1.2 Do I really have to put all this on Moodle?

If you use the same set up as this example document then all the outputs will be collected together into a single folder. We recommend that you:

  • Zip up the folder and upload it to Moodle as a file
  • Select Add a resource -> File. Give the resource a name (e.g. lecture notes 1).
  • Add the zip file. Right click on the zip file, a window appears, click on unzip and wait until complete.
  • Right click on the zip again and click on delete. You will have a folder remaining.
  • Left click on the folder to open it.
  • Find the main file index.html and right click on this, a window appears, click on Set main file.
  • Change any other settings you wish in the resource and then save.

When you click on this resource you will see the HTML book version of the notes. This is technically accessible, searchable and usable on a mobile device. In the menu at the top there is a download button, from here a student can access any of the other formats. This is as close as we can get to replicating the Blackboard Ally student experience of being able to transform accessible resources to other formats.
