Then, take the self-paced Introduction to Moodle course to learn all the basics. In no time, you’ll be taking advantage of all that Moodle has to offer you and your students.

Score 31-57: You have a good grasp of the Moodle basics, but you’re missing out on some really helpful features that can drive student success. You can visit the Moodle Play Site to see a demonstration of some of the great tools Moodle offers. Then, try Module 2 of the self-paced Introduction to Moodle course.

Score 58 and up: You’re well on your way with using Moodle, but now you want to take things to the next level and try out some new tools. The Moodle Play Site is the perfect place to experiment. Also, browse the articles in the Beyond the Basics section of the Moodle Help Center. Then make an appointment with an Instructional Designer for personalized help.
