When teaching remotely, carefully plan how course information will be delivered. It should be well-organized and easy to find from the student’s point of the view.
- Moodle’s ‘Add an activity or resource’ function enables the instructor to organize content materials through a variety of formats and resources.
- Moodle Preview allows instructors to experiment with these tools and create different layouts and structures until they find one that fits the needs of the course and students best.

- Section your content by creating small blocks or units that do not require extensive scrolling from students to get through.
- Introduce simple hierarchies (e.g., bulleted lists with no more than three different types of bullets/levels).
- Moodle’s Scheduler tools enables the instructor to set up, change, or cancel appointments with individual students or student groups.
- Most activities in Moodle allow the instructor to set their availability, deadline, and several other scheduling-related properties.
- Create and communicate a consistent timeframe for activity and assignment completion.
- Use reminders and other forms of communication to keep student progress on track.
- Build in flexible deadlines when possible, giving students a generous window of time to complete coursework.
