the end of this course, learners will be able to create
an interesting, fun and fully interactive course using Moodle, and the course will guide learners through the process of setting
up a Moodle website, adding and configuring a new course, adding content,
adding multimedia elements and adding fun and engaging learning activities,
that will inspire your students!
course is slightly different to other online courses – the course content and
lessons will be interspersed with the creation of a special exemplar course,
where the skills learnt in the course will be used to build a ready made
interactive Moodle course, which will be available for download too!
I have also added 7 learning activities, so that learners can practice what is being taught in the course, and these learning activities add up to create another exemplar course, which is also downloadable.
There will also be topical quizzes at the end
of each section to ensure that learners understand the lessons and to reinforce
The course is split into 8 sections, and begins with
Getting to know Moodle, so what Moodle is, how to navigate around the VLE, and some of the common areas such as the
dashboard, and profile settings.
Learners will be shown how to create their own Moodle site, via the
Moodle cloud, as well as configuring a new course page and explanations of the
various Moodle course formats, with their advantages and disadvantages.
Adding resources and activities to the Moodle page will also be
covered, with activities such as lessons, choices and wikis. Resources such as books, pages, files and
lessons will also be looked at.
two sections of the course are called Adding Multimedia - teaching learners how
to add videos, audio clips and images to the course, and Putting it all
Together - a section on making your Moodle course flow and shows learners how
to restrict access to learning activities and use activity completion to
produce meaningful student engagement reports.
each video lesson, there will be a downloadable paper guide which learners can
print to create their very own Moodle user manual!
I introduce each lesson with a description, and follow this up by showing learners how to actually do it for yourself. I actively encourage learners to watch the examples lessons, where examples are shown of all the topics covered within the section. I also encourage participants to use the Moodle Cloud course, that we create at the beginning, to practice the things I teach, and build up their confidence and their own set of Moodle courses.
