Moodle Help for Staff

Help Files

There are extensive Moodle help files for staff available online in our eLearning Resources Help Files.
Also, check out the General Semester Reminders (more expanded info than below) at the beginning of each semester to refresh your memory.

Staff Access

In order to see and have access to your paper/s in Moodle, you will need to speak to your administrator who will add your name to Jade via the web interface tool they have access to.

NOTE: If you require a meta-paper (two occurrences taught in the one Moodle space) please advise your administrator (including all relevant paper occurrence details) or complete the Meta-paper Request form BEFORE you begin development on your paper.

Paper Setup

Organise your course, how the sections are displayed and add any blocks that may be required (e.g. Panopto block if your lectures are being recorded). Change permissions or restrict access, address plagiarism by enabling Turnitin etc. (See QuickFind below)


Import content from a previous year ( also through Moodle Help  (in the red banner in Moodle)  > Staff Training Modules > Moodle User Course > Importing Moodle Material), Add Resources and Activities for students to view, participate or interact in.

Student Access

The last thing to do once your paper is set up is to make the paper available to students (Settings - Paper administration - Edit settings) and select "Show" from the Visibility drop down. This is often forgotten as staff have access and forget that it needs to be turned on for students.

Guest Access

If you have a guest visitor/lecturer that needs access to your paper (and they won't have an HR contract) see Moodle Access for Guest Lecturers for the process to get them access.


Moodle has provided a list of Frequently Asked Moodle Questions

Moodle Map (QuickFind)

You will find links to the majority of the information required (as above) to create and teach your paper in the Moodle Map. The URL is or it can be found by going to My Courses (in the red banner in Moodle) > Moodle 1: Start Here > Moodle Map (QuickFind).
