Posted by John Love, Last modified by John Love on 11 May 2016 09:44 AM
The Moodle Mobile app is the official mobile app for Moodle. Although VCC's Moodle service works well on the smaller screens of mobile devices, accessing it using a dedicated app on your smartphone or tablet has certain advantages.
Why use the Moodle Mobile App?
It is free and available for download for Apple iOS, Android, or Windows mobile devices.
Adding Your Moodle Account
The first time you open the app after installation, you will be prompted to enter your Moodle Site Address.
Enter this: moodle.vcc.ca
...and hit Enter or click the "Connect!" button.
If the connection to the Moodle server was successful, you will be asked to enter your Moodle Username and Password.
After this, you will be shown the "My courses" screen:
If you click the "three lines" icon in the top-left corner, you will see a vertical menu appear on the left:
From this menu, you can access all the features of the app. (Close the menu by clicking the "three lines" icon again.)
On the right-hand side, you can see the courses you are enrolled in.
Accessing a Course: The Essentials
To enter a course, click on the course name (e.g. "A Moodle Demonstration Course") or on the Course Contents icon underneath.
Participants will show you a list of the other Moodle users who are enrolled in the course.
Grades will show you your Grades.
Notes is not configured for Student use: when clicking this icon, Students will get a message saying "you do not currently have permissions to do that". Teachers will be shown the Notes page, and be able to select from Site, Course, or Personal Notes.
