Blended learning is becoming more and more popular. I’m a proponent of using Moodle for blended learning because it is open source, has a long history of development, and is extremely flexible.

One aspect of blended learning is real world assignments. Not everything can, or should be, digital. However, in a blended learning world, tracking those real world assignments should be cohesive with online material.

I’ve written about grading student speeches (a definite real world application) using Moodle and rubrics. That still works. Since I published that four years ago, a quick overview is in order. In Moodle, set up an assignment with nothing selected for Submissions. Select (or create) your rubric. As students give their speech, complete the rubric. Students receive truly timely feedback. The teacher is done with grading by the time the students are sitting in their seats (no more nights of translating notes, transferring grades, etc.)
