There will be two learning areas: WizIQ course area and Moodle for Teachers (M4T) Moodle website. The live online sessions and recordings will be available on the WizIQ course area. The MOOC offers a free Moodle for Teachers Learning Experience (M4TLE) courses for beginners and advanced Moodlers on M4T Moodle site.

Unlike the traditional MOOCs that stress content and course delivery, Moodle MOOC will focus on active learning, reflection, sharing, and collaboration. The aim of the course is for the participants to learn through meaningful connections and social interactions. Participants who wish to receive a certificate of participation will be required to document their learning experiences by keeping a blog, wiki, website, or any other artifact that will include a description and reflection of the live sessions or recordings.

Moodle for Teachers Learning Experience (M4TLE)
M4TLE is a self-paced component of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on WizIQ for teachers and anyone interested in teaching online using Moodle, WizIQ, and other web technologies. The course will take place in the month of October 2013. The MOOC is in the spirit of open education and is completely free.

The course will only include asynchronous (not dependent on time) element on a Moodle site called Moodle for Teachers.
