Exploring Courses, Users, and Roles
The objective of this chapter is to give you a quick rundown of the underlying foundation of Moodle: courses, users, and roles.
The three concepts are inherently intertwined, and any one of these cannot be used without the other two. We will deal with the basics of the three core elements and show how they work together.
Moodle courses are central to Moodle, as this is where learning takes place. Teachers upload their learning resources, create activities, assist in learning, grade work, monitor progress, and so on. Students, on the other hand, read, listen to, or watch learning resources, participate in activities, submit work, collaborate with others, and so on. You will be introduced to courses and how they are organized in categories. You will also learn about the key components of courses, namely activities and resources.
