Hi Peter,

Here is bid so far. An email/letter of intent from one of your senior managers would be useful.

Do you have MS Lync? - If so I can give you a proper demo.

We are currently on Moodle 1.9.12 on LAMP with similar timescale for Moodle 2.x migration.

Give me a call on 01234 291300 if you want to discuss anything

Regards

       Roy

Roy,
I have had requests from some of our staff for the very system you describe. We run all the courses you mention in your email.
If you haven't sent off the bid yet an you want a 'Celtic Fringe' we would be happy to test-run mods etc as things develop (be careful however, we may well ask for it to be translated into Welsh at some point!).
We are on Moodle v1.13 and won't be going to Moodle 2 until 2013-14. We run a WIMP setup.

All the best,

Pete

Hi all,

I'm trying to put together a bid to JISC Advance for funding to develop our Moodle grade tracker into a resource that can be released to and used across the sector. I'm looking for colleges that are interested in partnering up on this bid so that we have a good cross section of moodle configs and set-ups and so that we can also get a good picture of user needs from the system.

Who would like to be involved? An outline of the proposed project is below and a screenshot of the current system attached. If anyone wants to discuss this further or wants more detail -  give me a call on 01234 291300.

JISC Project:

Effective tracking of BTEC and similar qualifications based on units and criteria poses problems for most UK colleges. Common approaches include the use of tracking spreadsheets held in shared drives - which limits the ability to establish cross-college standards and to share progress information with students; and the use of dedicated third-party systems which entail additional costs and mean that teachers and students have to use at least two systems to support the delivery and management of teaching and learning.

The majority of UK colleges now use Moodle as their virtual learning environment. Moodle provides good tools for the management of on-line assessment submission; however, the Grade Book functionality is limited and provides poor support for BTEC style qualifications.

Bedford College has addressed this issue by developing a sophisticated Moodle extension to track students' progress against criteria and units for BTEC qualifications. The system currently supports all levels of qualifications including Diplomas, Extended Diplomas, FDs, HNCs and HNDs. The system is currently being extended to accommodate other families of qualifications including C&G and VRQs.

In addition to providing teachers and students with a graphical overview of progress in completing qualifications, the system also provides predicted grades based on prior qualifications and on current progress in meeting criteria. Teachers are provided with tools that enable them to update progress, add comments at criteria level, customise qualifications and units, specify individualised programmes for students and view reports by class list, unit or student

The system has attracted substantial interest at both regional and national levels and a growing number of colleges are approaching Bedford College to explore the possibility of having the system tailored for use within their own institutions.

This project aims to work with a range of other colleges to:


*         Develop a modular plug-in version of the system for Moodle 1.9x and 2.x that can be adopted with minimum configuration by other colleges with suitable in-house expertise;



*         Extend the feature set and reporting capabilities of the system to meet the agreed requirements of participating colleges and ensure that a comprehensive range of the qualifications delivered across the sector is supported by the system;


*         Define a format so that qualifications and units transcribed for use in the system by any individual college can be exported for use by any other colleges using the system;



*         Establish a support service to provide a helpdesk service to colleges on the troubleshooting of any technical issues, deployment and use of the system (particularly for the benefit of colleges that do not have strong in-house Moodle support skills); ensure that there is a programme of on-going development for the system so that it continues to evolve to reflect the sector's changing needs and proved an on-line presence to support the sharing of transcribed qualifications, gather development requests and publish software updates.
