Course Description

Moodle for Teachers (M4T) EVO 2014 (M4TEVO14) online workshop ( see syllabus of the course ) will take place on a Moodle website called Moodle for Teachers (M4T) .

The aim of the M4T workshop is to provide participants, who have never used Moodle or who would like to enrich their previous Moodle experiences, with the knowledge and skills to navigate a Moodle course, access resources, activities, and blocks from a student perspective and practice the same Moodle features in class sandbox sections as teachers. The participants will develop a lesson or course on Moodle.

The workshop will include both asynchronous (not dependent on time) and synchronous (time dependent) learning environments. The asynchronous will be conducted on Moodle for Teachers Moodle site and the synchronous learning environment will be conducted on WizIQ (free premium accounts for educators). Participants will watch tutorials, post to the discussion forums, and practice Moodle tools with the roles of a student and teacher.

This intensive five-week workshop is designed to engage the participants in theoretical and practical aspects of online learning and teaching with a Learning Management System (LMS) called Moodle. Participants or Moodlers as they are called will be introduced to the Moodle philosophy and course development tools. By successfully completing the program, participants will have acquired the knowledge and skills needed to create basic Moodle resources and activities for blended online learning (BOL) or blended learning (BL) courses.

As online learners, participants will understand online learning from the student's perspective so they can prepare their future courses with the learner in mind.

M4T EVO 2014 requires participants to be active at least 10 hours a week on theoretical and practical aspects of online learning (individually and in teams). Participants will learn about resources, activities, and blocks as students and practice the role of a teacher in setting up resources and activities. In addition, teacher will have access to the admin settings for courses and for user enrollments. Participants will use screensharing (Jing, screencast-o-matic) and authoring tools (Youtube, Vimeo).

Dear Moodle-Team, is it still possible to participate in the course? Another question would be whether 10 hours weekly are mandatory? Thanks for your answer! Kind regards from Vienna! Christian

I used ATutor for many years, but this year, I decided to put my courses on Moodle instead. Moodle's documentation can be difficult to follow and not everybody's questions are answered in Moodle's forums, so I've mostly learned how to use it by trial and error. I'm looking forward to having some real instruction about how to use it. Thank you for offering thSee more
