How to create Interactive Moodle Activities with MATLAB


The idea of online teaching has been toyed around for many years. It was the pandemic, however, that forced us to adopt it. It is now commonly accepted that online education is here to stay and Learning Management System (LMS) like Moodle offers a versatile platform for this.

  • Did you know that Moodle is one of the most popular LMS in Nordic and Baltic universities?
  • Are you already using Moodle for teaching a course?
  • Would you like to make a fuller use of Moodle beyond sharing files and conducting simple quizzes?

We are happy to inform you that it is possible to create interactive MATLAB based Moodle Assignments that can be automatically graded and support instant feedback!

Many teachers in Finland and Baltic Universities are already using it to enhance students’ knowledge of course-topics as well as their programming skills. Join us in a short seminar where we will demonstrate how to quickly set-up your first MATLAB Assignment in Moodle using a tool called MATLAB Grader.


  • Create MATLAB-based homework assignments inside Moodle
  • Use rich text, images, hyperlinks and LaTeX equations to describe the problems
  • Access library of ready-made problems from different subject areas to get started easily
  • Automatic grading of student solutions with instant custom feedback
  • Integration to Moodle gradebook and learning analytics
  • Examples of real university courses using MATLAB Grader in their class

Who Should Attend

Instructors, teachers, teaching assistants, Moodle Administrators and Educationalists
