UCSB branded course management system (based on Moodle)
Gauchospace, found at https://gauchospace.ucsb.edu, is a UCSB branded installation of Moodle.
A key benefit of Gauchospace is the ability to have a secure centralized gradebook, i.e. one where:
- Instructors, TAs and readers have read/write access to all grades
- Students have read only access to only their own grade
- Adding/dropping is automatic, and synchronized with course enrollment
- All students and faculty already have a username/password (their existing UCSBNetID).
A consideration whenusing Gauchospace for actual curriculum content (e.g. content of lectures, labs, homework and programming assignments) is that typically only students enrolled in the course can see that content. This can make sharing curriculum resources more cumbersome.
