A Case Study: Using Moodle on the Undergraduate Music Programme

Dr Christopher Wiley, Undergraduate Course Director at the Centre for Music Studies at City University London won a runners-up prize at the 2011 Moodle Awards. Along with the other winners, he was recognised at the LDC’s Learning at City Conference in June.

Chris pioneered the use of electronic assignment submission for the BMus programme, working with Michelle Parker, the programme administrator. He also uses online repositories such as New Grove, IMSLP, and Naxos, which creates a blended learning environment for the level 1 Study Skills module.

In this case study he discusses his experience of building the Moodle course: the challenges of online submission in Music; the advantages of providing scores, recordings, and articles online; and feedback from his students.
