The Overselling of Ed Tech

Show me something that helps kids create, design, produce, construct — and I’m on board. Show me something that helps them make things collaboratively (rather than just on their own), and I’m even more interested — although it’s important to keep in mind that meaningful learning never requires technology, so even here we should object whenever we’re told that software (or a device with a screen) is essential.

Use The Availability Conditions Plugin To Control Moodle Mobile Content

Use The Availability Conditions Plugin To Control Moodle Mobile Content | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
If your Moodle site does not already allow access via the Moodle Mobile app, you’re not alone, but your students and teachers are missing out on a tool that can create serious advantages.

One reason some teachers and administrators haven’t pushed for mobile is the concern about losing control of both content and student/teacher relationship. To address this, Moodle HQ has several solutions. Foremost, Moodle has continued to unify the interface experience on both a desktop browser and Moodle Mobile.

Moodle has also created the Availability Conditions Plugin, which gives further control to what students can and cannot do on mobile. Once installed, administrators are provided a suite of new options that allow them to set restrictions on Moodle Activities, for defined rules and scenarios. Any given Activity can be set as also available, exclusively available, or unavailable from mobile. Simultaneous restrictions are possible, according to dates, student grades and user fields, or groups, for instance.

The man behind Moodle: A leader of online learning

The man behind Moodle: A leader of online learning | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Online education pioneer Dr Martin Dougiamas is best known for a noble act: his rejection of a $20-million offer for his open-source education platform which he wanted to keep freely available.

Dougiamas, 47, who runs the learning management system Moodle, which is used by the UN and Google, downplays his sacrifice. "It just happens to be a little thing that seems to capture people's attention," he says.

On whether he regrets shunning the money, he says: "No, absolutely not." Had he taken the cash, Moodle would have been destroyed – taken out of the equation, he says.

"So, Moodle – it's my life's work. It's what I'm passionate about," he says, describing education as "super-important".

His enterprise operates in a spirit of iteration rather than disruption. "Sometimes it's about refining what you've got – making it solid and making it really work," he says, adding that he is still tweaking the initial ideas for Moodle that date back 15 years, because the basics remain the same.

"In education you're dealing with human brains, and human brains don't change a lot – we still learn the same way as we have for thousands of years," he says.
