At the end of each semester, there are some things that you need to attend to.

Grades

Make sure that you transfer each student's final grade to myTRU.


Backups

It is a good idea to, at minimum, download and keep a copy of your Moodle grade book.

Export an Excel spreadsheet

From the Grader report, click the dropdown and choose 'Excel spreadsheet' under the 'Export' section.

Closing your Course

Once you have backed up your data, the easiest way to remove your students' access to your course is to hide your course.

Hide your Course

In your administration block, click 'Edit Settings'.
