Create a DC motor connection at port 1.

dcm = dcmotor(shield,1);

Change the speed to 0.2, start the DC motor, and display the motor object.

dcm.Speed = 0.2;
start(dcm);
dcm
dcm = 
  dcmotorv2 with properties:

    MotorNumber: 1 (M1)
          Speed: 0.20           
      IsRunning: 1              

Stop the motor, and display the object.
