After learning about Getting Started with Moodle, courses or classes will need to be set up for the site to function. The following tutorial will outline how to set up a course in Moodle.

Creating Courses in Moodle

  1. Log into the Moodle Dashboard.
  2. creating-courses-in-moodle-turn-editing-on Before any courses can be added, "editing" will need to be turned on. Go to the settings section on the left and click Turn on editing.
  3. creating-courses-in-moodle-new-course Next there will be a button titled Add a New Course. Click the button and the Edit Course Settings page will load.
  4. creating-courses-in-moodle-course-setting Edit Course Settings: Here the course settings can be set for the basic course description. The fields that are highlighted red must be filled in to add the course. Fill out the course information. This is not terribly critical. If there are any mistakes made, the course settings can always be changed at a later date.
  5. creating-courses-in-moodle-save-changes Navigate to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes.
  6. creating-courses-in-moodle-course-created After saving the changes, on the left in the navigation section of the side bar, the new course will be available.

Once the course is created, there may be settings that need updating. The next tutorial is on How do I edit the Course Settings in Moodle.
