Teaching with Moodle MOOC

After an aborted attempt in September, I recently completed the Teaching with Moodle MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), also known as Learn Moodle MOOC.

Since Moodle is the learning management system employed at KIST, the course was directly applicable to my work. I also made the effort of inviting colleagues to join in hopes of recruiting a cohort that might be able to learn together. Two people joined an we enjoyed sharing our learning and insights into how the course content could be directly applied in our own contexts.

Naturally, the course itself was delivered via Moodle, and they even have a handy mobile app. It provides a well designed examplar with high quality demonstration videos and useful links everywhere.

The content itself was the Moodle training I never received. Organized logically from general to specific, yet also conceptually from delivery to interaction, it is an ideal way to become familiar and proficient with Moodle.

I would recommend the Teaching with Moodle MOOC to anyone curious about the platform, and particularly to my colleagues who would discover rich possibilities for connected learning in their classes.
