Manage Modules


A module in Rogo is  an assessed component of a course that contributes to the candidate's degree.

Rogo keeps its own independent register of modules.  It manages these through the Administrative Tools interface:

You may create modules in this list.  You may also edit and delete modules after first selecting them.

  • Module ID:  Unique code for the module
  • Name:  Plain English description of the Module
  • School:  Dropdown organised by faculty and then school.  Only Schools are selectable
  • SMS API:  Student Management Systems can be integrated with Rogo and will display in this drop down. An example plugin is plugin_cs_sms. If enabled the IMS Enterprise integration is also listed here.<no lookup> is the default when no integration is required.
