Badges and Latest Badges block

Badges can be an effective way to motivate and engage students as they progress through a Moodle module by acknowledging students progress against module targets and goals.

Badges are not being used to accredit or verify the acquisition of skills and knowledge by students so students will not be able to export their badges to an external backpack in order to demonstrate the acquisition of a skill to an external body.


An activity for peer and self-assessment. It can be used to encourage student collaboration and self-awareness


Activity to create interactive content in Moodle.

There are a number of H5P options that are not recommended for use as the functionality is better supported in Moodle. We recommend that you avoid using H5P to add individual questions or question sets as the Moodle Quiz is a much more effective and powerful activity to do this.

H5P is very effective at helping you to create interactive content for formative activitiesThis activity requires manual intervention to move the activity between the different phases.


The Journal allows students to create online text journal entries. The work students submit is visible only to the lecturer and not to the other students.

This activity used to be part of core Moodle, but was removed as similar functionality could be achieved using the Assignment activity. This activity is now only available as a plugin. This plugin has been made available as a pilot plugin based on a request from BVS at City Law School.

Event Monitoring

Event monitoring allows programme administrators and lecturers who are also enrolled with the Pilot role to receive notifications when certain events happen in Moodle.

  • To use Event monitoring, a 'rule' needs to be created for the event to be monitored and then a user, such as the admin or lecturer will need to subscribe to it to be notified.

  • The rule will specify what the event is and how often it must happen before notification is sent to the subscriber. The notification may be pop-up, email.

  • A lecturer or programme administrator can create a rule from Settings > Reports > Event monitoring rules.

  • You can subscribe to available rules via the Profile> Preferences > Event monitoring.
