Moodle Help and Tutorials

Welcome to Moodle! This guide has how to documents, information, and Moodle help.

Faculty can upload instructional videos, audio, and images they create to the Ensemble streaming server at https://ensemble.viterbo.edu/viterbo instead of uploading files directly into Moodle.  This allows large media files to be streamed to students, enabling them to access content more quickly and without needing a robust internet connection.  Recorded Powerpoints, video files of many types, audio files, and images galleries can be uploaded and managed by faculty.

Please do not upload content that you have not created.  To stream institutionally-owned videos, please visit the Online Conversion to Digital Format Request form.  If you have questions, email the reference desk at reference@viterbo.edu.
