Anatomy Illustrated: Moodle as Gallery Space

Art and Design students meet in one room to discuss the inner workings of the human body—the etymology of the words to describe it, its physiological processes, its complex communication systems, the conditions that befall it, and what the heck that has to do with their art and design practice. They render designs, installations and illustrations that invite in a wide audience and broaden meaning analogy toward a rich understanding of the body and the application of concepts to other fields.  Their conceptual use of a gallery space educates viewers not only about the workings of the body but inside the experience of a condition or illness—thus toward a position of deeper empathy.  So can Moodle be that special gallery space?

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!

Using Virtual Patients in Health Professions Education at UBC

Given the resource and logistical challenges of having health professional students interact with patients of underserved populations, the virtual patient format was chosen to enhance opportunities for teaching and learning in this important clinical area. Students in all UBC Health Professional programs across all distributed sites will use the virtual cases to better identify, explore and address the social determinants of health and the impact on the well-being of patients, families and communities.

Automatic evaluation of Excel and Word productions in Moodle

On entry to the university, there are students with a large heterogeneity in the levels of technological and information skills. The CERTITUDE project proposes to measure skills for these two areas.

The project is innovative in many ways. It is based on an assessment that several complementary dimensions, based on the profile of skills developed by Magellan and REPTIC, with significant production. For this aspect, the project focuses on issues based on a formal context augmented by multimedia, simulations, in situ production in Word and Excel tools and finally treasure hunts.

Methodology, tools and new Moodle question types developed under this project will be presented.

Design challenges moving to Moodle 2.2

In 2012, Athabasca University began the move to Moodle 2.2 with two types of pilot projects. This session describes some of the challenges that emerged during the design pilot and first offering of a new graduate course that was developed in Moodle 2.2. We offer a retrospective view of both the design process and the product that was finally produced. Issues related to technical support and server access, functionality of modules to implement learning activities, the collaborative methodology used for development, and the impact of multiple stakeholders will be reviewed. Lessons learned will be offered.

Large Scale Course, Enrollment & Content Management

In a standard semester, the University of Alberta has more than 3500 course sections in moodle serving more than 130,000 enrollment seats. With complex variations in enrollment requirements and large numbers of fluid enrollments, structured automation is the only way to efficiently manage this information.

Our team has developed moodle plugins and supporting middleware for self serve course creation, enrollment management and content migration. These webservice plugins make use of built-in moodle libraries for the backup/restore of content, cohorts for enrollments, and categories the institutional hierarchy. We would like to share in detail how our processes are managed, and discuss how other institutions are implementing similar processes.

Beyond Education: Project Collaboration with Moodle

Although Moodle is traditionally used to connect dispersed learners, it can also support dispersed project teams and stakeholder groups by providing a common space for discussion, resource sharing, check-ins, and decision making. This presentation will help broaden your understanding of what Moodle can do and help you to incorporate Moodle into projects in non-traditional ways. You don’t have to be an expert; you just have to be creative! Participants will learn how Moodle is being used beyond “education” through case examples from the career development and social services sector, and will learn how to introduce Moodle as a collaboration tool.

Category Level Administration Plugin

At the University of Alberta, we have over 40,000 users accessing the centrally supported learning management system (LMS). Our University has recently finished transitioning from Blackboard Vista to Moodle. In the transition process we have identified the need to replace the distributed administration model that Blackboard Vista provided. Our solution has evolved into one that provides a hierarchical administrative plug-in based on course categories. This gives faculty and/or departmental administrators the ability to customize settings, plug-ins and blocks at their respective category level.

Online Learning Solutions – Higher Education

This presentation focuses on the challenges in online higher education e.g. postgraduate courses in accounting and finance.  There are a variety of constraints that affect the way blended courses are developed, which can compromise their quality. The solutions to the following challenges will be discussed with a demonstration of a couple of postgraduate subjects designed in Moodle 2.2.5:

  • Re-designing the course from scratch
  • Lack of consistency between online and face-to-face approaches.
  • Direct conversion of face-to-face lectures into online lectures.
  • First teacher contact should be Face-to-Face/Real-Time.
  • Merging e-learning with LinkedIn.

Using Moodle for Course Evaluations

Developed in-house, “Evaldens” is the name of the module used to handle teacher evaluations at École Polytechnique. The “Evaldens” module is wholly integrated into the Moodle platform, allowing course evaluations to be completed almost entirely online. During our presentation, we will cover the following main topics: how the module was developed while taking into account the existing paper based procedure, how the module was implemented and subsequently tested; what impact the new system had on students, teaching staff and advisors; and the pros and the cons of an online system. We will also discuss the recent upgrade of the “Evaldens” module, as well as our next steps in the deployment process.
