Nives' endeavours as an English Teacher

Moodle Mooc 9

Leave a comment

It’s the first day of November, 2016 which also marks the beginning of another Moodle training chapter in the Moodle4Teachers program of courses. The MM9 has been organized totally by Dr Nellie Deutsch and will be co-moderated by Tom Hodgers and Ramesh Sharma.

Exactly you might rightly ask just what does a Moodle Mooc entail…well, firstly it’s all about learning how to use the moodle in conjunction with live virtual meetings commonly referred to as Webinars. The Moodle platform is constantly being updated and is perhaps the most equipped platform to create self paced courses, with tracking mechanisms that keep the course participant on the right path.

Teaching and Learning do go hand in hand – as a Teacher should know – that in order to be in the forefront of modern teaching methodology then the Teacher must be a constant dedicated life long learner. Some may beg to differ … please do and leave your comments below, thank you.

The Moodle Mooc is a free normally 4-5 week course with varied activities and opportunites to actively participate in course creation within the ‘practice’ areas of the Moodle site on the Moodle4Teachers by Integrating Technology. This year we will be ‘playing’ on the newest version of the Moodle 3.1 with over 100 professionals from around the globe. But there’s room for more so if you’re keen to learn and can devote 2 hours a week then come and join us here!  You can easily join by clicking on one of the social media buttons and voila you will be a participant in less time than it takes to make a cup of tea.

See you there!

Below is an example of what the moodle looks like and my haphazard navigation…
