This first in a series of podcasts from the e-Learning Team at the University of Bath will investigate the Assignment Activity in Moodle and how it can adopted for online submission of student work. In a discussion with Jess Francombe (Doctoral student in the Department of Education) and Rachel Wood (e-Learning Development Officer in the Department of Engineering), the benefits and challenges of using the assignment activity for formative and summative assessment within two very different programmes of study will be explored. Conclusions will be drawn that highlight opportunities for integrating its use in other teaching and learning contexts and the processes needed to ensure successful implementation.
