Moodle/Totara Administrator

"I'm new to Moodle or Totara, and would like to learn more about administration of the software. I don't know where to start!" "Are there any authorised training centres for Moodle or Totara Administrator training in the UK?" "Can anyone help me in this regard?"

Yes, we can. Standard Moodle and Totara are easy to grasp 'out of the box' but day-to-day users of the platform sometimes require a helping hand or two. This course is designed to cover all the basics and many of the advanced Admin features of Moodle and Totara.  The course provides an introduction to access and configure settings within Moodle, in order to properly set up and operate the LMS and provide the required functionaility to individual learners, cohorts and managers. When you pass the certification you are given a code that lets you download your personalised certificate as a PDF.

At the course we will learn how to

  • Use the Moodle admin console.
  • Find and manage default settings that control the site functionality.

  • Find and manage Moodle settings that control the way courses are displayed.

  • Change the page components that are displayed to learners.

  • Create accounts and assign roles.

Who should attend?

Those who are responsible for day-to-day Moodle site administration and wanting to improve their understanding.

Course Content

  • Layout and page design options.
  • Backing up of sites and courses.

  • Settings that control global and local access to features and content.

  • Moodle tools for controlling the site look and feel.

  • Optimising the user experience using built-in settings.

  • Creating user accounts and assigning roles.


Although hard copy manuals and leave-behinds are provided, most of the learning will be 'hands on' using an online Moodle site. It is therefore essential that attendees are familiar with the basic concepts of website administration e.g. uploading files, creating links, etc.
