Course Completion Feature in Moodle

Course Completion in Moodle 2.0

Here is a screencast showing a couple of ways of using the new Course Completion feature in Moodle 2.0. If you enable Completion tracking in Site Administration>Advanced features then individual tasks in a course can be marked as complete either manually by the student or automatically based on certain criteria (a grade, a forum post, viewing the resource etc) You can then take this one step further by setting completion tracking criteria for a whole course and choosing the criteria for having a whole course marked as Complete. This again can be done manually by the student (or their teacher) or automatically once students have done specific tasks in the course. You can also include a course prerequisite – whereby a student needs to have officially completed an earlier course before their current course can be checked off as finished.

Required Site and Course Settings for Course Completion

Course Completion is a feature available in Moodle via enabling completion tracking and adding the Course Completion block to your course.

Site Administration>Advanced features>Enable Completion Tracking:
