Administration Features 
Flat file: This method will repeatedly check for and process a specially formatted text file in the location 
that you specify. The file can look something like this:  
   add, student, 5, CF101 
   add, teacher, 6, CF101 
   add, teacheredit, 7, CF101 
   del, student, 8, CF101 
   del, student, 17, CF101 
   add, student, 21, CF101, 1091115000, 1091215000 
Paypal: The Paypal module (Fig. 76) allows you to set up paid courses. If the cost for any course is zero, 
then students are not asked to pay for entry. There is a site wide cost that you set here as a default for 
the whole site, and then a course setting that you can set for each course  individually                       
(within the  Settings  property screen). The course cost overrides the site cost. You must have a Paypal 
user account (free) to collect funds when students 
make a purchase. With the Paypal enrolment 
scheme activated, students are queried when they 
make a course selection from the site front page 
as  to  whether  or  not  they  want  to  make  a          
purchase. On click, they are taken to Paypal and 
the regular merchant transaction process for you 
account is followed. Paypal no longer requires an 
individual making a purchase to have their own 
Paypal account; this fact makes Moodle's Paypal 
enrolment feature simple and invaluable when

creating paid courseware or collecting tuition.  
When Paypal enrolment method is selected, a new 
Property (Cost:) appears on the course  Settings  screen   
    
Enroll students: This features allows an admin to select a course and manually add students. 
    
Assign teachers: Admin can select a course and manually add 
a teacher. Teachers can be given  editing permissions  within a 
course, or blocked from using the editing features. 
    
Assign creators: This selection allows an admin to change a 
users permissions (Fig. 77), allowing them to create new course 
templates and to teach within such courses.  
    
Assign admins: A primary  admin  can  change  a  users              
permissions to admin, from a screen like Fig. 77. Admins have 
Fig. 77 
all privileges of a primary admin, except they cannot create other 
admins.  
Courses 
This selection allows the admin to define new  categories  
and  to  populate  these  categories  with  new  courses           
(e.g. Mathematics (category)   8th Grade Algebra Class 
(course). Fig. 78 displays the property screen for creating, 
deleting or hiding categories, and the button to  Add a new 
course . Courses can be moved from one category to 
another, and you can change the order on the site front 
page in which categories appear. 
Logs 
Admins may be asked to examine the activity logs of a 
certain student on occasion, and report their findings to a 
Fig. 78 
teacher or organizational manager. The Logs selection in 
Administration allows you to do this (Fig. 79), with features for selecting: 
    
A course to view 
    
A student to view 
    
A date or range to view 
    
Fig. 79 
A specific activity to view 
Logs are also available to a teacher 
within their course as a selection in  
the Administration block.
