One of the primary goals of the IT Web Office is to help campus web authors gain self-suffiency. Whenever feasible, the Web Office will teach clients how to solve a problem rather than fixing the problem ourselves.
The Web Office provides limited training to current SSU faculty, staff and students. The Web Office cannot provide training to those outside the university community.
During Fall 2011, our emphasis will be in Moodle training for faculty and other Moodle "teachers."
- Moodle Basics
- 1 hour, small group workshops covering the absolute basics.
- Faculty Moodle Labs
- Open lab times with hands-on support from Web Office staff
- Moodle Grade Book Consultation & Setup
- One-on-one consultation appointments focused on making the Moodle Grade Book work for you, your students and your course.
We're also planning to resume our usual workshops during Fall 2011:
- Introduction to Dreamweaver
- Web Accessibility
- Other topics in association with the CTPD and Library
Check the Web Office Training Calendar (Seawolf login required) for current offerings and schedule.
Personal one-on-one training in use of Moodle and Dreamweaver is available to faculty and staff for instructional or departmental projects. Such training is available only when Web Office staff time permits, and by advance appointment only. Such training is limited to orientations of Dreamweaver or Moodle, how to do a specific task, or use a specific tool or feature. Personal training is not intended to help with personal projects unrelated to university instruction or business. Ongoing one-on-one training is not available.
Moodle Class Orientations
Web Office staff or student assistants can provide an in-class orientation of Moodle for an entire class. Topics covered include:
- Logging into Moodle
- Orientation to Moodle course layout
- Basic Moodle tasks – how to post a discussion board message, how to upload an assignment
- Brief Q&A
- Tips for avoiding technical problems
Faculty must request a Moodle Class Orientation at least one week in advance, and are confirmed based on Web Office staff and student availability.
Moodle Class Orientations are most effective when scheduled in computer lab or tech classroom. Instructor is responsible for scheduling the lab in accordance with IT Lab procedures. If a lab is not available and the class doesn't meet in a Tech Classroom, contact the IT Helpdesk and request a computer and data projector delivery.
