Create a New Moodle Course in your Staging Area

Home > Welcome to Moodle > Working with the Staging Area in Moodle > Create a New Moodle Course in your Staging Area

These instructions assume you have had a Course Staging Area created for you within our Moodle.

Login to Moodle and Navigate to your Staging Area.

From the right side of the Tertiary navigation area click the grey More button.

Select the Add a new course item.

You will need to set, at the very least:

  • Course Full name (displays at the top of the page)
  • Course Short name –  Please follow our course naming conventions (will appear in breadcrumbs, navigation, and must be unique!)
  • Course Start date and End dates (may result in course opening/closing to students/guests automatically and determine where courses appear listed on the Moodle Dashboard for users.)

You are otherwise welcome to explore course settings here in your Staging Area and can always return later to change courses settings in your Staging Area, here’s some of what’s available to you:

Scroll to the bottom of the page.

Click the Save and display button.
