I am trying to upload a large file to Moodle and it won't let me! What should I do?

Large files, such as video files, cannot be uploaded to Moodle directly.  Instead, they should be stored in Google Drive and then added to Moodle as a URL link or embedded within a Moodle Page.

Directions for uploading files to Google and linking to these files in your Moodle course can be found in these tutorials:

Uploading and Sharing a Video in Google Drive (can be adapted for other file types)

Embedding Videos and Other Content into Moodle

How can I allow a student to take a quiz at a different time than it is scheduled?

To add an override, follow these instructions:
  1. Enter the Moodle course site
  2. Click on the quiz you want to add an override for
  3. Click the gear menu in the upper-right corner and select User overrides
  4. Click Add user override
  5. In the Override user field, click on the arrow and select the student’s name from the list of course participants
  6. Beside Open the quiz select the desired alternate start time for the quiz
  7. Beside Close the quiz select the desired alternate end time for the quiz
User overrides can also be used to modify the following for individual students:
  • The length of time that students have to complete the quiz
  • The number of attempts a student is allowed to take a quiz
