Moodle (along with other Learning Management Systems), are widely used within the education sector to facilitate content delivery, marking and student feedback. This paper describes a system which is designed to significantly increase efficiency, accuracy and security whilst reducing feedback latency for a laboratory marking environment. The MoodleNFC system described in this paper seeks to answer the question as to how to most efficiently record marks for students in a laboratory environment by considering aspects of efficiency, accuracy, data integrity and Moodle integration. For large laboratory environments the MoodleNFC system saves significant time by removing the need to search for and select the correct student requiring marking – instead a tutor simply scans a student’s ID card which automatically brings up the student record. The system is evaluated based on measured improvements in efficiency, accuracy and on evaluations completed by users of the system. Compared to a paper-based marking system benchmarking has demonstrated that efficiency increases in the order of 50% are attainable.
