I am in the process of connecting public schools to the net. One of my goals is to introduce blended learning.
The Kenyan system of education has 8 years for Primary school, whereby the same subjects are taught across the years with increased details and topic coverage in the higher classes.
The classes are from Standard 1 through to 8. In Moodle lingo could I put these as categories? Thus we would have the following categories:-
- Standard 1
- Standard 2
- Standard 3
- Standard 4
- Standard 5
- Standard 6
- Standard 7
- Standard 8
Subjects are; Maths, Science, English, Kiswahili, Social Studies and Religious Education. These appear to fit in to Courses in Moodle, however we have 8 difference syllabuses for each subject. Would it then be prudent to have each subject as a subcategory and then have different courses for each year within the subcategory? Thus have the following subcategories:-
- Social Studies
- Religious Education
Within each subcategory then have courses for the different classes eg Maths 1, Maths 2..... Maths 8.
Would guidance on this structure.
I hope I have understood your use case correctly, I would say it really depends on how different are your syllabus . If Maths1 and Math2 are only slightly different , maybe you could have separate groups within the course Maths and then use restrict activities for which group gets access to which activity
