The Workshop Activity

Workshops are a Moodle activity which is highly customizable and thus takes a comparatively high amount of setup but facilitates peer review within a class.

This activity features:
  • Two grading values: student submissions as well as peer review
  • Multiple Phases of activity function: Setup, Submission, Assessment, Grading Evaluation, and Closed.
    Some of these phases can be automated to change after the submission deadline for example.
  • Peer reviews can be anonymous (Part of the Assessment phase)
  • This activity is generally reliant on rubrics

Due to the nature of this activity it’s hard for us to provide a clear step-by-step guide for basic use because this tool is so varied and flexible with how it can be used. If you have a specific goal in mind for this activity and are unsure how/what you can do we suggest checking out the following resources or contacting the ISPD department with questions and concerns and we’re happy to help you troubleshoot and get max functionality out of the activity in Moodle

Workshop Resources from Docs.Moodle.org

For first steps we suggest checking out the Workshop Quick Guide to see and understand the various phases and access an example of a Workshop in action.
