FAQ and Other Tips and Tricks

This page is home to our FAQ, where you can find information on all sorts of things, from useful info about using Moodle and Google Docs to how to give someone access to course materials.  If you have any questions you would like to see us add answers to, please email us.

Since we have many questions answered here, we recommend that you either search by entering a keyword or by choosing a category in the blue box below instead of browsing the entire set.  For ease of use, we have links to broad categories below, but if you are looking for something that does not fit these categories, more are available in the drop-down menu in the blue box.  You may choose to add a focus (second category) to narrow your search.

Where should readings be stored if I will be using the readings again in future classes?

eReserves: Although you are able to access archived Moodle course sites, the Library archives past eReserves materials, making it easier to use in the future if it’s for a different course.

Moodle: You can easily reuse old Moodle courses and all the material in them by backing up the old course, and then restoring or importing into the new course.  This keeps all of your readings intact.  If you linked to eReserves in the old course, you may need to fix the link and work with Vonnie to reuse those eReserves.
