Just met up with Niall in School of Management – he is looking for the following;
on a tablet pc / iPad – download all assignments for an assignment point in a course, mark them (annotate word docs) and upload back to Moodle – no plans on using the gradebook. This would be for a number of courses, however, one person (school admin) would download and upload. Staff collect device for marking then give it back.
Talked to james – he mentioned he did a similar thing at Cornwall.
Sounds like they’d zip the files, download them, open the zip, annotate, re-zip and upload to Moodle, then unzip. This was low risk because always had the submission on Moodle, and the annotated versions. The points of confusion and failure are reduced given only a few people manage the files (zip, upload, download)
So …. lets give it a go 🙂
