How do I use Moodle for Regular Bilkent Courses? (Instructors)

Bilkent Courses Online is for regular departmental courses that can be opened automatically through AIRS.

You can follow the short descriptions below OR follow the step by step Guides by David Davenport

To open a new Moodle course :
  1. Go to the AIRS system. (You need to be a Bilkent Instructor.)
  2. Find the course for which you want to open a corresponding Moodle course.
  3. Click on the "Moodle" button.
  4. Then click on the "Create Moodle Course" button.
  5. Your course is automatically created. You can reach your course by clicking on the "Go to Moodle Site" button.
  6. The course is "unavailable to students" by default. You need to go to the "Administration" block of your course, click on "Settings" and change the "Availability" part as "This course is available to students".
  7. Now, your students can access your Moodle course through STARS. They don't need to create accounts and you don't need to enroll them. All will be handled automatically when they enter your Moodle course through STARS.
