3 Cutting Edge Strategies for Training on Moodle

3 Cutting Edge Strategies for Training on Moodle | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it

Until recently, the field of e-learning has been relatively slow to take off because too much attention was paid to the exploration of technical possibilities while ignoring the area of application. Well, developers have realized their mistake and made the platform more transparent and user-friendly.


Moodle has emerged as the over-whelming leader in the e-learning platform and management system field. It is free to download, features open-source software and does not come attached with any licensing costs or requirements.


If you’ve decided to get your organization to jump on the e-learning bandwagon, how do you make sure that you’re getting the most of your Moodle platform? Because Moodle is feature-rich, the platform can sometimes be difficult and time-consuming to learn. No only this, but due to the ever-changing nature of virtual learning platforms, staying up-to-date on how to use the platform requires an ongoing learning process.

Why is Moodle the Best LMS? - EdTechReview™ (ETR)

Why is Moodle the Best LMS? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it

Moodle (acronym for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is an open source Learning Management System (LMS ) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE ). It is rising in popularity among the educators around the world, as a tool for creating dynamic websites for students. It is open source, since it is customizable, has no contracts or user costs to pay and is widely available for free use. It can be efficiently integrated with your management system and allows you to support personalized learning, which is effective even outside the classroom and encourages the involvement of the broader community of the institution.


Moodle has constantly maintained its top spot among the LMS tools and has been ranked 11th overall among the top 100 tools for learning in 2013 . Many factors have contributed to Moodle being highly successful. On top of being a great LMS, it is also free to use. Teachers can teach their own online courses using this and find it stable and easy to use and being customizable, it fits to its user’s needs with ease.

 

 Moodle has several advantages over other LMSs, here’s the list of a few:


- It is an open source learning platform, which is utilized by millions of people worldwide. This open source nature allows anybody to tinker with its code or add new things. Users can share changes with the Moodle community for others to use for free. All this leads to the extension and reformation of the software.

- It makes use of simple technologies, as a result of which its developers are easy to find.

- It is built on some of the most reliable technologies, such as PHP, MySQL, Apache.

- It has a fully cooperative development model which offers constant scope for improvement by allowing many high quality contributions to acquire new modules, features and enhancements.

- It makes use of the more advanced programming approach, the object-oriented programming which makes its functionality all the more efficient and allows users to proceed at their own pace, as well as customize it according to their needs.

- It focuses on making the learning and teaching experience constructivist. This process encourages the involvement of learners in the learning process, rather than letting them receive knowledge passively. The learning environment becomes more democratic with interactive and student-centered activities.

- It is convenient for educational institutions and organizations for learning and course management.

- It can be quickly deployed in your organization, without the requirement of any extra efforts.

- It is highly cost-effective, since it has a low risk startup and a low initial investment.

- It provides you with fast and reliable updates of information.

- It provides you with regular support, all the time you use it. Its support feature is active twenty four hours a day, seven days a week and addresses to its developers, members and users.

Moodle 3.2 boosts online learning with improved user experience - Moodle.com

Moodle 3.2 boosts online learning with improved user experience - Moodle.com | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it

A fresh new user experience, industry-leading media player, user tours to guide learners and educators through their learning environments, and new messaging and notifications functions for better communications are just some of the ways Moodle is improving online education.


Today, Moodle – the world’s open source learning platform – released the latest version of its software – Moodle 3.2, now available for downloading on moodle.org.


The new release has been developed with a strong focus on enhancing accessibility and user experience, based on feedback and support from global Moodle users, Moodle Partners and the Moodle community.


Dr Martin Dougiamas, Moodle founder and CEO of Moodle Pty Ltd, commented on the many new and exciting features in Moodle 3.2 that are improving accessibility and user experience.


“Firstly, I’m thrilled to introduce Boost, which marks a new direction for how Moodle looks and functions,” said Dougiamas.


“We have implemented this as an optional Moodle theme for now, so it won’t stop anyone keeping their old theme.”


“The changes are not too radical, so long-time Moodle users will learn it quickly, but they give Moodle sites a fresh, new appearance that aligns with many websites and apps that you might be familiar with.”


“With that comes better navigation, configuration and more space on your screen for important course content. We really hope the community enjoys it, and help us refine it further in releases to come.”


“We’ve also designed some great improvements to messaging and notifications, sponsored by our good friends at University of Minnesota, that make it easier to keep in touch with your course and fellow participants, no matter what device you are using,” commented Dougiamas.


“A new user tours feature, sponsored by Dublin City University, allows Moodle users to create walkthroughs that will bring engaging and informative experiences in their Moodle sites.”


“Some other major features include an industry-leading media player plugin, which includes full support for captions and subtitles, and fancy interactive report graphics and a lot more.”


In response to the increasing use of mobile devices globally to access learning online, Moodle 3.2 features are also compatible through the Moodle Mobile App.

Learn To Teach With Moodle: The MOOC Returns

Learn To Teach With Moodle: The MOOC Returns | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it
The best opportunity to join the Moodleverse, a digital community that fosters self-actualization for Open Source technologists/teachers, begins right out of the gate in 2017. Starting January 2nd, the “Moodle Fairy”, and Moodle HQ Community Educator, Mary Cooch, will welcome thousands of amateurs and experts alike on the biannual “Learn Moodle MOOC” as we all learn the ropes of Moodle, from setting it up to content and activity creation.

Previous instances of the Massive Online Open Course have a no-requirements, practical approach in which users get to create their own courses which they can develop and share with anyone.

Expert Moodlers have joined the course in the past to freshen up on their Moodle skills and learn new tricks. This has proven valuable for newcomers, and for the experts themselves, who find a place of high quality networking. This time, the benefit is higher, as the MOOC will detail the recently launched Moodle 3.2, a complete rethinking of Moodle as a learning experience that comes with a number of new features and tools. As and additional bonus, this next round will be an improvement thanks to the heightened community engagement approach taken by Cooch and her team.

La version 3.1 de Moodle est accompagnée d'un ensemble de plugins qui peuvent aider l'étudiant à développer certaines compétences (auto-évaluation, sélection de cours, mise en œuvre de portfolio) et l'enseignant favoriser l'acquisition de ces compétences. Il faut à présent que les organismes qui utilisent Moodle choisissent :
- de migrer vers Moodle 3.1 sans trop tarder
- d'implémenter ces plugins après concertation avec les enseignants
