Answer:

Yes, absolutely !  It doesn't matter what type of computer you are using - Windows, Mac, Linux, ... the most important thing is that you have an up-to-date browser.  We highly recommend Firefox and Chrome, and for Mac Safari is good.  Internet Explorer sometimes has issues with Moodle, and you can avoid these by using one of the recommended browsers above smile

You will be sent the course enrollment key by your course facilitator a few days before the course start date.  Please do not ask the Helpdesk to issue an enrollment key, only the course facilitator(s) can do this.

Question:

What computer do I need for these courses ?

(Last edited: Thursday, 2 March 2017, 3:00 PM)
Answer:

MoodleBites courses are designed to be highly-accessible by a variety of devices, including mobile devices.  However, as a general rule you will need to use a Desktop or Laptop computer.  It is of course possible to use Tablets and Smartphones to access Forums, view Grades, etc.  However, as these courses are for Teachers / Designers / Administrators / Developers you will need to use a full personal computer for many parts of the course. 


Question:

What if I run out of time ?

(Last edited: Monday, 6 February 2017, 12:26 PM)
Answer:
First, you should ensure you do not register and start a course unless you have enough time to complete it.  As a general rule, courses take 2-4 hours per week (depending on your existing level of experience).

It is possible to re-take a course later, and this can often be discounted by 50% (excluding MCCC).


Question:

When do I have to pay ?

(Last edited: Thursday, 2 March 2017, 3:05 PM)
Answer:

Payment is required for all courses before the start date.

We send course joining instructions a few days before the course start date so if you have not been invoiced and paid before this it can delay your start, or even mean you are moved to a later start date.  Plan ahead !  Our courses have limits on number of participants so register early to ensure you secure your place.


Question:

When does my course end ?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 9 June 2015, 1:21 PM)
Answer:

Most MoodleBites courses are 8 weeks in duration.

You will therefore have 7 (days) x 8 (weeks) which is 56 days.

Allowance is made for time zones, and all participants on an 8 week course will have access for 56 full days (to the end of the final day, regardless of your individual time zone).


Question:

Where do I get my course enrolment key ?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 9 June 2015, 1:18 PM)
Answer:

Once you have started a course, erolment keys are posted in the News Forum (and automatically emailed to you).

You cannot get an enrolment key for any course unless you are first registered and paid for the course.
