Moodle_UK's curator insight, June 22, 2013 8:52 AM

Useful discussion about the fifferences and possible uses of the Lssson tool vs the Quiz tool and a consideration of the Book resource including Glenys Hanson's useful suggestions for using Book

Jasmin Hodge's curator insight, June 23, 2013 2:46 PM

Useful to help engage staff, the great examples and explanation of differences between activitites help, especially when contextualised.  I hope to 'relaunch' all Moodle activities to staff through 5/10 minute webinars using our upgrade as the opportunity.

Decaf 1.8, updated theme for Moodle 2.4+

Decaf 1.8, updated theme for Moodle 2.4+ | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

The Decaf theme created by Lei Zhang was one of my favorites to hit Moodle 2.x due to the non-Moodle look and feel, and ease of use with heads up Administrative settings in the top navigation it brought to the LMS.  Recently the theme was updated for Moodle 2.4+ by Lei Zhang and Paul Nicholls it has some pretty slick new options and features:

 

- use mod chooser tiles: a new look at the activity and resource picker which uses tiled icons (larger) rather than the small icons with text

- updated Moodle icon set

- revised admin settings page

- bug fixes and other minor enhancements

Beyond the Classroom: A New Digital Education for Young Australians in the 21 st Century

The new digital education environment will look and function very differently. In addition to classroom teaching, staff will develop new ways of teaching that embrace digital education, and ‘bring your own device’ learning models will be integrated into the learning environment. Strong leadership in schools will be needed to support this new environment, to increase teacher capacity and to support the uptake of digital education in schools.

This is brilliant. Download the Spreadsheet and enable macros. Write in your list of definitions and explanations and then run the maro to save as an .xml file.

 

Import the .xml file to a Blank glossary you have made already.
