We use Moodle extensively for classroom and online delivery of courses and assessment.
Over the last couple of years we have encountered a few edge case issues that I've not found solutions for. Well at least one of them.
Here are the issues... I hope you can help out. Especially with my Fully Online problem.
Assessments and Dynamic Enrolments
The assessment modules work well in the traditional environment (students commence on same date) as the assessment modules give the ability to set a due date.
There are some edge, and no so edge cases that we encounter problems with:
- Fully Online Students (Dynamic Start Date)
- Late Starter Students (Traditional Enrollment)
Students are dynamically enrolling.
Due dates at the moment would have to be left off to allow them to attempt the assessments as needed.
The ability to set a due date based on the start date would facilitate the use of scheduled assessments.
Is there a plugin that adds an option to the assignments to set an assignment due date based on a number of days after the enrollment date.
Late Starter Students
These students would need to have the assessment deadlines adjusted based on when the started.
This would probably be best achieved by a "due date adjustment" for each student in this situation.
The latter (Late Start) would not be a problem to complete manually as we might get two or three late starters per course.
The former (Online) is a problem as there could be hundreds of enrollments per day.
