One might look at my last two posts and ask, “What’s that stuff doing there?” Well, I have decided to start posting my class objectives for the week on my blog as a way to capture them in time. You see I post my objectives in Moodle at the top of my courses every day:
Which is great. I really like having this information right at the top of the Course. The problem is that I am losing the previous information as soon as I update it. I have seen teachers logging this information in binders and books. I can’t quite bring myself to go analog on this. Not with Moodle already there. But I haven’t found a way to keep this information in Moodle (where I would really like to store it) and easily reference it in the Course Topic section.
I have experimented with embedding Google Calendar and entering the information as an event for each day but it felt clunky. I really like to have a database back end with a simple web front end that I could pre-load with objectives and assignments and have it populate automatically. I just don’t have the time right now to do that. So for now, I’ll capture the information in my blog. At least I will be able to go back and find the information when I need to.
