Activities: CADO: Course outline & approval
This Moodle module enables teachers to automatically generate a curriculum report (aka a "CADO" = Course Assessment and Delivery Outline) from a regular Moodle course. From an approved CADO, displayed within a browser or the Moodle Mobile App, students can easily navigate their course requirements and link to important activities.
The CADO absorbs information from the forum, assignment and quiz modules, including user grouping, grading rubrics and completion criteria. It uses the tag system for custom activity related information. It offers three CADO-specific text areas and one site-specific text area for custom information not normally held within Moodle activities.
In addition, the mod provides an approval workflow system. Different roles can be set up to generate, compare or approve the CADOs, with alerts and messaging at the completion of each stage in the workflow. Upon approval, further editing is disabled and student view is unlocked. All views of approved CADOs are logged.
Course variants, such as those created by different user groupings, or caused by changes in assessments, are able to be compared using different CADOs, with section differences highlighted visually.
All the terminology within the report, including "CADO", is able to be customized using Moodle's language settings, and the report styles may be customised using css.
