STACK developments (for Moodle)

Transforming learning, teaching and education systems.

Student-led mastery learning technology that reduces admin and increases performance

A uniquely powerful and scalable learning tool, STACK is also technically complex and requires substantial time investment to maximise its value by both educators delivering curricula and content authors developing courses and feedback.

Common challenges on the path to delivering effective courses with STACK, we have found, include starting from scratch with no materials or templates to adapt, diverting staff from their primary roles to undertake adequate training and spending disproportionate time to solve minor technical issues because they’re unfamiliar.

Building the skills and experience of a local team to manage your system may not be possible and will certainly take time. Where we work alongside in-house staff, our approach is to use technical support to build their capacity. Where there is no in-house team, we provide rapid system and content development then timely ongoing support.

Why should I choose IDEMS for my STACK development?

IDEMS has experience developing STACK questions for a wide range of academic levels, primarily for higher education but all the way from secondary schools to the training of professionals. IDEMS is at the forefront of enabling STACK to be used for Statistics, Data Science and Proof comprehension assessment. IDEMS staff are members of the STACK development team, the African STACK Community Leadership team and the STACK professionals network.

IDEMS has also been instrumental in enabling the application of STACK to transform learning in under-resourced environments. Specifically IDEMS plays a key role supporting the African STACK community through training, hosting, technical support and sharing resources from our open question banks to help transform higher education across the continent.

Where are IDEMS’ STACK developments already in use?

STACK originated in Edinburgh and has created most transformative impact in Africa. IDEMS has been a part of STACK’s journey almost from the beginning and our collaboration with Edinburgh University continues through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership expanding the system for wider deployment in the UK and Europe.

STACK services IDEMS has developed are currently live with the UK Met Office, EUMETSAT, World Meteorological Organisation and the universities of Maseno, Trieste, Edinburgh, Masinde Muliro and Bahir Dar.
