Moodlers, let us know how you use the course administration setting in your Moodle site!

July 7, 2017

Do you remember when we talked to our UX Team Lead, Alberto Corado, about all things user experience for Moodle?

At the end of our interview article, Alberto invited Moodlers to get involved in our UX work:

“I highly recommend that educators and learners who use Moodle become involved in Moodle’s UX work. They can do so by joining the usability forum on Moodle users can volunteer to participate in surveys, card-sorting activities, usability tests and other research studies.”

Thanks to all Moodlers who have helped us and participated in past research studies and tests.

We are now looking to with work with course administrators (with editing rights).

Now, we are again looking for more volunteers to participate in a simple research activity to gain insight on the course administration setting on your Moodle sites.

We want to learn how editing teachers, course administrators or trainers use this functionality so that we can improve it.

As always, your feedback will be anonymous but extremely valuable in helping us focus and deliver better user experience.

So what does this research activity involve?

We have organised a card sorting activity for you to participate and provide feedback.

In this activity, we will ask you to sort 28 course settings (including course administration, reports, badges, question bank, users and categories) into the following groups:

  • I use it all the time
  • I use it often
  • I use it rarely
  • I never use it
  • I don’t know what this is

If you have not done a card sorting activity, it is really easy and straightforward – you simply drag and drop your answers. Here’s a snapshot:

The activity should only take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete!

Want to get involved?

If you are an editing teacher, a trainer or someone who has course administrator editing rights on a Moodle site, we’d love to see you join our research activity!
Start the card sorting activity now!

This course administration setting research activity closes on UTC: Thursday, 13 July 2017 at 16:00:00.
