I now have a Moodle learning site set up through Ninehub.com and chose a site name:
I chose a theme by clicking on Appearance → Themes → Theme Selector,
and a fully functional Moodle site was ready!
My next stop was browsing through the Moodle documentation for teachers, located here:
You can also experiment on the Moodle demonstration site, which is wiped clean and restored back to normal every hour on the hour: http://demo.moodle.org
I found that the next step was to Turn Editing On, and Add a New Course. This takes you to the course settings page where you can define yourself as an administrator and name your course.
In order to add or alter course activities, you have to Turn Editing On which is a button located at the top right. Then use the drop-down menus in the centre window to add a resource or activity:
- Add an activity such as a Forum, Chat, Wiki, Glossary, or Survey
- Add a resource such as a Text Page or Web Page
