A course is the basic learning area on PalTuition where a teacher displays materials for their students.
A category is a group of things and has several meanings in PalTuition. It can be a grouping of courses by a certain criteria (Such as: Science; Junior School; Staff Area). It can be a group of questions, or a group of entries in a glossary.
Usually an activity is something that a student will do that interacts with other students and or the teacher. PalTuition has over a dozen activity types of tools for a teacher to use in a course.
Resources are items that a teacher can use to support learning, such as a file or a link. A standard PalTuition comes with 6 resource types that can be added to a course.
Typically, blocks are items which may be added to the left or right in a course's home page. There are dozens of different blocks that can be added to a course, or pages within a course.
Filters can be used to add links, insert multimedia players, and convert Mathematical expressions or emoticons into displayed images.
A section is an area within a course's homepage that hold activities and resources. Standard course section formats are topics, weeks, social and SCORM.
A role in PalTuition refers to what a user is allowed (or not) to do on a PalTuition site. Typical roles might include those of a student and teacher. A role is a collection of permissions that can be assigned to specific users in specific contexts. For example, when a user is enrolled in a course as a student.
PalTuition is designed to be very secure. However, a lot depends upon the webserver, the way PalTuition is setup and regular updates of the package by the PalTuition Administrator.
Highly unlikely if your PalTuition site has up-to- date security and the site administrator has not given away the keys. Anything is possible on any website, but PalTuition makes it difficult for nasty people to cause havoc.
PalTuition can be backed-up at any point. If a backup was made 5 minutes before you broke it, chances are it can be fixed easily.
While you do have some control of the security of a PalTuition site on a free or cheap web host, the question is: How much do you trust your web host?
Assuming you are a teacher and it is your course, yes. PalTuition Admin can do that for the entire site.
Yes, you can backup a PalTuition site or as a teacher you can back up your course and download it (if your role permits it). With appropriate permissions, you can restore your course and/or import parts of courses elsewhere on your site or beyond..
