Executive Summary

Course websites and Moodle websites in particular contain a wealth of information about the objectives of the course, the learning resources, the course work and the activities often in a week-by-week basis, the teaching methods, the learning support, etc. In some sense, course websites are quite similar to course outlines or syllabi that are most often available in PDF format. Course websites replicate also some of the information that can be found in administrative websites of universities (description of the course, learning objective, evaluation, learning time required, etc.). From a system perspective, this duplication of information can be a source of confusion and prevent the set-up of an integrated workflow approach to manage all the course information for agreement or accreditation purposes.
