Selecting a new Moodle Course Shell
In Moodle, new e-courses are designed using templates, which are commonly called "shells". Each new Moodle course you create will require its own shell, whether based on a previous course shell or on a pre-made template.

Select Your Moodle Course Shell Type
When you fill out the form to request a new Moodle shell, you must select from one of these types of course shells:
Blank Shell - A blank shell is just a blank page upon which you build your Moodle course from scratch. (A Discussion Forum is the only activity or resource that exists in a blank shell.)
Copy of an Existing Moodle Course - Select this if you have an existing course which contains content and formatting you wish to re-use.
Long Template - A Long Template includes standard content as a foundation for your course. Carefully formatted sample information provided has been carefully assembled to address issues common to distributed learning. The long template includes general information as well as formatted modules for 10 units of instruction however units can be added or removed as required.
Short Template - A Short Template includes the same general information as the long template, but does not provide any pre-formatted instructional units.
