MOOC course descriptions

The course description should include at least the following information:


  • briefly the content of the course
  • for whom the course is intended
  • how to join the course.

The student should have an idea of the course content without having to join the course.


In courses, it is recommended to use self-registration without a course key, and if you wish, you can allow access as a visitor.


If for some reason a course key/group key is used in the MOOC course, then the course description must include instructions on how to acquire these.


Adding a course description

The course description can be added by clicking on the course homepage -> Managing tools -> Edit course settings -> Course summary.
