Have you ever thought of asking your learners to get recommendations letters before considering them for admissions? Marina Glancy has developed a new activity plugin which helps you in setting up the recommendation letter requests within moodle course.
The plugin allows you the students to request recommendations. The recommending persons will fill the requests online without any hassle of logging in the system.
As a teacher, you can setup the questions in the recommendation letter with a restriction over maximum number of requests and minimum number of completed requests for fulfilling the activity completion criteria.
As a student, you can send the web form to the recommending person by just using their name and email address. An e-mail with unique link will be sent to recommending person asking to fill the form online. After the recommendation form is completed teacher will receive notification and can accept or reject recommendation. And the best thing is that students will not be able to see his recommendations except the status of the request.
You can grab your copy of the recommendation letter requests plugin here. The plugin is available for Moodle 3.1 version only.
