My college doesn't use e-Learning at all, and we do everything the good old way.
Now I want to introduce e-Learning, and I came across moodle during my search for a solution.
As there really is no e-Learning system, everyone will show resistant to adopting new approach, and I can only convince others, if I can show how e-Learning will REALLY help them (teachers and admins).
The best way seems to be online exams, as currently, teachers and admins are too much overloaded with exam works. Then, I will gradually add (or start using) other functionalities. So here is the workflow I propose, and would like to know can moodle handle this, or rather, can I handle this using moodle?
There are six semesters to be cleared for a degree (B. Sc.).
There are 4 subjects. Physics, Chem, Bio, Maths.
Students in Semester 1,2 will have 3 subjects out of above 4, in each semester.
Students in Semester 3,4 will have 2 (from previous 3) subjects, in each semester.
Students in Semester 5,6 will have only 1 (from previous 2) subject, in each semester.
The number of papers will vary from 4-6 every semester.
Respective subject department will conduct tests for their subject.
Now, with this background I expect the following workflow.
1. Student will enroll/register when he/she enters Semester 1. His credentials won't change until he/she gets degree.
2. Student will use his/her login credential only for online exams, which will be open for a limited period say 3 hrs, and conducted within campus on intranet (college LAN)
3. After each exam, a collective mark-sheet of all the students who took the exam can be obtained from moodle stats/reporting.
4. Students can be promoted to next semester upon completion of required grades/credits in all subject papers manually or automatically.
I don't wish to use any other moodle functionality, except student registration and exams/automatic grading, for time being.
Can this be done with moodle?
