Course Management 
Category: 
It is likely that your course may be one of several selections available at the Moodle site 
front page. Courses are typically assigned to a category (e.g. Language Arts, Workplace 
Safety etc.), and your Moodle administrator may have done this when the course template 
was created. If not, make a selection from the Category value list that places your course in 
the correct category for your organization.  
Full name: 
Give your course a full name, as it will appear in the header area of the home page               
(e.g. Moodle 101), and in the site front page category. 
Short name: 
This is the name that will appear in the Navigation bar  breadcrumbs  are (e.g. M101) 
ID Number: 
If you have an official code name for this course then use it here. Otherwise, leave blank. 
Summary: 
Enter a brief desciption for your course; about a paragraph of information that describes it to 
someone visiting the site front page. 
Format: 
Select a display format for the course (Topic, Weekly or Social), as discussed on page 11.  
Course start date: 
If you selected Weekly format, assign a date for when the course will go live. 
Enrollment period: 
If you would like to set a time limit for how long a participant can be enrolled in your course, 
make a selection here. If you do not wish to set an enrollment period limit, select Unlimited. 
When you set enrollment period limits, a participant will be automatically unenrolled from the 
course on the specified number of days after they have first entered the course. 
Number of weeks/topics: 
If you chose either Topic or Weekly format, select the number of topics or weeks your 
course will be comprised of. 
Group mode: 
Group mode allows you to segment participants into either Separate or Visible groups. 
Groups are discussed in the Learner Management section of the manual. 
Force (Group mode): 
If the group mode is "forced" at a course level, then the course group mode is applied to 
every activity in that course. Individual group settings in  each  activity  are  then  ignored.           
This is useful when, for example, one wants to set up a course for a number of completely 
separate cohorts. 
Availability: 
This option allows you to "hide" your course completely. It will not appear on any course 
listings, except to teachers of the course and administrators. Even if students try to access 
the course URL directly, they will not be allowed to enter. 
Enrollment key: 
A course enrolment key is what keeps unwanted people out of your course. If you leave this 
blank, then anyone who has created a Moodle username on this site will be able to enrol in 
your course simply by going in to it. If you put something here, then students who are trying 
to get in for the FIRST TIME ONLY will be asked to supply this word or phrase.  
The idea is that you will supply the key to authorized people using another means like private email, snail mail, on 
the phone or even verbally in a face to face class. If this password "gets out" and you have unwanted people 
enrolling, you can unenrol them (see their user profile page) and change this key. Any legitimate students who 
have already enrolled will not be affected, but the unwanted people won t be able to get back in.
