In the Learning and Research Technologies Department (LRT), one of the project I’m currently involved in with my colleagues is getting the past exam papers to students via their Moodle learning environment, creating a great online as well as providing a seamless and personalised experience for MMU students.
Over the past months my tasks was to search and locate the ‘keepers’ of the past exam papers – the local MMU Exam Officers. It’s been a task on its own finding Exam Officers. I finally managed to track them all (I hope so, get in touch if not) down with a little detective work and help of number of staff.
Working with the Exam Officer has been very rewarding, everyone has been so accommodating and working very hard on providing me with the necessary information I wanted. Thousands upon thousands of formatted past exam papers and tagged with the appropriate unit codes were sent to me to be upload into Equella our MMU digital repository so that they can become available in the appropriate units in Moodle for our MMU students.Over the months campus Exam officers have continued to update me with past exam papers to upload in bulk.
Here is a typical past exam papers view of what the students will see in their Moodle Right Hand Side (RHS) block when they are logged in. Students will be presented up to last three years of the past exam papers under the heading LIBRARY – Exam papers. Clicking on the appropriate exam papers link will open a new tab in the browser with a PDF file of the past exam paper.
Please note – previous methods of accessing the exam papers via local campuses and Library websites links have all been disabled.
