Presentation for JISC Connect More Scotland event: https://www.jisc.ac.uk/events/connect-more-in-scotland-16-jun-2016
As a Learning Technology Unit, supporting core services such as Moodle and Mahara for the whole university is a vital part of our role, but sometimes these do not have all the functionality that’s required. Acknowledging this, we also work with academics to identify particular needs and provide bespoke solutions. We then make these solutions available to others who’d like to use them. In our presentation we talk about some of our recent developments - including YACRS, our open source classroom response system, and Inspector, for Moodle analytics.
