JISC RSC > City College Plymouth: Setting the standard with Moodle Medals

JISC RSC > City College Plymouth: Setting the standard with Moodle Medals | mOOdle_ation[s] |

The TEL IT team at City College Plymouth have successfully developed a set of standards for courses within their Moodle VLE (virtual learning environment).  Using a Bronze, Silver and Gold award-based model they have successfully enhanced the quality of materials, resources and content of courses.

The quality framework provided through Moodle Medals is helping teaching staff to work towards a much more structured approach to their courses, which provides students with a much better learning platform and repository of interactive resources.


The medals have made teaching staff more interested in developing their courses to a minimum standard and beyond.  This in part has been encouraged due to introducing a competitive aspect to the medals.  This means that staff are more involved and interested in gaining awards.  In addition, Adam Harvey, Learning Technology Managerthe introduction of the medals has set a benchmark for this department, which is attractive for senior management teams

Students are getting much more out of the VLE and their courses through Moodle, especially if their courses have gained a silver rating, which contains more interactive resources and materials.  It has provided a more immersive environment and one in which students can be more engaged with.

As a direct result of the introduction of Moodle Medals, some teaching staff now deliver all their teaching exclusively through Moodle, an unexpected outcome for the TEL IT team.

Τα Badges (μετάλλια ή διακρίσεις) είναι μια από τις νέες δυνατότητες της έκδοσης 2.5 και είναι συμβατά με τα Mozilla Open Badges.

Η χρήση τους περιγράφεται αναλυτικά (σε απλά Ελληνικά...) στην ενότητα "Βαθμοί & Μετάλλια" του μαθήματος "Moodle for Administrators and Course Creators" στο

Moodle's Open Badges plugin. Still in alpha and planned for a Moodle 2.5 release (I think).


Have managed to have a play with it on a friends install and it is AWESOME.


See the other Scoopit entry for details on the documentation.

I am finishing a class Games In Learning and Assessment through UW-Stout. The class was a game, the player had to earn both quest and reward badges. It was created in Badgestack. Very cool way to learn.

A block to manage all your badges!


While this block hasn't yet been released, it is a great preview of what's to come when badges can be pulled directly into Moodle and displayed or can be customized by and displayed on a specific site.


Some great work here by Ian Checkland. Read his other posts somewhere else on this Scoopit
