Abstract

The Saskatoon Catholic Cyber School is an asynchronous online high school serving approximately 2000 students a year. We recently made a significant change in our school by switching to the Moodle learning management system. Because of this, we were also able to create in-house modifications and that allowed for the integration of many automatic enhancements that have increased our student success rates. These include automatic bi-weekly report card e-mails, SMS course calendar activities updates, and student inactivity notifications that get sent to students, parents and teachers. We have also incorporated many innovative initiatives such as online credit recovery which allows student to re-take specific, independent sections of existing classes in order to achieve their credit. We also supply hybrid copies of our courses for use in face-to-face educational environments. These examples, as well as many others, will be presented.
