To create a new course in Moodle, login to Moodle and from the home page, click All Courses.

Select the prefix of the course that you are adding.

Next, select the year of the course that you're adding.

On the next page, scroll to the bottom and click Add a new course.

On the Add a new course screen, add a Course full name and a Course short name.

I suggest the following formats--

  • Full name: [PREFIX] [COURSE NUMBER] [SECTION] [COURSE TITLE] [SEMESTER] [YEAR]
  • Full name example: ART 2602 HY Computer Graphics Spring 2020
  • Short name: [PREFIX] [COURSE NUMBER] [SECTION] [SEMESTER] [YEAR]
  • Short name example: ART 2602 HY SP 2020

Check to make sure that the course category is correct.

Make sure to set Course visibility to Show.

To avoid future issues with students being able to find your course, please make sure that your Course start date and Course end date is correct. These dates determine when and where your course will display within Moodle.

And finally, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save and display. You're done! That's it! You've created your first course shell!
