Add and Manage Standalone Courses & Assignments in Moodle


Standalone instructors: Shows how to create a course in a Standalone environment.

When you first access your course within standalone Moodle, Bongo will launch. If this is the first activity in this course, you'll see the option to create a new course.

  • If you have never used Bongo in any of your courses, select the blank course option.
  • If you have used Bongo before and would like to use a class previously used in Bongo, click "Show Advanced Options" and then click the desired option. You will be given a list of your Bongo classes. Select the appropriate class and the class will be activated.


When creating a blank course, you'll see a pink checkbox to allow direct linking. Standalone courses do not use direct linking, so uncheck this Direct Linking box.
