Moodlerooms Joule administration
Message from firstname.lastname@example.org
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
We would like some input from any institutions using the hosted Moodlerooms Joule platform.
We are just finishing our first semester using the hosted Joule platform.
We are still tweaking our admin strategies, and would like some input.
We want instructors to be able to have access to courses one year after they have taught them, so that when the new shell is created, they can copy their old content into the new shell.
We thought about using the course template to do this, however I don’t think it’s much use since often times instructors don’t teach the same section of a course, which would make their content copy into someone else’s course.
So, we want to give access, yet keep the server from bloating.
Here’s our current strategy:
Courses are created the minute they hit the SIS via conduit.
Instructors are enrolled immediately, students enrolled 1 week prior to the start of class (so that instructors can build their course content without students seeing and interacting).
Students are unenrolled 1 month after the end of term (in order to allow for completion of incompletes).
Instructors are unenrolled 1.5 YEARS after the end of term, so that they have access when the next year’s shell is created.
After 1.5 years (3 full semesters), old courses are archived and removed from the server.
We don’t know if this iteration of our strategy is best, and it is impossible to foresee all of the ramifications.
Any thoughts or strategies to suggest?
