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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
CLAMP’s third CLAMP Chat will take place on Friday, January 22, from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern Time. Kevin Wiliarty of Hampshire College will discuss Hampshire’s Moodle environment:
Hampshire College is a relatively young, very small liberal arts college in Amherst, Massachusetts. We don’t have letter grades, academic departments, or majors. Every student designs their own program of study, and the community at large values hands-on ingenuity and doing a lot with a little.
Hampshire’s Moodles reflect many of the community’s values and priorities. We have few external dependencies, and we try to steer clear in particular of high-cost, high-maintenance entanglements. On the other hand, we do maintain a small number of core hacks and home-grown plugins to help us deliver the Moodle we want. Join me on the CLAMPchat to see what kinds of trouble we get into and stay out of.

CLAMP’s first CLAMP Chat will take place on Friday, November 20, from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern Time.
