In 2011, Bedford College reviewed and tested various PLP solutions that were available for Moodle 1.9, unfortunately none resembled the product our teaching staff wanted to use.
Over time we have built our own PLP with more and more of the features we want and need.
Over the summer of 2013, when we upgraded our Moodle from 1.9 to 2.4, it was an easy decision to start afresh with the PLP and build our own custom block from the ground up. Over that summer the PLP block was built and rolled out for the start of the 2013/2014 season.
Feedback from our teaching staff/personal tutors was very positive, and along with our Grade Tracker project, it has become an important part of the college experience for both our students and teaching staff/tutors.
Thanks to support from the Ufi Trust, we have been able to develop the ePLP to meet the needs of other colleges and release it for use by the wider the FE community.
