I'm taking on a new role, managing development and delivery of blended learning courses for a university/industry partnership. As we get underway, I hope to take advantage of Moodle features like learning plans, competencies, outcomes, etc.
Our previous development efforts have resulted in a lot of duplication of both effort and materials. I'd like to eliminate that by breaking our courses into "modules" comprising resources such as lecture slides and related activities (quizzes, pages, etc.), ideally with the ability to share a module across several courses. In a perfect world, I'd like to be able to maintain the module in one place, e.g. uploading a new set of slides and having them appear in the various courses which use that module.
I guess what I'm asking is: is there a canonically correct, Moodle-specific way to address this requirement?
For example, suppose a two-day course comprises six different modules (which relate to industry-standardized work roles and tasks). Another two-course uses four of the same modules. What's the best way to share modules between courses? Should I be looking at SCORM?
(Yes, I'm aware of the Reusing activities documentation page, but am hoping for something a little more automatic.)
And a related question: how does this relate to competencies and learning plans? I'd like our industry partners to be able to see the progress of their employees - after all, they're funding us and I'd like to demonstrate value. ;)
Any and all advice gratefully accepted. ;)
