Teaching with Moodle
Moodle is the learning management system used to deliver courses at RRU.
There are several different Moodle sites in use at Royal Roads University.
Moodle Course Shell
If a course has previously run, typically the last course offering is copied over by CTET, as requested by the program. The instructor is sent a link to this course shell.
Please speak with your Program Head to be clear on what course revisions are expected. Part A of the Course Outline, including Course Description and Learning Outcomes, may not change. Part B, including the Course Overview, Assessment Matrix, Assignments, and Course Readings and Resources may change, but needs to be discussed with the Program Head. In certain programs or courses, no changes are to be made.
Depending on what Service Level is assigned to the course, the instructor will work with a CTET Instructional Designer (ID) or Learning Technologist (LT) to complete preparations for the course.
Please review CTET's Course Checklist to ensure that all preparatory work is complete.
Intellectual Property Rights
As per the Contract for Services, Part 2, please note the intellectual property terms:
Subject to the following paragraph, the University will own all intellectual property rights to all Course Materials and all other property or improvements/changes produced or created under this contract by the University or the Contractor or the Contractor’s employees, agents or subcontractors. The Contractor will assign, without further compensation, all of its right, title and interest in any intellectual property rights in all such property. The Contractor will ensure that all of its employees, agents and sub-contractors are similarly bound to assign their intellectual property rights and that all employees, agents and sub-contractors waive all moral rights (including rights of attribution and integrity) in relation to such property to the extent such moral rights cannot be assigned to the University. The University hereby grants the Contractor a royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide, nonexclusive license to use and reproduce all such property during the term of this contract to the extent necessary to perform the Contractor’s obligations under this contract.
Any Course Materials or other materials created by the Contractor (or the Contractor’s licensor) prior to the term of this contract (or materials created prior to the term of this contract that are subsequently modified by the Contractor to fit with the University course) that the Contractor uses to assist with the delivery of a University course will remain the intellectual property of the Contractor (or whomever owns the intellectual property for those materials). For the sake of clarity, such ownership rights entitle the Contractor to use and exploit such materials for any future courses or purposes. The Contractor will also own all improvements/changes to such materials made by the University or the Contractor. The Contractor hereby grants the University a royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, exploit and sub-license all such property (including improvements/changes thereto) during the term of this contract and after the term for any future courses or purposes. To the extent of any conflict between this Clause 20 and any provision in the University’s Intellectual Property Policy, this Clause 20 will apply.
Please direct any questions around intellectual property to your Program Head.
At the end of a course, you will be asked to provide all intellectual property developed in the course.
Learning about Moodle
All new faculty will be asked to take a workshop to familiarize themselves with Moodle, and are encouraged to enhance their skills as they continue to teach.
Moodle workshops are held regularly.
CTET's 2018 Moodle to the Max initiative provides valuable learning resources to explore different facets of Moodle to encourage faculty to expand their knowledge and use of Moodle.
