If you create a Turnitin Assignment in your Moodle course, Turnitin will compare all of the documents submitted by your students to its database of previously submitted assignments, documents in online paper mills, documents available on the Web, etc. Turnitin then issues an “originality score” that indicates how much of the language of each student […]
In Moodle, the "dock" is the upper-left corner of the screen. You can move one of the functional blocks to the dock ("dock the block") to make that block still available to you, while reducing the amount of space the block takes up on the screen: When a block is "docked,", it appears as a […]

Moodle allows you to create groups of students in a course – for example, students in a particular lab section (within a larger course).

I added a forum (or forums) to my Moodle course. How do I view all the forum posts by a particular student?
