Respondus LockDown Resources
The COOL department has developed two course templates for Coastal faculty that may be used at your discretion within your courses. These templates have been added automatically to the Resources area of Moodle for all online faculty members. To request copies of these templates to be added into desired courses, faculty may use the Course Request tab in Moodle. Faculty should specify in the Course Title field of this form whether they desire the Basic Moodle Template (which includes the standard textual Moodle homepage) or the Advanced Moodle Template (which includes a new graphical layout for the Moodle homepage). You may request individual elements be copied over from either template, rather than the entire template, as well. Click here for more information on Course Templates!
Please refer to the Moodle Course Templates Manual and the videos below for more information on how these templates look and function!
