    New to moodle, need to put up a survey

    Ive just been told we are taking control of our Moodle box which has previously been outourced.

    I have never used the admin side of it before.

    We have been asked to find some survey plugin and set up a survey in Moodle.

    My questions are thus:

    Can anyone recommend a decent survey plugin?
    What access do I need to the moodle box? Admin rights within moodle/ FTP / ssh? etc
    How do I install plugins?

    Any help much appreciated.. cheers

    You'll need admin rights. There's no "backend" as such, simply go to the course you want to add the survbey to and click the "Turn Editing On" button. Follow the instructions in this video.

    Hi. With respect to beeswax, don't use the survey module that is already in Moodle as you can't alter the questions in any way. For what we think of as a survey you would need to download and install the nonstandard modules Questionnaire (or feedback) You can get these from Moodle.org: open-source community-based tools for learning and click on the downloads tab and then modules and plugins - search for Questionnaire. You will need to install it on your server - there are instructions on moodle for installing non standard modules (or I did a video here YouTube - Adding an Activity Module to Moodle (such as Quizport)) Then when installed, go to your course and turn on the editing and have a play adding your own choice of questions.
    (edit - I expect someone might come along and say that free online surveys such as surveymonkey are easier but better long term to have a built-in Moodle survey module. Just rmember the confusion -Moodle's "survey" = useless - use "questionnaire" or "feedback" instead)

    Top tip, in my opinion, use the Feedback activity.

    Think its included in 1.9 core?

    Feedback is not included in 1.9 core but will be initially in 2.0 (although hidden with the eye)

    We use the Questionnaire activity, much more flexible and displays more nicely than Feedback imo

    Don't worry about Moodle 2.0 yet if you're new to 1.9
