Key Words

Some of the terms used in this lesson and other areas in Moodle may be strange to you. The ITRC has created a glossary of terms that are either unique to Moodle or have unique Moodle definitions. To access the Moodle terms glossary, go to the Student Guide Moodle course. The Student Guide can be found by searching for it under "All courses" in the My courses block on the main Moodle page.
