CLAMP Chat: Three Useful Add-ons

CLAMP’s fourth CLAMP Chat will take place on Friday, February 19, from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern Time. Andrew Ruether of Swarthmore College will discuss three add-ons in use on Swarthmore’s Moodle site:

  1. Accessibility Filescan Block: displays information on the accessibility levels of PDF files within each course. We use this to make professors aware of the accessibility of their course files and to aid document remediation efforts.
  2. Turnitin Integration: plagiarism detection, grading interface, and student peer feedback system. Turnitin is best known for plagiarism checking, but the Moodle integration also includes a full-featured grading interface and robust method of assigning papers to students for peer review.
  3. Student name pronunciation: our method of having students record the pronunciation of their name in their Moodle profile. Although commercial products exist for students to record the pronunciation of their names, we’ve developed a system for doing this within Moodle that is free, easy, and lets us export the audio files for use in other systems.

The chat will take place over Zoom. Please register for the chat using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIqdO-trDkvH9c6aNRooPMipDsxdc1gzFDX.
