Content Authoring for Moodle

Overview

This is a hands on course aimed at teachers already fluent and comfortable with using the Moodle Platform for learning. We believe that designing learning is not about technology but about pedagogy. The online learning environment is different – opening new opportunities but also closing some that came with the physical classroom. In this course, we will explore in details how an LMS like Moodle, if used effectively can change the learning culture of your students. We will discuss some of the new content authoring tools that make learning participatory and collaborative. You will learn to use some of the tools to build your course.

Completing the Course will help you:

  • Understand online pedagogy
  • Understand the dynamics of online learning on a platform like Moodle
  • Become a producer of your own content.
