LUDIC is a Moodle course format plugin, resulting from research work in gamifictaion, that presents course structure and contents graphically. Images are dynamic, evolving over time to emphasise student achievement.
Look and Feel
The objective is provide a light-weight navigation experience, favoring large images over long texts.
This plugin is designed to be extremely easy to use, requiring only minimal input from the course creators in order to put it to use.
The plugin includes a set of dynamic skins for sections and activities that can be used out of the box. It is possible for a user to create their own dynamic skins but it should be noted that this feature currently requires some technical expertise.
Course structureLudic courses use a classic Moodle structure with content organised into a set of course sections.
A course overview page presents the sections to which the student currently has access.
The content for each separate section is displayed in it's own dedicated page.
Dynamic section skins
Each section, as represented in the course overview page, is dressed in a dynamic skin. The course creator can choose which skin to use for which section, selecting from a range of options provided out of the box and any additional skins that they have added themselves.
Dynamic content skins
Each activity and resource may either be presented 'inline', displayed as it would be in any other Moodle course format, or may be represented by a dynamic skin that is conceptually similar to the section skins described above.
