Quick tips for re-using a Moodle site

If you have duplicated a previous Moodle for an upcoming class (Step 6 here), here are a few tips:

 

★ Change due dates all on the same page (instead of going into each assignment one-at-a-time):

  1. Click the Gear Icon in the top right corner of your Moodle site.
  2. At the bottom of the menu, click More.
  3. Click the Reports tab.
  4. Click Dates.
  5. (May want to click Expand All at the point if you have a lot of sections.)
  6. Change due dates and Save changes!

 

★ Use the Mass Action block if you need to move around or delete numerous items:

  1. If necessary, expand the left-side menu by clicking the ☰ button in the top-left corner of the screen.
  2. Scroll down to the very bottom of that menu, and click Add a block.
  3. Select Mass action block.

Your students can't see this block, and it allows for bulk editing.
