Moodle Data Feeds Brief completed
The project brief has been completed for the MOODLE Data Feeds project.
Moodle is a VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) platform available to use at University of Edinburgh for courses that are taught completely online for distance students.
At present the courses are created and students are added via manual processes, these can be completed either via Moodle Interface or by import of a CSV file. This creates a staff overhead that will be difficult to sustain in the medium to long term if the service is to be expanded to accommodate new and successful Online Distance Learning (ODL) courses, as well as making it impossible to expand the use of the service for blended or on campus courses.
This project fits in with the University's strategy as it will improve the student experience and deliver excellence in education as it will be quicker and more seamless process for students to give them access to their online teaching environment. For ODL students, this is the equivalent to having access to the University campus itself.
It will also make more efficient use of available infrastructure and people resources by automating tasks that are time consuming and manual.
