VLE Review Assessment and Feedback Focus Group

The first of the Assessment and Feedback focus groups took place on the 19th January 2018. This was a very productive session and many requirements were gathered. Areas discussed included:

  • Tests and quizzes (functionality, usability, security, auto marking)
  • Assignments, including third party integration e.g. Turnitin, NESS
  • Grade Centre (management, prevention of leaked grades, general interface)
  • Student view
  • Reporting

The requirements gathered will be tidied up and sent to the members of the Task and Finish Group once all the focus groups have taken place.

A second Assessment and Feedback session will take place on the 29th January 2018 in which we hope to gather further requirements. There are no spaces left on this session but if you would like to share your thoughts, please send the project team an email and we will be in touch.

VLE Review – Course Build Focus Group

The first Course Build focus group took place on the 15th January 2018. This was a great session with a number of requirements resulting from the discussion. Topics covered included:

  • the availability of content (adaptive release),
  • the management of large files
  • layout and style of a module/course
  • the process of uploading/removing content
  • ability to share content with non-enrolled students/staff
  • integration with internal/external systems

The requirements gathered will be tidied up and sent to the members of the Task and Finish Group once all the focus groups have taken place.

There is an additional Course Build focus group taking place on the 1st February 2018 1.30pm-3.30pm and there are limited places still remaining if you would like to sign up and share your thoughts.
