The Impact Of A Moodle Theme On Learning

The Impact Of A Moodle Theme On Learning | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Moodle is the base of technology-aided learning across schools and universities worldwide. As a result, a large number of developers have flocked to this platform, to contribute their ideas and become a part of the community. The “Moodleverse” today has tons of developers contributing themes and plugins on a regular basis.

Have you ever wondered how these developments could be affecting your end users, the instructors, and enrolled students? As the face of the interaction, choosing a Moodle theme is a task that demands extreme care.

Let us discuss the impact of Moodle themes on learning.

Themes add an attractive, even captivating, look to an LMS. They better the user experience, differentiating it from the otherwise-boring interface of any management system.

Moodle is no different. A good theme will engage your students and help them stay focused, as you will learn in this article.

There are two main factors that affect a theme’s impact on the audience:

1. User Interface (UI)
2. User eXperience (UX)

How Google is disrupting the education system

How Google is disrupting the education system | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Google has unveiled plans to use its Squared Online course to disrupt the education system, as it says it is “successfully” merging classroom and online learning styles, something it claims rival tech firms have failed to do.

“Squared Online bridges the gap between the classic classroom experience, where you can’t get scale, and e-learning that can sometimes be a bit dry. It offers a more experiential learning experience,” says Shuvo Saha, director of the Google Digital Academy.

The course focuses on digital marketing and is split into five modules which look at disruption, how tech is changing businesses, the rise of social and mobile, data analytics and insights.

Squared Online originally began as a face-to-face class, but the tech giant soon realised it needed more scale and so decided to create an online interactive classroom. To do this it collaborated with Avado, a professional coaching company.

This allowed it to move from 30 people attending classes three to four times a year to working with up to 400 people at a time, in a much more collaborative way.

Angélica Potes's curator insight, April 23, 11:52 PM
By the time technology is offeriing new advantages and tools to support the teachers' work, different platforms to develop courses are appearing to facilitate both teaching and learning. To illustrate, a new way to carry out a course with students is moodle which is an area where different resources and activities are added by the teacher for the students to work and to follow a learning process in a specific matter. The moodle course can be a simple web page in which students have the opportunity to download documents or it also can be a more complex number of activities where learning progresses through interaction. The moodle courses are a valuable tool which permit learning not only to be on-site but it also can be from your house without spending too much time. In this article, the 5 things that teachers have to do to create a moodle course the first time are present to take into account and to do a really good job in the creation of the virtual course where students can find the information and support they need to have a successful learning process.

Instructional Designers are trained in the latest cutting edge technologies and are adept at using creative techniques to build custom training solutions. They are known for their passion for learning, along with their writing, researching, and communication skills. They must also be effective project managers and flexible problem solvers. These Instructional Designer skills are necessary but will be insufficient unless they are applied with a “learner first” philosophy, which places the needs of the learner ahead of the presentation of the content in the eLearning course. Here are 3 modern Instructional Designer skills the experts use to focus on the needs of their learner:

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 21, 9:01 AM
MOOCs were first started in 2008, created by George Siemens and Stephen Downs, and was called “Connectivism and Connective Knowledge/2008” or CCK08. It was created as a credit course for the University of Manitoba. CCK08 had 25 students who had paid fees for the course and around 2200 learners who took the course for free. MOOCs really took off in 2012, when Professors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig of Stanford University offered the online course called “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence”. This course had approximately 1,600,000 students participating from 190 countries. After the success of Intro to Artificial Intelligence, Thrun and Nrovig started Udacity, a business model for online knowledge sharing. There are also a few other MOOCs providers, include Coursera and EdX.
