Blocks: Learning Outcome Generator
The Learning Outcome Wizard is a plug-in to help lecturers choose which activities to add to their course based on intended learning outcomes. This is done in cooperation with educational developers that create sequences based on research into pedagogy. Lecturers can easily step through these sequences and eventually be taken to the appropriate activity creation page. This plug-in was created to replace existing sequences that were difficult and time-consuming to manually generate. There are three main components to the plug-in, the wizard, the generator and the sequence list page.
The generator is used by educational developers to create the learning outcome sequences used by the wizard.
It presents a GUI to the user that allows the visual creation of sequences.
The sequences are saved as flat JSON files on the server and have to be approved by administrators before they are available to lecturers.
Additionally, developers can download the created sequences, upload sequences, and load previously created sequences for editing purposes.
