Validation Application Developments

by

As Learner Progress Systems Manager one of the main aspects of my role is the management and development of ProMonitor and ProPortal within the College, including the management and set up of markbooks on the system.

From the outset of using ProMonitor it was decided that markbook set up would be centralised and tied into the validation quality process. To ensure quality and integrity of the import of qualification data a system was required that would not only import the correct course data but also select the validated units within the ProMonitor student groups in preparation for set up of the Student Group Types.

The Validation Application was developed in-house to enable this.

Advanced Moodle Slider Plugin

by
While updating the Moodle theme for version 3.1 in 2017, I began work on a brand new slider block for Moodle because the front page sliders found in most Moodle themes are inefficient and time consuming to operate. Currently, most sliders have to be updated by users with Administration access to Moodle and this role is rarely shared because of its potentially destructive nature.

Directed Study Plugin Set, BLC and Time Auditing

by

 

An exciting project of late is that of using Blended Learning Consortium (BLC) content (non-subject based tutorial resources) in conjunction with our already rich Directed Study programme. When using blended learning resources, it's important to clearly measure their usage and this can be hard to track if the resources haven't been designed to report (or collate) this type of data.

This year, we have shifted focus on the Moodle/ProMonitor project. Before synchronising the gradebook/markbook at Further Education level, we are exploring the use of data to support teaching and learning.

Following on from last year's Moodle/ProMonitor plugin pilot and with the help of Carol, I’ve designed an assignment submission template to help with the standardisation of coursework submissions, archival process and the retrieval of submissions for the GDPR.

Volunteering Hours Auditing System

by
One of my main projects of late has involved building a system to digitise our volunteering hours record system.
 
Currently, the entire system is paper based and as a result, calculations about the overall time spent by our students while helping the local community, needs to be counted manually. A very time consuming task. It also makes it hard to identify any trends, correlations and analysis of the impact of our students' work.

TTracker Plugin

by

The Moodle/ProMonitor plugin has been released this year in order to help collect assignment data through the Moodle/ProMonitor plugin. We're hoping to use the data to help develop the ProMonitor importing process. A few academic teams have joined us in a pilot study to test how the integration of Moodle and ProMonitor could work. Pilots can be very tricky and quite frustrating at times but valuable in that they help shape the direction of the College.
