The Inactive users alert block allows instructors to create alerts per course to determine if students have not accessed the course or important activities by specific dates. This is particularly helpful during the beginning of each semester to ensure that students are not falling behind on important materials or activities within your Moodle course.
Semester 2 2015 has seen the deprecation of Moodle's Media Collection 'Standard Mode'. The Media Collection is now fully integrated with theBox.
The Media Collection activity, collections and galleries are created within theBox and all files are uploaded and stored into theBox. Advantages include:
You may wish to test certain elements of your course such as assignments, quizzes or forums from a student perspective before you make the course available.
There are multiple ways to test from a student perspective:
- Add test students to your course.
- Switch role function
- Log in as function using dummy students (Instructors can only do this in sandpit courses)
On this page you can find information about creating media collections in Moodle. A media collection is a tool that allows you to add image, audio and video galleries to your course, and also make possible a collection-as-activity, which students can contribute to and be assessed on.

The Lightbox Gallery tool enables you to create an image gallery in your Moodle course. When you set up a lightbox gallery you can enable commenting on images.
Before you create your lightbox gallery, upload the relevant images to the legacy course files area. To simplify this process, zip your files before you upload them, then unzip them inside legacy course files.
