Sisu and TUNI Moodle

I need many Moodle courses to one Sisu implementation?

You can create only one TUNI Moodle course for one Sisu implementation in Sisu. If you need more TUNI Moodle courses, you can create additional courses manually to "Other" category. Note that you must invite students to these courses with enrolment key or add students manually.

Instructions: Sisu and TUNI Moodle
https://moodle.tuni.fi/mod/book/view.php?id=230&chapterid=5095

Why there are not any students in my Moodle course?

Students enrolled to Sisu implementation will be added to TUNI Moodle course if the TUNI Moodle course has been created in Sisu and teacher has confirmed the enrolments in Sisu. If "enrolment period with direct confirmation" setting is used in Sisu implementation, students will be added automatically to TUNI Moodle course.

If needed, students can be added manually or by enrolment key directly to TUNI Moodle course (e.g. external students without TUNI account).

Instructions: Sisu and TUNI Moodle
https://moodle.tuni.fi/mod/book/view.php?id=230&chapterid=5095

Why there are students in my Moodle course who are not enrolled in Sisu implentation?

If there are unknown students in Moodle course who have not enrolled in Sisu check the following first:

Have you or other teacher in the course activated enrolment key in Moodle course? By default enrolment key is not activated in new Moodle courses. 

Have you or other teacher in the course manually added students to Moodle course?

20.10.2020: Possible Sisu-Moodle data transfer issue if student cancels enrolment and immediately leaves from implementation. Fix is coming. Read more here.

Sisu - TUNI Moodle: course life cycle

Create new TUNI Moodle course for Sisu implementation

  • Login to Sisu: https://tuni.fi/sisu
  • Select implementation from Sisu
  • Implementation information -tab > Classification
  • Edit
Classification

  • Learning management system: Order for this implementation > Add > Select "TUNI Moodle"
  • Save
Learning management system: order for this

After "TUNI Moodle" classification has been added, new TUNI Moodle course will be created to "Course implementations - TAU" category if all the following conditions are matched:

  • Implementation end date is in the future in Sisu (implementation is ongoing or has not started yet)
  • Implementation has at least one responsible teacher or teacher in Sisu
  • Implementation language is set in Sisu
  • Implementation name and name specifier are set in the same language as implementation language in Sisu
  • Implementation is connected to course that has course code in Sisu

After the TUNI Moodle course has been created, all responsible teachers and teachers will also get an email notification about the new TUNI Moodle course.

All responsible teachers and teachers will be added automatically as teachers to the new TUNI Moodle course.

TUNI Moodle course name and link to the course are visible in Sisu implementation information: Description > Learning environments

Learning environments

By default, new Moodle course is hidden from students. Remember to publish Moodle course to students before the course begins.

You can create one TUNI Moodle course for one Sisu implementation in Sisu. If you need more TUNI Moodle courses, you can create additional courses manually to "Other" category. Note that you must invite students to these courses with enrolment key or add students manually.

Copy content from old course to the new course

If needed, you can copy content from your old existing TUNI Moodle course to the new empty TUNI Moodle course: Copy course (import)

Add teachers 

If you add more responsible teachers or teachers in Sisu to the implementation, these users will be added automatically to TUNI Moodle course.

Remove teachers

If you remove responsible teachers or teachers in Sisu from the implementation, these users will not be removed from TUNI Moodle course or user roles will not be changed. This logic ensures that it's also possible to add teachers to TUNI Moodle courses directly from TUNI Moodle without Sisu (e.g. external users, not member of the Tampere University)

If teacher has been added to TUNI Moodle course from Sisu and afterwards teacher needs to be removed: Remove teacher first from Sisu implementation and then remove the teacher from TUNI Moodle course area or change role to student or non-editing teacher.

    Add students

    Students enrolled to Sisu implementation will be added to TUNI Moodle course if the TUNI Moodle course has been created in Sisu and teacher has confirmed the enrolments in Sisu. If "enrolment period with direct confirmation" setting is used in Sisu implementation, students will be added automatically to TUNI Moodle course.

    If needed, students can be added manually or by enrolment key directly to TUNI Moodle course (e.g. external students without TUNI account).

    Remove students 

    If student or teacher cancels student's enrolment in Sisu, the student will be automatically removed from TUNI Moodle course. Removing student directly from TUNI Moodle course will not work if the student has enrolled to the implentation in Sisu. Enrolments must be cancelled in Sisu.

    Delete course

    If TUNI Moodle course created from Sisu is not needed after all:

    • Remove "TUNI Moodle" classification from Sisu implementation
    • Remove link to "TUNI Moodle" course from Sisu implementation information
    • Delete course from TUNI Moodle

    5.3. Copy course (import)

    Copy contents from one course to another within TUNI Moodle

    You can copy content from your old course to a new empty course.

    • Go to your empty Moodle course
    • Select from top menu > Import
    Import content

    • Find your old course to import content from > Select the course > Continue
    Import data from course

    • Next
    • Uncheck News forum (already in the new course) and other content you don't need
    • Next
    • Import
    • Wait until the import is done, importing a large course can take several minutes

    Additional notes:

    • If the new course contains Echo360 or Panopto activities (linked videos) setup a new link between the activity and video by clicking the activity
    • All other activities in the new course are copies from the old course, so you may need to edit e.g. assignment dates, links to internal course materials and so on
    • Note that course settings are not copied from the old course to the new one, so you may need to change them manually. Important settings to check: participants, enrollment key, course format, number of sections, course name

    Copy course area from old Moodle to new TUNI Moodle

    • Go to old Moodle (e.g. to TUT Moodle, UTA Moodle or TAMK Tabula Moodle) and go to your course
    • Take backup from your course:  Settings-block >Course administration > Backup
    • Include to the backup only the following: activities and resources, blocks, question bank
    • Do not include enrolled users!
    • Save the backup file temporarily into your computer
    • Delete the backup file from Moodle
    • Go to new TUNI Moodle
    • Create new empty course
    • Restore from backup: Go to the empty course you created > Select menu from upper right corner > Restore
    • Select from backup destination: Restore into this course > Merge the backup course into this course
      (NOTE! Do NOT select "Delete the contents of this course and then restore", as it will delete self-registration feature from the course and you will have to add it back manually from Enrolment methods -page.)

    5.4. Set enrolment key

    Course enrolment key is not needed if TUNI Moodle course has been created in Sisu (Tampere University) or Peppi (TAMK) and students are enrolled to the implementation in Sisu or Peppi:

    If TUNI Moodle course has been created manually to "Other" category:

    Set enrolment key

    • Managing tools > Set enrolment key


    • Enrolment key can be e.g. just a single word. You do not have to use numbers or special characters.
    • After you have set the enrolment key, you can check what the key is by clicking: Managing tools > Check enrolment key
    • Then you can publish the course area (show course) and share the enrolment key and URL to the course area, so students can enrol in course.

    Delete enrolment key

    • Managing tools > Check enrolment key
    • Set empty enrolment key. If enrolment key is empty, users can't enrol in course area by themselves. If you want allow all TUNI Moodle users to enroll your course area without enrolment key, check instructions "Allow enrolment without key".

    5.5. Allow enrolment without key

    Self-enrolment without enrolment key is not needed if TUNI Moodle course has been created in Sisu (Tampere University) or Peppi (TAMK) and students are enrolled to the implementation in Sisu or Peppi:

    If TUNI Moodle course has been created manually to "Other" category:

    Enable self-enrolment without enrolment key

    • Go to your course > Select from top menu > More


    • Select: Users > Enrolment methods


    • Enable self-enrolment (Student) > Click closed eye icon
    • If you need more advanced options > Click cog wheel icon next to eye icon


    Now all TUNI Moodle users can enrol in course without enrolment key.






    5.6. Publish / hide course

    By default, course is visible only to the teachers specified in the course's enrolled users list. Students can't access the course until you publish the course.

    Publish course from managing  tools: Show course

    Show course

    When the course is published (visible to students) the button is green. 

    You can hide the course from the managing tools: Hide course

    Hide course

    It's important to hide the course after course has ended and students no longer need to access the course materials. By hiding the course old courses will not clutter students course lists. Hidden course and all student materials are still visible for all teachers in the course.

    5.7. Delete course

    For now, it's recommended that student assignments and other materials should be preserved one year after the assessment. New Tampere universities records management policy in under work and will be published during 2020, so these instructions will be updated later.

    Teacher should delete courses with student data from Moodle if one year has been passed since the course has been actively used. For example it is over one year since the last assignment has been submitted or assessed. 

    If there are more than one teacher in the Moodle course, please verify from other teachers that the course can be deleted. 

    Move course to trashbin

    Go to the course area > Select from Managing tools >Move course to trashbin 

    Move course to trashbin

    After the course has been moved to trashbin it will be available 30 days in trashbin and after that the course will be permanently deleted.

    When a course is moved to trashbin the course is also automatically hidden from students. In addition, course will be hidden from teachers My courses -listing. If needed, teachers in the course can still access the course from My courses -listing > Show  settings > Trashbin/to be deleted courses

    If you accidentally moved a course to the trashbin, contact IT Helpdesk.

    Copy course contents from course to be deleted to another course
