Room booking system on Moodle
I'm looking for a way of booking IT rooms on (Cleo) Moodle that takes the minimum of fuss to set up at the start of the year and is simple enough for the teachers to use:rolleyes:.
The rooms are used about 60% of the time by timetabled classes, and it's a full-on two week timetable (week B bearing little resemblance to week A):eek:
I've made a category called "Staff" and a course named "Bookings"
I've considered a "database", but couldn't make it look simple enough to use and putting the timetabled classes in would be a nightmare. :( That is, however how we're doing the bookings for non-timetableable facilities like the minibus, for which it is ok :)
How good would Moodle be at handling an excel sheet that staff could download, book rooms on, then upload again? That process would have to be pretty seamless for them - it would have to be the "save " that uploaded it as they'd never cope with saving then uploading what they saved - is that possible?!:drunken_smilie:
I'm new to Moodle, but spent the past 18 months on a sharepoint VLE (that we decided we couldn't afford, hence moving to Moodle). All help greatly appreciated!
