WizIQ live virtual class is free for educators. It is great for e-learning, conducting meetings and webinars, streaming face-to-face conferences and campus-based classes, preparing videos for the flipped classroom and for blended learning, and as a course management system. The interface comes in 14 languages and it can be customized to suit your needs. I have been using it since 2007 and have never looked back.
Academicians working at K-12 schools, colleges, or universities can avail free Premium membership on WizIQ for delivering live online classes and courses.
Dr. Nellie Deutsch's insight:
WizIQ was quite a hit at the TESOL Dallas conventions as teachers were impressed by the fact that the virtual class was like a real class but with a huge difference. Many teachers are finding students in campus-based classes hard to manage since students are more interested in their cells and in socializing with their friends than in what the teachers have to say. I pointed out that one solution on how to get students engaged and motivated in what the teacher had to say was to give WizIQ live online classes because teachers have more control than in a physical classroom.

The first live workout was awesome. It's not too late to join. In fact, it's the right time. You can view this and the next 7 sessions and the recordings for $15. That's a bargain because you will get an MP3, work sheets to practice and so much more.
The point of the English workout is for you to keep viewing the recordings after the live sessions over and over again in your car, as you jog, and so on on your cell phone, mp3, iPad, android and so on. You do not need to be there for the live event.

Moodle for Teachers (M4T) 2013 EVO online workshop will take place on a Moodle website called Integrating Technology for Active Lifelong Learning (IT4ALL). The aim of the M4T workshop is to provide participants, who have never used Moodle or who would like to enrich their previous Moodle experiences, with the knowledge and skills to navigate a Moodle course, access resources, activities, and blocks from a student perspective and practice the same Moodle features in class practice sections as teachers. The participants will develop a lesson or course on Moodle.
The workshop will include both asynchronous (not dependent on time) and synchronous (time dependent) learning environments. The asynchronous will be conducted on the Moodle and the synchronous learning environment will be conducted on WizIQ (free premium accounts for educators) in the Moodle. Participants will watch tutorials, post to the discussion forums, and practiceMoodle tools with the roles of a student and teacher.
The goal of the M4T EVO 2013 course is to help educators ensure the quality of online learning through systematic instructional design of online and blended online courses (BOL) and instructor training on online pedagogies.
This intensive five-week workshop is designed to engage the participants in theoretical and practical aspects of online learning and teaching with a Learning Management System (LMS) called Moodle. Participants or Moodlers as they are called will be introduced to the Moodle philosophy and course development tools. By successfully completing the program, participants will have acquired the knowledge and skills needed to create basic Moodle resources and activities for blended online learning (BOL) or blended learning (BL) courses. As online learners, participants will understand online learning from the student's perspective so they can prepare their future courses with the learner in mind.
