As you are finding your way around Moodle 3.2, we draw your attention to another feature that you may find useful, the Moodle Checklist.
This activity enables lecturers to create a checklist to help students monitor their progress on a module. The students can check off each item on the list, as they complete it. The resulting progress of the module can be monitored by the lecturer and downloaded from the gradebook.
This activity can support learning by:
- providing students with overview of progress and achievement over time,
- identifying lack of progress to prompt an intervention by the lecturer.
The Checklist, which can be added to a Moodle module as an activity, has previously been available for colleagues with access to the pilot role. Positive feedback from staff who used the Checklist last year has meant that we have incorporated this feature in Moodle and it is now available to all staff.
The Moodle Checklist can be set up in three ways, or as blend of the three:
- Lecturers can add tasks for students to check off themselves,
- Lecturers can create a Checklist which students themselves can add tasks to, or
- A Checklist can be automatically populated from activities and resources in the module.
More information on how to set up and manage the Checklist activity can be found on our guidance site. If you are interested in discussing how Checklist can support your students, get in touch with the Educational Technology Team.
