This or a similar question keeps popping up in Moodle.
Let me first be very specific by pointing out that 'I am not interested in any SCORM based authoring tools' as a solution.
Previous responses to the 'best authoring tool for Moodle' for example, often revolve around SCORM authoring, but I am solely interested in using Moodle features only, certainly not SCORM based activities. So, we can forget about the usual suspects....
So, my overarching questions is "What is the best method to create Moodle courses when designing them and how to manage content?".
This is a rather broad question and will likely attract a myriad of different responses - there are lots of aspects for course authoring to touch upon, so the important aspects I am interested in finding solutions to are below.
Situation 1: We're moving to a more formulated or rather templated structure when designing courses. Existing courses are being re-created and are now broken down into smaller courses - a complete redesign is happening, from the ground up.
Aim 1: We have decided to work from a standardised template for basic course structure and this is to be used as a kind of checklist of course criteria. I need to be able to track course development progress for my team, preferably, so team members can all see the current progress of a particular courses' development (or development stages).
Question 1: Is there a built in Moodle tool or plugin that can assist when creating course templates/criteria or structure to ensure nothing is missed from the setup/design phase?
Situation 2: I predominantly use the "Lesson Module" to deliver my learning content, combined with the use of various other modules, i.e. H5P, Quiz, Assignment, Forum and some more. These are sometimes embedded within the lesson module.
Aim 2: I would like to keep track of my course resources and content development progress, but I see no easy way to do this using "Lesson Module" or in-fact any Moodle based module they simply lack this capability. I need a tool or feature that can assist in this regard.
Question 2: Is there a feature or other tool I may not be aware of that can help me
create content, which tracks the use of various media resources (e.g.
images, videos, questions, etc.)? Ideally the solution will allow my team visibility of course content development and its' progress.
To keep things simple, that's it for now, I'd be very interested in your opinions.
