About The Presentation

Title Opening Moodle through Custom Modules

Moodle out of the box provides the basic functionality to manage courses; however, our faculty do require some additional features to teach more effectively. Many courses include group projects that can be difficult to grade within our current version of Moodle. Our university is offering more and more online courses, and our faculty want a synchronous component to provide some live interaction with their students. Additionally, faculty want an easy way to enter final grades into our student information system.

In this presentation, we will describe how we met these needs by creating these Moodle modules:

  • Team Assignment (This assignment type leverages Moodle groups to allow students to more efficiently share and submit assignment files and enables faculty can grade groups of students collectively, in addition to grading students individually.
  • Web Conferencing Integration (We use Saba Centra as our web conferencing solution. There was no existing Moodle integration, so we developed one utlilizing their APIs.)
  • Moodle to SIS Grade Submission (This plugin allows instructors to submit grades to our student information system (SIS) directly from the Moodle grade book.)
