Moodle Help

This guide is designed to assist with Moodle 4.1 questions.

Add a Participant

Adding a Person

Teachers can add another teacher or TA to their course to assist in editing and grading. Teachers can also add someone as a guest, which grants limited access to a course to view content. EC faculty cannot add students, so speak with the Registrar's office if a student is missing from your roster. Auditing students should also be added through the Registrar's office. After considering the above, do the following: 

  1. Go to the participants section of your course.

  2. Click enrol users. Search for the user by name.

  3. Use the drop-down menu to click the correct role: (Teacher Non-Evaluated, TA, Guest, etc.) 

  4. Click enrol users.

Remove a Participant

Removing a Participant

Removing a participant is quite simple. In order to do so, complete the following steps: 

  1. Go to the participants section of your course.
  2. Locate the user you want to remove, and click on the trash icon (far right).
  3. Click unenrol.

Set up Course Level Groups

Setting Up Groups

The group function will allow you to set up groups and/or group assignments. To create groups, do the following: 

  1. Go to the participants section of your course and select groups from the enrolled users dropdown.
  2. At this point, you can click auto-create groups and choose your settings or use the steps written below to create groups.
  3. Click create group.
  4. Add a group name. Click save changes.
  5. Select the group that you want to add users to from the list. Click add/remove users.
  6. Select the users to add to the group. Click add.

Granting Extensions in Moodle

Granting Assignment Extensions

It is possible to grant extensions on specific assignments and to overall course access. After considering the extension you need, do the following:

Granting Extensions on Specific Assignments

To grant an extension on a specific assignment, activity, or quiz, you have to perform a user override. This is useful if a student was sick or if they have an accommodation that allows for extra time. To perform the override, do the following:

  1. Click the name of the activity for which you need to provide a user override.
  2. Click more, immediately followed by overrides
  3. Select add user override, and then type the name of the student that needs the extension.
  4. Change the due date and select save to ensure the student has access to the activity.

Granting Extensions to Course Access

Students are unable to access their Moodle courses after the semester ends. You will first need to extend activity access, and then contact to request that a student has access to their course. Be sure to include the name of the course, the name of the student, and the last day they will need access.
