Language tutoring support in the LRC

  1. New and improved as of Spring 2012: We now have 2 computerized small group work spaces for tutoring groups.
  2. An effective computerized help desk
  3. A live CAE tutor calendar display. This will help the time zone-challenged students until all students are put into the right time zone in NINERMAIL (or self-help). At that point all students will be able to load the tutor calendar of their choice in NINERMAIL. The tutor calendar has also “LRC” in the title – this way students always are reminded WHERE the tutoring is. We are also working on getting small group workspaces set up in the entrance library area  to the left.
  4. Improved tutor signage
  5. A variety of non-computerized tutoring workspaces
  6. A variety of computerized tutoring workspaces that allow the tutoring to share with other uses of the LRC.
  7. As listed in this view when you enter the LRC: 433-tutoring

Sharing and reusing Moodle learning content using backup and restore, part I: Backup

2011/12/15 4 comments

To reuse your own content, you can import. To use somebody else’s content, the other user can backup his content (even though not shown below, a subset of the content of a course can be chosen) and share (by downloading the file created within the course file area) the backup file with you (a zip-archive that contains an xml file), for the other user to restore. Like so:   backup1 backup2a backup3a backup4a backup5abackup6backup7backup8

Now how can we scale this collaboration on Moodle learning content without an erepository?
