The survey for improving Moodle usage has been completed and, since 98% of respondents use Moodle in their studies, identifying issues and making necessary changes to the software is of high priority.
The survey specifically identified the various devices and connections that students use to access Moodle. Most commonly, laptop computers and smart phones are used. This information will allow Information Systems Services (ISS) to determine what improvements should be a priority and which will benefit the greatest number of students. Suggestions were also given for improved staff usage of Moodle, as can be viewed in the image above, where the font size reflects the frequency of suggestions made. Again, this information can help staff determine important considerations when creating module spaces on Moodle.
Most respondents did not report technical issues when using Moodle but for those issues that were identified, we are discussing these with ISS to help in their effort to provide students with reliable Moodle usage.
Some of the suggestions made by participants have already been passed on to ISS staff and have been received favourably. The suggestions for improving staff software usage will be incorporated into future staff training sessions and web-based support. We wish to thank everyone for their time and appreciate ISS and e-learning staff for their input to the survey and receptiveness to the data collected.
