Moodle Clinic –Progress Bar – Track Students Progress at a Glance

Date:    25 January 2019 (Friday)

Time:    12:45 – 1:15

Venue: 549, Meng Wah Complex, HKU

Workshop Outline:

Are you tracking your students’ learning progress by clicking on every single submitted assignment or every forum post in Moodle? Now there is a way to track students’ progress at a glance without countless clicking and excess page navigating. The ‘Progress Bar’ block is a time management tool that provides teachers and students with a visual display of their engagement with or completion of selected activities and resources. The Progress Bar visually displays both the range of activities/resources and level of student interaction and is designed to be a useful support for feedback and evaluation. Additionally, the overview page provides teachers with a holistic view of the progress of all students in a class, which may be one helpful indicator for identifying students at risk.

This hands-on clinical will briefly introduce the ‘Progress Bar’ function and then support course teachers in setting it up in your own courses.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon the completion of the E-Learning workshop, participants will be able to:

  • add the ‘Progress Bar’ block to the Dashboard;​
  • setup completion settings of activities/resources in the course;

All colleagues are welcome!
