Using Moodle for Corporate Training - Super Moodle

Using Moodle for Corporate Training - Super Moodle | LEC: Learn Engage Create | Scoop.it

Is it really worth all the effort, to implement using Moodle for corporate training? Moodle is one of the top LMS designs out there, stealing the top of LMS lists dependably enough. It's a good system, with a lot of rich features, extended integration, and its open source nature means that its features are clinically limitless.

SAMR: Augmenting your Creativity and Amplifying your Curiosity - TechChef | LEC: Learn Engage Create | Scoop.it

"While there has been a bit of question as to the effectiveness of SAMR, a shift to move beyond SAMR, and a few proposed changes to the structure of the model floating around online, I have to say that hearing Dr. Ruben Puentedura (you may know him as the father of SAMR) speak at iPad Summit a few weeks ago still felt like a rare app-ortunity and a truly inspiring treat. As I am still collecting my thoughts and ideas from the event, I wanted to share some really great resources from the Dr. SAMR. "

I'll describe and rationalize all of the sections and line items below, but you can also download the checklist as a simple, 1-page PDF. I try to keep it simple with 3 basic ratings: (1) Green Check = Good/Pass, (2) Red Check = Needs work, but no disaster, (3) Red X = Bad/Fail. Not all points are necessarily applicable to all sites.
