mLearning: The Way of Learning Tomorrow

mLearning: The Way of Learning Tomorrow | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it
Mobile devices have become deeply engrained in our everyday lives. From reading to schedule management to entertainment to GPS, it is The Multi-Purpose Gadget in our lives and some have even said to suffer from the “phantom limb” syndrome without it! Mobile Learning, or mLearning for short, lets learners learn and get performance support via their mobile devices. This article introduces to you the unique features of mLearning, what it can be used for and the difference between mLearning and traditional eLearning.

What are Moodle Filters? | Moodle Tuts

What are Moodle Filters? | Moodle Tuts | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

Moodle filters are a way to automatically transform content before it is output. 

 

Filters are a way to automatically transform content before it is output. For example

- render embedded equations to images (the TeX filter)

- Links to media files can be automatically converted to an embedded applet for playing the media.

- Mentions of glossary terms can be automatically converted to links.

 

The possibilities are endless. There are a number of standard filters included with Moodle, or you can create your own. Filters are one of the easiest types of plugin to create. This page explains how

JISC RSC > City College Plymouth: Setting the standard with Moodle Medals

JISC RSC > City College Plymouth: Setting the standard with Moodle Medals | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

The TEL IT team at City College Plymouth have successfully developed a set of standards for courses within their Moodle VLE (virtual learning environment).  Using a Bronze, Silver and Gold award-based model they have successfully enhanced the quality of materials, resources and content of courses.

The quality framework provided through Moodle Medals is helping teaching staff to work towards a much more structured approach to their courses, which provides students with a much better learning platform and repository of interactive resources.

.....

The medals have made teaching staff more interested in developing their courses to a minimum standard and beyond.  This in part has been encouraged due to introducing a competitive aspect to the medals.  This means that staff are more involved and interested in gaining awards.  In addition, Adam Harvey, Learning Technology Managerthe introduction of the medals has set a benchmark for this department, which is attractive for senior management teams

Students are getting much more out of the VLE and their courses through Moodle, especially if their courses have gained a silver rating, which contains more interactive resources and materials.  It has provided a more immersive environment and one in which students can be more engaged with.

As a direct result of the introduction of Moodle Medals, some teaching staff now deliver all their teaching exclusively through Moodle, an unexpected outcome for the TEL IT team.

162 Page Moodle Manual from @HowtoMoodle

162 Page Moodle Manual from @HowtoMoodle | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

Here’s a 162 page resource compiled by Moodle Partner HowtoMoodle that covers a host of need to know Moodle processes for course creation and management in 2.5. Within the pages of Course Creator Essential 2.5 are easy keys to help you understand what you’re looking at (which view, if it’s an admin setting, etc.) and loads of information on anything from course creation, to specific use of various activities to conditional activities. While much of this information is available within the Moodle docs, this resource has helped to distill the information into one easy to access, free PDF that you can share with colleagues or just keep handy.

This past Sunday the Moodle tracker (Atlassian JIRA) was upgraded by Moodle HQ. Version 6.2 of the software includes Jira Capture (a screenshot plugin that works with Jira and your internet browser) and easier to use interfaces without having to frequently reload pages.

 

The most easily noticeable feature though is the theme upgrade consistent with Moodle.org’s new look and feel.
