Questionnaire template on staff Moodle use and results from partner group.
DigiVET4ALL project produced a questionnaire. This questionnaire was used to acquire data on staff Moodle use. The questionnaire was carried out twice within the span of the project. In January of 2020 before Corona virus pandemic had hit and again in November 2021 after the effects of Corona virus were evident.
The questionnaire results were used to steer the material production in the project. The aspects of Moodle that were deemed the most troublesome by vocational educators, were priorised in guide material production in the project. Furthermore the questionnaire produced invaluable information on the change that took place on Moodle use in organisations as a side product of Corona Pandemic and the subsequent school lock downs that forced education providers to take a digital leap in a very short time.
The questionnaire template can be accessed, copied, edited and used as long as the logos are retained.

Here are some of the most important general signals from the statistics and free form comments of the identical original pre-corona questionnaire versus the follow-up post-corona questionnaire. These observations are generalized from the collective data of four countries / organisations. Every organisation has gotten their own data and analysed it in more detail with their own scope for developing Moodle usage further.
- The daily and/or weekly usage of Moodle has increased significantly (also other digital tools such as MS Teams, Zoom, Office 365 etc.).
- The role and importance of Moodle as a pedagogical tool has grown.
- The level of skills and knowledge concerning Moodle usage has increased
- The number of teachers/content creators who use more advanced tools than before has increased. Also, logically the number of users who use only the basic tools has decreased.
- The users experience of their own Moodle skills and general ICT-skills has grown more positive.
- Many actions in Moodle were rated easier to do in the follow up questionnaire than in the original. (And in most cases the amount of people who rated different things “very difficult” had decreased and in some instances even almost disappeared)
- The organisations had responded to growing demand with more Moodle-support in various forms or at least the marketing of the support was done better as the
- The differences in course creation processes are very organisation dependant. Some organisations use more centralised approach with more control over the courses, unified content, easier updateability and life cycle management. Then again some organisations have chosen to give more autonomy to teachers at the expense of unity and control.
- The positive development was most notable in organisations where Moodle usage was low (for different reasons) during the first questionnaire. Corona induced distance learning forced many teachers to take part in the digital leap.
Clear directions and the support from organisations management / lead was highlighted as a major factor in the success of the digital leap.
