Teaching with Moodle

Follow these guidelines while teaching.

Your course is a combination of Moodle functionality and Google documents. We discourage you from editing ANY course Google documents while teaching as many students print their course materials. Google documents are ALWAYS live; an alteration mid-semester will cause a discrepancy between printed materials, the course site, and the live document.

If you do make changes to your course site, please follow the Top 5 Universal Course Design Guidelines we used to design your course.

Refer to faculty self-help guides when needed.
