The purpose of the MOOC is to connect with educators for instruction and learning, reflective practice, social and collaborative learning, cultural exchange and peace, personal and professional development, community building, best practices and challenges involved in teaching and learning with technology, student engagement with the content, peers, and the facilitator, and learning to teach online with Moodle course and learning management system.
Participants will be able to participate in live online classes and view the recordings from the Moodle session area. 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 practice areas as teachers and managers of a Moodle course. The participants will develop a lesson in teams in a Moodle course of their own.
Participants will need to devote 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 and in the role of a manager to set up blocks in a Moodle course. In addition, teacher will have access to the admin settings for courses and user enrollments as managers of a Moodle course and Moodle site. Participants will learn to create tutorials and collaborate with students using Jing, Screencast-o-matic and/or SlideSpeech and authoring tools (Youtube, Vimeo).
In week 1, you will be grouped into teams of 10 or more depending on the number of participants, so you can practice as managers of your own course and create a lesson in the course.
