During the 2019/20 school year, teachers at the RVSOnline school engaged in course review and re-development. During that year, additional efforts were made to develop a set of course page templates that would form the basis of content pages in Moodle. Recognizing the benefits of well formatted content, the school produced a set of templates that will serve well into the future.
Page templates are organized in one Moodle book that is shared with all teachers. Teachers copy the HTML into their courses and then add their content. While this process is tedious and slow, the end results prove that the effort is worth it.
Below are samples. The Bootstrap page templates book is attached for download.
Thank you to the science department at Notredame High School in Red Deer (https://www.notredamehigh.ca), Alberta, Canada for sharing a Chemistry 20 sample course that contains Bootstrap formatted Moodle books.
Teachers take pride in their work and want to build courses that adjust to different screen sizes has content that can be read easily, has clean layout out and that is accessible. Utilizing Bootstrap to format content provides opportunities to build content and lessons that students enjoy and don't struggle with.
Some noticeable features of the course sample below are:
- three column course header for important information and getting started tasks
- consistent unit objectives block with video and bullet list
- consistent two column book pages throughout
- accordions with embedded video and text
- tooltips for self-check
- consistent key concepts block.
Sample images are below.
