Keith Landa, staff at SUNY Purchase (Purchase.edu) has a collection of quick tutorial videos on Vimeo that highlight a lot of good tips for using Moodle and making it look more aesthetically pleasing.
- Embedding Youtube videos using the Youtube filter
- Adding images to your course page
- Highlighting and truncating your course view (thereafter using the “jump to” drop down)
- and several great grade book videos (letter grades and weighted means)
Here’s the direct link to the TLT Channel on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/channels/97810.
And the video “Moodle – Banner Image for your course page”
This screencast tutorial shows the steps for inserting a banner image across the top of your Moodle course page, by editing the week 0 / topic 0 summary. Moodle version 1.9.7 was used for this tutorial, but the same steps apply to other versions of Moodle.
