Our college is currently in transition from Moodle 1.9 to Moodle 2.5. Upon trying to get myself familiar with the features, I noticed that there wasn't an option to add an offline activity. Was that not included in the updated platform?
The teachers use the Offline Activity as a way to enter a grade for their exams given in the classroom. I'm not sure if it was a glitch in the system or what, but when using Moodle 1.9, it seemed that when I tried to show them how to enter grade items manually, Moodle would end up hiding the grade from the students. This led to some very upset students and angry teachers. The only way to fix this was to go into each student manually and uncheck "hidden." This was something that the teachers felt took up too much time. With Offline Activity no one ever had an issue since you graded it as you would any other activity.
If you could provide some insight that would be very helpful. First, if there is anything similar to offline activity in 2.5. Secondly, if not, if you have heard of the problem that I wrote about above and if it's been fixed to accommodate current versions.
Thank you so much for your time!
