Moodle Blue Card for lecturers

Here at Oxford Brookes, we have a Blue Card scheme enabling students with specific learning difficulties (SpLDs) to flag their work with a blue card, so the tutor will mark it with due consideration.

There are two ways of submitting a Moodle assignment that might be required to be assessed differently if a student has a specific learning difficulty: the Turnitin assignment, and the Moodle assignment.

Here's what the JavaScript blue card functionality will look like in Moodle to a lecturer.

Please note this is a proof of concept and is not yet available in live Moodle.

We run a Moodle query in the background to check whether the student is entitled to a blue card, and only display the blue card button to them if they are entitled to use it.

When the lecturer opens the submissions to a Moodle or Turnitin assignment, the ones who have added a blue card will be highlighted.
