Accommodations in Moodle
Student Accommodations to extend time on an exam
Duplicate an exam, test or quiz in Moodle to provide extended time for select students in a class or provide a self proctored test
Excuse a student from an assignment in Moodle
Faculty members use multiple devices to deliver and capture instructional content. Some faculty members ask students in their class to assist with recording lectures and capturing lecture content to later provide in Moodle. Please let the eLearning department know if you need help with additional resources.
Voice Type, Speech-to-Text
Use the tools below to capture as text live on campus or online lectures, take notes using voice typing, or use these tips to transcribe course videos for closed captioning. Please note, that some addition edits may be needed once these tools transcribe speech it hears in to text. Using a microphone will improve service. However, as you learn how to speak (tone, speed, volume) using these tools and as the tools learn to hear your voice, this will improve and minimize the number of edits you find.
