Online Grading to Make Teaching Life Easier with Moodle

Online Grading to Make Teaching Life Easier with Moodle | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it
As Moodle continues to develop as a learning platform, new features emerge. This month, the latest release has delivered multiple improvements to the Gradebook tool, taking from quantative and qualitative research from teachers across the globe. A new Grade history report allows teachers and managers to see which grades have been changed, when and by whom, while a handy Single view makes it simple to focus on one column or row of the gradebook.

While there have been a range of aggregation strategies available to teachers in Gradebook, a new natural weighting method in the latest release allows for the sum of all grade values, scaled by weight. Extra credit, excluded and hidden grades are all supported.

Moodle plugins: Slideshow

Moodle plugins: Slideshow | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

This is a new block which creates a slideshow in the header of a site or course page.  It uses jquery/cycle to handle the image transitions. Jquery is also used to manipulate the DOM to reposition the block's node into the heading div of the page. 

 

Since this is dependent on using moodle's built in jquery functions, it is not available for versions prior to 2.5.

Update: This block will work with the Clean theme on Moodle version 2.5.2 where MDL-41516 has been fixed.

7 Outstanding Moodle 2.8 Features That You Will Love

7 Outstanding Moodle 2.8 Features That You Will Love | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

Just by looking the number of features and improvements that are introduced in the latest addition, one can quickly get a grasp on how much Moodle focuses on making the open source LMS so much loved by the users.

Features for all Moodle 2.8 users
These features are accessible by all users of Moodle 2.8, including administrators, educators, and students:

A new User Menu
Now you can access the pages you want or need quickly and efficiently. The settings are customizable, allowing you to set things up to suit your personal needs appropriately.


Email to save privately
This feature allows the user to email documents and other important correspondence with attachment directly to themselves, which in turn automatically saves the correspondence and attachment in a private file for future use.

 

Auto-save feature for text
Anything you are working on, be it a fairly minor assignment or important article or thesis Moodle’s auto-save feature allows you to securely store any content you have written, keeping it safe until you are ready to edit or publish it.


‘Like’ rating ability
Simply put, this allows you to share what you choose with social media sites you use by taking all of the benefits of social media and bringing them together with Moodle in harmonious integration.


Improved Gradebook Features
The following features have been designed for the use of educators for the most part, but are also beneficial to some of the duties of the administrator:

All-new Grade History Report feature

The following features have been designed for the use of educators for the most part, but are also beneficial to some of the duties of the administrator:

All-new Grade History Report feature
This will make keeping track of each individual user’s grade history as well as the tracking of specified markers as easy as a click or two of the mouse.


Single-view feature
This allows you to make changes to user information or other specifics on a fast and efficient basis; there is no need clicking back and forth to get the job done.


Natural Weight Dispersment
This convenient feature handles everything from day-to-day assignment grades to hidden and excluded grades to grades given for extra-credit assignments, bringing them all together into on convenient balancing method.


Grader Report with improved features
The Gradebook and Grader Report features are now easily accessible on all devices, navigable through the simple use of scrolling technology. You can conduct any editing you need to right on the device as well, and it can now be done without repetitive loading and re-loading.

Enhancements to the Moodle Forum

Moodle’s Forum is a popular resource rich with information and support. Now you are able to reply or comment on Moodle forum posts via email interface, and you can include attachments, a feature which was not available on the forum before. Thread navigation has also been greatly simplified, making it so much easier to find specific statements within threads which are needed or desired. Now users are also able to subscribe to forums which are topic specific, enabling them to narrow their applicable focus appropriately.

Brand new Assignment, Choice, and Quiz Options

Now users are able to select more than one Choice option at a time, allowing students to be challenged appropriately. Moodle has improved the edit and completion settings in Quiz mode enabling easier, faster use for the administrator and teacher, and they have also provided educators with the ability to attach assignment specific files to different user accounts as needed. All of this can be taken care of in the ‘Assignment’ portion of the settings, and has proven to be a wonderful additional feature, as it enables the educator to not only expand on the individual teaching they are focusing on from person to person, but they are also able to conveniently add additional resources and other documents to the student’s file as needed on a hassle-free basis.

Moodle 2.8 Reporting & Analytics features

Now you can keep track of upcoming events and appointments with detailed logging features. These also make the grade tracking process incredible simple in many ways by organizing and averaging as specified and needed. You can also take advantage of upcoming events by subscribing to new ones with this feature as well. No more missing out on those you really want to participate in.

‘Cohorts’ tracking feature

Now administrators and educators alike are able to track all involved cohorts and any applicable data as needed. The need to search, sort, and scroll is minimized greatly as all Moodle 2.8 participants are as close as your mouse or touchscreen. You have the ability to create or upload new cohorts, and you now have a screen dedicated to the display of and easy access to your cohorts.

Theme settings and clear individual user profiles

Now you have access to the information which applies to you or the students you teach right on their personal Moodle profile. There are individual settings and themes which allow for personalization, adding a bit of fun to the whole process. Communicating with one another and seeing to it that materials are provided and studies completed, as well as all grading and tracking, are made easier than ever with the new Moodle 2.8.

If you have been considering integrating Moodle 2.8 into your learning and teaching dynamic you are thinking about a wonderful product that will make the entire education process and all of its aspects and participants easier to deal with. Moodle will organize, assign, attach, assist, and aide administration in a way the world has never known. Take advantage of all the wonderful new features available with Moodle 2.8 and begin making learning and teaching fun and easy for all!
