Adding Notes about Your Learners

Notes are a useful tool that instructors can use to keep memos on learners' performance, illness, or achievements. You can also use notes to share information about learners with the Moodle instructors of other courses. Notes are not visible to learners; they are visible only to you, and you have the control to make your note available to other instructors.

Creating notes

You can access the Notes page and create notes anywhere that you can click a learner profile or from the Participants link on the front course page. To create a note, take these steps:

  1. Click the Participants link in the People block on your course front page.
  2. Select the check box next to the desired learner.
  3. From the With Selected Users drop-down list, select Add a New Note.

    You can also find the Notes section on an individual student profile, Notes tab. See Figure 8-8.

    Moodle takes you to a new page with the learner's name, a text box for your note, and a drop-down list on the right of the note to select who gets to view the note.
