Moodle updates and service report
Moodle is getting a recharge for 2017/18. In addition to the usual refresh of all courses we will be upgrading to version 3.1. On the 27 June LTI went through some of the new features for editors and unveiled our new theme for the platform. We also shared the results of our Moodle audit and invited Moodle editors to try out our new features ‘my feedback’ and Moodle labs.
Moodle annual refresh
Each year Moodle courses are refreshed to remove old student data and make the courses available for the next cohort of students. Information on the annual refresh can be found here.
An overview of some of the new features that will be available on Moodle for 2017/18
User story: Moodle Quizzes
Quizzes within Moodle can offer insight into how students are performing in certain topics; such information could be used to establish a student’s understanding of a topic and a level of knowledge before starting a topic.
User story: Course Layout
“We chose to have a collapsible view as otherwise the page was far too long and meant that students would have to scroll through a lot of unnecessary information to find what they were looking for.”
(European Institute Charlie Fiddy MSC General Programme)
User story: Moodle is collaboration
“Moodle should be promoted in the future to make courses more collaborative.”
Support documentations for staff and students on how to use Turnitin in Moodle
Making more of Moodle
“A series of three blog posts musing on Moodle:
Part 1. The standardisation or baseline debate,
Part 2. Layout and design,
Part 3. Embedding Moodle activities in face to face teaching”
