KB1144 - Moodle Mobile App: Accessing Courses
Posted by John Love, Last modified by John Love on 22 July 2016 04:18 PM
The Moodle Mobile app is the official mobile app for the Moodle LMS. 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.
If you haven't yet installed the Moodle Mobile app, please refer to these articles first:
The Main Menu
After logging in, you will be shown the "My courses" screen:
If you touch 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 touching the "three lines" icon again.)
On the right-hand side, you can see the courses you are enrolled in.
Accessing a Course:
To enter a course, touch the course name (e.g. "A Moodle Demonstration Course") or on the Course Contents icon underneath.
Contents will open the selected course.
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 using 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 to create a note.)
In the Mobile app, Students can use an Enrollment Key (usually provided by their Instructor or program) to self-enroll in an online VCC course.
