Moodle MOOC on WizIQ Tasks
Subject: Tasks for Moodle MOOC on WizIQ for June 2013
Message: Dear Members of Moodle MOOC on WizIQ,
Congratulations on doing an awesome job asking questions in week 1. Hope you got some answers, too.
Many participants have been anxious to know what's ahead so here are the tasks for weeks 1-4. You may access them on the interactive syllabus and ask questions or add comments on the syllabus.
Tasks for Weeks 1-4: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-yrsOH1uHYdqJqvfYHjQ-KDszWkOp_dyOYphLPAoSNc/edit#heading=h.so6a5xl84772
Task for Week 1
Questions are important to learning. I follow the KWHL method of acquiring information. The idea behind the method is for participants to learn about what they know and decide what they wish to learn.
You will create a chart and plot what you know, what you want to learn, how and where you will get the information, and summarize what you learned. You then go back and list what you know, what you would still want to learn and so on. Learning is ongoing and so is the KWHL process.
Please share the task for week 1 here: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=74
You may do it during week 2 or work at your own pace. Here's a tutorial for the task for week one and how your're going to work throughout the course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HWrRSsx9XIU
Task for Week 2
In week 2, participants will learn about and create engaging activities for other teachers in the MOOC. Please team up and learn about your fellow Moodlers' students and how to create engaging activities for them. The task for week 2 is to demonstrate the activity you learned in real time. Yes, you will be teaching and recording/video tapping yourself as you do. This is not an "about" task. It is the real thing. You may work in teams and co-teach the activity.

Task for Week 3
In week 3, participants will learn about and demonstrate how to teach and learn online. The task of the week is to conduct a literature study on teaching and learning online. Participants will create an interactive digital artifact of their findings.

Task for Week 4
In week 4, participants will explore and teach in a live virtual class using the WizIQ plugin activity directly from Moodle. Here’s a video tutorial on WizIQ activity on the Moodle and how to schedule and teach a virtual class. You may practise using the WizIQ plugin activity in the following Moodle course called WizIQ Practice Area. Here’s more about WizIQ plugin activity on Moodle.
Participants will also be able to schedule a WizIQ activity on the managers course (M4M).
The task of the final week is to schedule a live class, add content, teach, and share the recording for feedback from the participants. You may invite friends and colleagues to your session.
