Assessment of Exams at Atenea, an IMS LTI Application for Scalability Problems

In 2004, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya modified its online teaching support platform. The previous proprietary programme was replaced with Moodle, an open source platform. The whole university community, particularly those responsible for providing support for the online teaching support platform, was put to the test by the population’s confinement at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. As a result of the increasing activity and the likelihood of the generalisation of online assessment, concerns regarding probable scalability difficulties with the quiz functionality during the examination period developed. Using Moodle’s IMS LTI interoperability features, a high-performance version of the Moodle Quiz Module As A Service (SaaS) was deployed to plug-and-play within the university’s LMS without relying on internal resources. The goal of this research is to examine the solution, which includes a systems strategy, private cloud operations, internal communication, and teacher training, that allowed a university course to be assessed in a constrained space.
