Moodle 3: Blocks: CPS: Team Teach Request

Team Teaching allows two or more instructors to combine their courses into one Moodle course. Content can be created and managed by all instructors. Each instructor is still responsible for the grading of their own students, which are enrolled into the course as separate section groups.

PLEASE NOTE: This process should be completed before content is added to either of the courses.

To Initiate a Team Teach Moodle Course:

Note:  One instructor in the team needs to initiate the course creation process.

1. Log into Moodle.

2. Click the Team Teach Requests link in the Course Preferences block on the Home level of Moodle.
