Archiving is the saving and storage of 16/17 Moodle courses
- Archiving is a service provided as part of Rollover
- Archiving allows staff and students access to a 'locked-down' and thereby preserved copy of their courses from the previous academic year - guest access is not permtted
- Courses are archived online at (https://moodle1617.royalholloway.ac.uk) until June 2018
- Thereafter, courses are archived offline for a period of five years
Two-stage process; a response to considerable increased use of online assessment
Moodle usage during the ‘Summer’ period of June-September has increased dramatically since 2011-12. This is due largely to the integration of Moodle and Turnitin; the increased use of Turnitin; and the widespread uptake of online assessment.
The increased usage means that 16/17 courses are still very much live during the summer. Typical activities include the re-submission of Turnitin assignments for UG courses; the submission of dissertations/projects for PG courses; the resitting of quizzes in UG and PG courses; and other assessed work.
