Exploring the Moodle System
Now that your Moodle system is up and running, we will look at the components that make up the learning platform. Think of these as the foundation on which Moodle is built.
In this chapter, you will learn about the architecture of Moodle, what the main components of Moodle are, and where its data is stored. Moodle has a modern and intuitive user interface that takes a little bit of time to get used to. You will learn about its main navigation and where to find help if required. Dealing with files in web-based applications is not always straightforward. Therefore, you will learn how Moodle’s file management works and how to configure the recycle bin.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Understanding the Moodle architecture
- Navigating Moodle as an administrator
- File management in Moodle
- Recycle bin
By the end of this chapter, you will know more about how Moodle is structured internally, how to work with it as an admin, and how files are managed.
