Simplifying the Moodle Experience

The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how an NGO has enabled end users with little or no Moodle expertise to upload content and create courses without the need for a Moodle admin to provide support and guidance.

A global Not-for-profit organisation needed to enable global partners, humanitarian aid workers and subject matter experts to create courses whilst maintaining a simple and consistent look and feel for the course pages and course catalogue. To enable this, they have implemented;

  • A publishing workflow to standardize and simplify course creation.
  • improved course catalogue and faceted search.
  • A SOLR search engine to facilitate pure word searching.

This presentation will show each of these custom features and explain how together they have enabled the decentralisation of the course administration.
