A number of recommendations emerged from the E-Learning Reports developed in 2013 across the Bartlett, Engineering and Maths and Physical Sciences (BEAMS) departments. Here’s what you asked for and what the Digital Education Advisor for the faculty arranged in response, in collaboration with staff from across the Information Services Division.
You wanted to import module timetable information from the Common Timetable into Moodle.
We developed a Common Timetable iCal feed to import module timetables for displaying in the Moodle calendar.
You wanted a simplified quiz creation process with guidelines and checklists for importing questions.
We purchased the Moodle Word Table format plugin to help staff quickly develop quizzes with simple question types (not calculated or drag and drop) in Word, including those with images and LaTeX.
You wanted us to run staff workshops and demos to increase knowledge of e-learning tools & their potential use.
We ran workshops across the faculties and in individual departments catered to the needs of the departments.
You wanted to simplify the process for exporting grades out of Moodle and into Portico.
We imported the UCL student number into Moodle and added this column to the Moodle Gradebook export, simplifying the uploading of grades from Moodle into Portico. A video explaining how to move grades from Moodle to Portico is now available on the UCL E-Learning Wiki – a space for staff to share their e-learning practice:
