The ITRC offers a variety of instructional technology workshops for individual faculty and group training. We understand that our faculty members have different experience levels and training needs. We offer face-to-face and webinars for Moodle and our other EdTech applications. In addition, we have several instructional design training events available for those needing creative help with their course or making their instructional materials accessible.

Course Settings: Progress Bar and Completion Tracking
Activity completion or progress tracking allows the instructor to monitor student progress through the course. The workshop will show you how to set up and use activity completion in your course. You will also learn how to use the Progress report to see the progress of your students.
The Choice activity is often one of the most overlooked tools in the Moodle ISU toolbox. But the publishing features and restriction options available make Choice one of the most robust and useful tools to promote student interaction.

The Glossary tool within Moodle allows you to create a searchable glossary or encyclopedia of definitions and examples. But the tool can do so much more! Come see how to use the Glossary tool to do more than just add a glossary.
