A BIG thank you to the 375 students who took part in the IT/ILT Survey.
Your contribution is much appreciated. Watch out for the key findings.
From Rosie Burgess and Reuel Thompson (Student Union IT/ILT Reps)
Some new features of the Moodle upgrade
1) On the Dashboard your Course Overview now has two tabs, to display course progress and activity deadlines.
Timeline – this shows assignments, quizzes and tasks that are due.
This is to help you keep track of due dates for required activities set.
These can be sorted by date or course.
Courses – this shows your courses.
The percentage indicates how much of the required work has been completed.
Courses is the default Tab but when returning to the Course Overview your active tab is remembered.
2) AVAILABLE NOW: the final step in the Microsoft Office 365 integration now allows users to upload files to Moodle assignments from their OneDrive via the File Picker. Especially useful to mobile/tablet users.
3) Remember that a Mobile Moodle App is available for Apple, Android and Windows devices. Point the App to http://moodle.bexhillcollege.ac.uk/
This is your Virtual Learning Environment. You can access learning resources and activities uploaded by your teacher.
Click on the hamburger icon (Navigation Bar) at the top left of the site when logged in to hide or reveal your Grades and other courses. Use the gear icon (top right) to access Settings.
A Mobile Moodle App is available for Apple, Android and Windows devices. You can use OneDrive, Google Drive and Picasa Web Album to submit assignments and files to Moodle.
You will be enrolled in the relevant Moodle courses. Note: new courses are added but while access to old courses are not removed they can be on request. If you have any problems, incorrect courses or need access to old courses removed either send me an e-mail using your College account or call into the Library/LRC and ask for me. Thank you.
