecting student work. They are a flexible catch-all for things you want to grade.

The assignment module gives you an easy way to allow students to upload digital content for grading. You can ask them to submit essays, spreadsheets, presentations, web pages, photographs, or small audio or video clips. You can also create offline assignments to remind students of they need to complete.

There are four assignment types that we will review.

Advanced Uploading of Files : This allows each student to upload one or more files in any format. As the instructor, you can also upload one or more files for each student, either at the start or in response to their submission. A student may enter notes describing their submitted files, progress status, or any other relevant information.

Online Text: This allows students to input text online. You can grade the assignment online and, if necessary, add inline comments or changes.

Upload a Single File: This allows each student to upload a single file in any format, including a ZIP file.

Offline Activity: This is useful when the assignment is performed outside of Moodle. It could be something face-to-face or on paper. Students can see a description of the assignment, but they cant upload any files.13Activity 2Only complete items 3 and 4 questions about these activities?
