Abstract

This poster illustrates the enhancement of the ‘OU Mobile VLE’, originally delivered through highly-customised Moodle v1.9, through to release of a more standardised approach for Moodle 2.x. This case study builds on student feedback, both unsolicited and in student surveys. Combining with usage analysis, key features were refined and optimised for delivery and contribution via the mobile web.
Support for distance education requires more narrative, signposting and scaffolding of the learning design to be available. A package of discrete resources and activities structured through a ‘study planner’ approach, coupled with ‘alternative formats’ covers the on/offline blend. Formative self-assessment was extended – from reflection in course texts through to simple quiz question types.
