Lightwork Marking for Moodle

  1. 1. Nitin Parmar Learning Technologist [ Friday 28 January 2011 ] e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office go.bath.ac.uk/nitin | @nrparmar
  2. 2. What is Lightwork? An open source application for the management and marking of assignments Aims at encouraging good marking practices Builds on the Moodle Assignment functionality, and integrates with the Gradebook Students still submit their assignment work to Moodle and receive their marks and feedback via Moodle. e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office go.bath.ac.uk/nitin | @nrparmar
  3. 4. Findings The software is ready for download and deployment for those institutions who want to use it. It is likely that more development resource will needed to drivethis product forward. Wishlist includes Moodle 2.0 integration, an iPad optimised interface and the ability to include audio feedback. Development sits outside the Moodle Foundation, but one of the key aims of the project is to have it led by a community. e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office go.bath.ac.uk/nitin | @nrparmar
  4. 5. "I feel that not enough institutions have thrown their weight behind this project (yet!) to make sure that this software doesn’t become a niche, which is not sustainable in the longer term." e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office go.bath.ac.uk/nitin | @nrparmar
