The Moodle gradebook enables you to:
* Integrate all graded activities (including in-class assessments)
* Provide students immediate, private, and formative assessment
* Reduce time addressing student questions about grades
* Reuse the grading setup the next time you offer the course

You will receive support from a member of our E-Learning Team and can come and go when you can. Plan on allocating approximately 30 minutes.
Walk-ins are welcome. If you know you are interested, you can let us know with which course you want to build. The E-Learning Team will prepare some initial steps to get you going quickly. Bring your laptop if you like, but we will have technology available if you don't.
