There are a large number of guides available in RADAR ( the multi-purpose resource bank for Oxford Brookes University). The guides are updated as often as possible. If you do not find the information you need, please get Faculty help.
The assignment tool allows staff to collect work from students, review it and provide feedback including marks, all online.Guidelines for setting up assignments1) When setting up assignments in Moodle please choose the Advanced uploading of files option. 2) Set the Maximum number of uploaded files option to include an allowance for the blue electronic marking card. (e.g. If you only want your students to submit one piece of work you will need to choose two in case they need to attach the blue card.) 3) If you are adamant that you only want to allow students to attach one piece of work to their submission you need to instruct the students to copy and paste the electronic marking card into their assignment document.
Please note that this does not apply to Turnitin assignments as students can only submit one piece of work anyway.
The chat activity module allows participants to have a real-time synchronous discussion in a Moodle course.
The database activity module enables participants to create, maintain
and search a collection of entries (i.e. records). The structure of the
entries is defined by the teacher as a number of fields. Field types
include checkbox, radio buttons, dropdown menu, text area, URL, picture
and uploaded file.
The visual layout of information when listing, viewing or editing
database entries may be controlled by database templates. Database
activities may be shared between courses as presets and a tutor may also
import and export database entries.
If the database auto-linking filter is enabled, any entries in a
database will be automatically linked where the words or phrases appear
within the course.
A tutor can allow comments on entries. Entries can also be rated by
tutors or students (peer evaluation). Ratings can be aggregated to form a
final grade which is recorded in the gradebook.
Database activities have many uses, such as
The feedback activity module enables a tutor to create a custom survey for collecting feedback from participants using a variety of question types including multiple choice, yes/no or text input.
Feedback responses may be anonymous if desired, and results may be shown to all participants or restricted to teachers only. Any feedback activities on the site front page may also be completed by non-logged-in users.
Feedback activities may be used
The file module enables a tutor to provide a file as a course resource. Where possible, the file will be displayed within the course interface; otherwise students will be prompted to download it. The file may include supporting files, for example an HTML page may have embedded images or Flash objects.
Note that students need to have the appropriate software on their computers in order to open the file.

Moodle books are a series of linked web pages displayed in an easy to
use book like format. Website content (HTML pages) can be imported
directly into a book. Books can be printed in their entirety or chapter
by chapter. Books are not interactive but you can link to discussion
forums or quizzes from within them. Flash movies and other multimedia
content can be added to a book.
MOODLE BOOK GUIDES
Moodle enables staff to create quizzes using a wide range of question types (e.g. multiple choice, true-false and short answer questions). The questions are stored in the module question bank for future use. Questions can be imported and exported between courses that staff are the module leader for.
Please make sure that your students do not use Internet Explorer as their browser when completing online quizzes in Moodle. Some students have experienced problems such as incorrectly saved questions and loss of work in Internet Explorer. We are recommending that students use Firefox as their browser when completing quizzes in Moodle.
