Logs show you the activity in your class for different days or times. This can be useful to check
to see if everyone has done a certain task, or spent a required amount of time online within
certain activities. When you select Logs from the Administration block, a report screen (Fig. 65)
is revealed that allows you to set filter criteria for the type of logs (Fig. 66) you wish to view,
Course you want to view
If Groups are enable, which group you want to view
A specific participant (or All participants) whose logs you want to view
A date (or all dates) for logs you want to view
Which course activity (or All activities) logs you want to view
The Files feature (Fig. 67) allows you to upload files to the server within your course.
These files are stored in a special place on the server, outside of the public directory (cannot
be access by web surfers). Students do not have access to these files unless you link them to
an activity within the course, using the HTML editor (see page 15). A file can be text
documents, sound, graphic or video, spreadsheet, PowerPoint or any executable file. Moodle
will either open it for the student within their browser, or download.
You can create a folder within the Files area for storing all course resources
you want to allow students to have access to on the course homepage. One
option from the Add a resource menu is Display a directory , which allows
you to select only the directory for display you created in the Files area.

This is a forum that is accessible by teachers only. It can be used to discuss anything you like,
but may be especially useful if face to face meetings are difficult (if schedules conflict). It may
also be useful for departmental discussions and course creation ideas.
