We’ll help you to update your Moodle pages!

The end of term is fast approaching, marking is nearly complete and the new academic year is comfortably in the distance, the other side of a long and (hopefully) hot summer. Now is the ideal time to start thinking about your Moodle pages for 2018-19.

All 2017-2018 Moodle pages will be archived during graduation week (16-20 July). Once this has been done, your Moodle 2018-19 Moodle pages will be created, ready for you to work on.

Here at Essex, all Moodle content is ‘rolled-over’ from one year to the next which certainly saves time but perhaps leads to the same content being used year after year without change. Spending some time reflecting on your Moodle page from a student’s point of view will be a useful exercise. Do your slides have last year’s dates on them? Is your content still relevant? Is there anything new you need to add? Could you make use of some of Moodle’s many interactive features? What about multimedia content?

The Technology Enhanced Learning team (TEL) are ready and able to help you make the best use of Moodle to ensure your course is in tip-top condition and improve your students’ experience next year. We can help you evaluate your content, create new learning resources and structure and present your course material in a fresh, new way.

TEL (Technology Enhance Learning Team) hold regular Moodle drop-in sessions every other Wednesday morning and you can find the details on HR organiser – or we can arrange to meet you or your team for one-to-one or group training sessions at a time to suit you. Contact us at tel@essex.ac.uk.
