Course Design: Year 7 English (Non fiction)

Course Design: Year 7 English (Non fiction) | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Playing about with new course design for Moodle for English department. The CADR is part of the 5 form lesson structure.

 

What you see is essentially 3 separate Moodle labels. Rather than make up a simple title, I have added a heading and table. 

 

Took ages to get the table design right. To create the box appearance I had to make extra "blank" columns between each section. The Moodle text editor can be quite trying!

 

Of course how good this looks depends on individual users resolutions and devices. 

 

There is a summary of the task in the text and students click on the icon to see the detail. This could be an image (Saved PowerPoint file as PNG) or link to a Moodle activity etc.

 

The icon set are meant to reflect some form of Blooms-ish taxonomy. The full set are here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7336564/MOODLE/iconstogether.png

 

The course layout is "One Topic" and all the key files are on a "Teachers Only" tab which is hidden from students. One topic and Grid format are my personal favourites.
