Workflow, Course Quality and User Experience

Content Type: Case Study

Target Audience: Administrator / Developer 

Language: English

Description of Presentation

An overview of how Birmingham City University are progressing in terms of automatic provisioning of Moodle courses through web services, extending this into a simple workflow for course setup which combined with improvements in our theme / user interface are making a big difference to our students.

As far as possible everything we do is written as a plugin and released on Moodle.Org, much of what we demonstrate is already available for you to use should you want to replicate some of the things we are doing.

This presentation will include an overview of:

  • our workflow for automatically provisioning (creating) Moodle courses
  • auto enabling blocks and other common course elements
  • use / development of course checks block to avoid problems on newly created courses (available for download)
  • changes to UI made at request of students which have been incorporated into our theme (available for download) and give more consistency between courses
  • progress on recycle bin feature for Moodle (experimental, available on GIT)

This presentation maybe of interest to any Moodler interested in what others do or considering ways they can improve their own system.
