enCore v.4 User's Guide

This guide is intended for teachers, students, and other people using enCore, an online learning environment developed from MOO technology (see More on MOOs).

MOOs previously were strictly text-based and used commands for doing anything; enCore has brought this technology into the modern "point-and-click" mode current computer-users are comfortable with. Hence, you will find guidance for both ways to do things in enCore:

Help for point-and-click operation of enCore
Help for command-line operation of enCore

You may click on any of the links below to jump to different sections that cover specific aspects of using enCore, or you drop down menus above. Please note that some enCore functions are restricted to teachers or wizards only and will be marked as such.
