The Montana Digital Academy is re-envisioning learning pathways for High School Credit Recovery Students using Conditional Release in Moodle.
The Montana Digital Academy credit recovery program is available to Montana students that have previously attempted a course in a face-to-face environment and were not successful. The MTDA credit recovery environment is set up to be more flexible than a traditional environment to give students a maximum opportunity for success.
Conditional Release within Moodle is a key component to adding flexibility in these courses. Conditional Release is an often talked about feature, but if you are interested in seeing a program built from the ground up around this feature, this is the session for you!
In this session the following will be presented:
- an overview of why a Credit Recovery program is a natural fit with conditional release
- the logic tree necessary to build a course/program around conditional release
- current limitations of conditional release to consider
- a look behind the scenes of a fully created course using conditional release
- 3rd party plugins that make conditional release even better
