TARGET AUDIENCE: Teachers/tutors - beginners or intermediate with Moodle - Lead teachers in departments/centres - anyone wanting to move a little beyond just the skills of just adding files and content etc.

Focus on those interested in course design as well as Moodle skills.

The aim is to provide skills, habits and attitudes to help save time - and help your students to bear more of the load to learn what they need to to meet your course goals.  Ultimately easing the burden of learning on students, teachers (and parents??)

We'd use the Dataview Moodle 2.0 site: http://2011.moodle2.net.nz

PRESENTOR: Derek Chirnside (Christchurch) and others if we have a larger numbers.

Frequently asked questions

  1. What if I am using 1.9? Many of the skills are directly transferrable. But this is a Moodle 2 course.
  2. What if I don't have access to a Moodle site now? We can provide you with one.
  3. What is Moodle?  Hmm.  Check out moodle.org.
  4. I've tried Moodle 2, it's not quite there yet.  Hmm again.  This may be true, but we are taking an optimistic view.  Moodle 2 is pretty good.
