Moodle Everywhere

As part of the University’s Transforming Teaching Programme, the University’s Executive Board established a minimum threshold for engagement with Moodle which all modules must meet. The expectation is that all modules now use Moodle to support their delivery and that they all feature the items in the table on that Moodle page.

Moodle Mandate Document on University website

This is intended to be a reasonable minimum and by no means intended to be limiting. Many modules will contain a good deal more material than this.

 Essential informationSuggestion (optional)Check
Contact details for all module teachersIn top (general) section as a label
Copy of the Module outline/handbookInclude as file in top (general) section, or link to file in a generic module or elsewhere  Uploading files
Class timetable (but not individual timetables at this stage)Include file, or as part of file such as module handbook, or (for SATURN-listed modules) use Timetable Sync block to import timetable from Syllabus+ (Currently, this does not work for UNNC modules)
Details of coursework assignments including submission datesAssignments created in Moodle (can be offline assignments or submissions of files etc.) can be given deadlines which show in student calendars. This applies to both Turnitin Assignments and Moodle Assignments.
Marking criteria for assignmentsUse a label to create an Assessment Information heading in the top section, or designate one section of the page for information and assignment dropboxes
Reading/resource list taking advantage of the investment in Talis Aspire software linking to e-resources wherever possibleSet up your reading list in Talis Aspire and use the Module Resources block to automatically link (for SATURN-listed modules only), or add the link as part of your content if not a SATURN module

Relevant lecture slides/notes/materials used in the classroom

NOTE: in order to facilitate students with disabilities, all relevant materials should be made available on Moodle two days in advance of the lecture

Add as resources such as Files, Folders or convert to Pages, Books, Xerte Online Toolkits etc.

Upload a draft, and if changes are made at the last minute, upload the edited version afterwards

Previous examination papers or sample papers where exam papers are not made publically available

May be uploaded documents, links to files elsewhere, or link to University past papers system. May be in top section or a designated assessment section
Feedback on at least the last examination/coursework performanceUpload as a document. May be in top section or designated Feedback section, perhaps at the bottom of the page
Any documentation on the review of the moduleUpload as document or link.

In many cases much of the material in this list will be included in the module outline or handbook which will appear in the module (e.g., module timetable) or be made available in a generic Moodle module for the relevant School (e.g. marking criteria). The key will be to ensure that students are aware of this and can access the links easily online.
