From Managing a Course to Managing a Curriculum

Moodle has established itself as a powerful LMS, providing a plethora of functionalities dedicated to enhancing the learning experience. However, its full academic potential has not yet been fully tapped, as its focus has been mainly on course management. In an academic context, however, there is a need for integrating course management within curriculum management. Past attempts at this have been ungainly, relying on impractical core changes. With Panorama 1.0, a Moodle plugin designed as a curriculum manager, users and administrators are given an overview of all courses, competencies, certificates, programs and diplomas, be this in a private business context or an educational institution.

Migrating to Moodle 2.1: Sounds Simple but...

This presentation focuses on the upgrade from Moodle  1.9.8 to 2.1 that took place at École Polytechnique de Montréal during the summer of 2012. We plan on discussing the steps used in our migration process, the pros and the cons of upgrading to a later version, the right time to do it (if there is such a time...), the level of support and training offered to faculty and students, the preoccupations addressed during the upgrade and the lessons we learned for the next time. And all that in 15 minutes!

Integrating a Moodle Course into Facebook

Social Networks are more and more part of our daily life. Students use them to share information and contact friends. Facebook is the biggest social network to date, with 1 billion users (October 2012). Thinking of this, we decided to make a pilot in integrating a Moodle course into Facebook by using a closed group. Facebook offers many features so that teachers can share content to the students and also get in contact with them. This presentation will show how the pilot was done and also the results obtained through a survey with the participating students.
