Supporting Faculty: Course Development in Moodle2 (Royal Roads - Sponsor)

This session provides an overview of course development support available to faculty at RRU, including a review of the support strategy we developed for our recent transition to Moodle 2. We'll take a look at the various resources we provide for faculty:  

  • Moodle 2 resource sites
  • self-directed course
  • facilitated courses 

We’ll also take a look at some customizations we’ve made to support faculty in teaching and grading.  We have custom ‘team assignment’ functionality, a ‘course compile to pdf’ plugin, an ‘upload zip response files’ plugin and a ‘grade approval’ process.  We manage our student enrollment via a custom middleware solution between Moodle and our student system and also auto create course shells from the student system.

All of this requires the efforts of several units at Royal Roads including the Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies, IT Services and our program areas.  Join us to learn how this partnership between units results in a quality educational experience for our faculty and students.
