Hello! I have yet to introduce myself on the forum. I am a new faculty member at Purdue University teaching unmanned aerial systems under the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology. I am using GitLab for my course content to create a repository of content that can easily be transferred (forked, branched, etc.) from other faculty that will alternate teaching my courses. I am also using GitLab to collect feedback from students by means of issues (and some merge requests) to help with developing content that works best for them. That is, as students work through the content and identify components that could be explained or clarified in a better way, they can submit issues that can be viewed by other students until the suggestion is merged into the content.
I structure my course in GitLab through weekly directories each containing a README file describing the course objectives, etc. My university uses Brightspace learning management system which has some powerful features in terms of assignments and quizzes. However, it lacks in creating nimble courses that can be edited on-the-fly (and collaboratively among both faculty and students) to show the most updated content without directly editing the content within the LMS.
Because I keep my GitLab repo updated with any content changes, I would like to embed that content into my LMS so that changes are reflected realtime. Unfortunately, as a security measure, GitLab blocks the ability to embed content. I would love to hear how others are connecting their LMS with GitLab!
