What can Schools and Academies do with ZiLink?

The inclusion of ZiLink within your Moodle implementation enables the school/academy to engage parents in their child’s learning, place important attainment and progress data at their teacher’s fingertips and bring together the school, teaching and parental support with the objective of enhancing childrens’ learning.

 

What can Moodle Administrators do with ZiLink?

ZiLink will automatically create and maintain courses, cohorts and enrolments based on data from the MIS. ZiLink will ensure that enrolments align with information in the MIS even when changes are made.

Administrators can add a range of ZiLink blocks that enhance their school’s implementation of Moodle to include user Timetables, Room Booking, School Photographs, PaperCut, Icon Navigation, Class View, Guardian View, Report Writer, Student Appointment, Student View, Timetable Week and Zimbra SSO.

Administrators can also create Moodle accounts for parents based on information from the MIS.

 

What can teachers do with ZiLink?

Class View displays data from the school MIS for every student in every course. It will also calculate and display progress together with information from the Moodle Gradebook and each course where the student is enrolled. Ideal for class teachers and those with a pastoral role.

ZiLink Room Booking enables a teacher to reserve alternative teaching spaces such as IT Suites. Changes are displayed in student, teacher timetables and visible to parents in Guardian View.

Guardian Scheduler manages appointments with students and parents.

Teachers can identify Moodle activities and resources that they want to make available to parents so parents can support their child’s learning such as home study activities.

Teachers can create student reports subject to a work flow that are published to parents via Guardian View.

 

What can parents do with ZiLink?

Parents have direct access to their child’s information through Guardian View which is designed to enable parents to support their child’s learning.

Guardian View displays attainment, progress, attendance, behaviour, timetable, general information, Moodle activities/resources and data from the Moodle Gradebook for each course.

Parents can create an appointment with their child’s teacher(s) through Guardian Scheduler.

Parents can view reports written by teachers in Report Writer.

 

What can students do with ZiLink?

Students can user their ZiLink Timetable to navigate their courses. The timetable can be displayed on its own page or above the Course Overview (theme permitting).

Room changes created with ZiLink Room Booking are highlighted in the ZiLink Timetable together with the new room location.

Students can use Icon Navigation to navigate their courses.

The PaperCut block will display information about their printing (requires PaperCut print management system).
