Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | eLearning & Distance Education & Open Learning | Scoop.it

Moodle is a magnificent free product and has the potential to enable schools and teachers to build wonderfully unique interactive online learning courses in which learner interaction can be tracked, measured and responded to. Despite this the vast majority of Moodle courses I see are a long list of Word and PDF documents with at best a few forums that enable a minimum of human social interaction.

Donna Farren's curator insight, August 1, 2014 8:16 AM

Nik makes some great points about Moodle - or really putting any content online - there has to be instructional design training, online teaching training or blended teaching training and how to select content for online delivery.  technical training alone is not enough.

irene's curator insight, August 4, 2014 11:51 PM

Interesting observation - echoes my own experience

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, August 7, 2014 5:40 PM

Problems and possibilities of Moodle (and other similar platforms) outlined by Nik Peachey:

 

* Why Moodle courses often suck?

Not so intuitive platform to work with, lack of teacher training and skills to create online learning material (I agree with these points), excess security issues.

 

* What to do to improve.

 

* Comment about ready-made courses.

There are various problems, for example these often contain little student-teacher or peer interaction. I agree that the ready-made digital material, in my experience, is not very personalisable (and therefore difficult to teach in an inspired way).

 

* How to develop your Moodle skills?

The post gives 9 links to practical video tutorials (how to create a quiz, add a youtube, etc.). There are also free Moodle platforms to practice.

Chris Kenniburg recently posted an update on the Michigan Moodle Theme he’d been showing off. The theme got a name change (to remove Moodle from the title) and he also published a link to the source code at Github: https://github.com/kennibc/moodle-theme_evolved.

 

The theme features all sorts of enhancements to the standard More theme, including a lot of custom options which can be managed by an administrator:

* responsive

* custom login screen

* custom front page option

* Google fonts

* custom logo

* 2 column option

Moodle named most popular LMS for 3rd consecutive time | eLearning & Distance Education & Open Learning | Scoop.it

Capterra, a site to learn more about different software programs, has published its third update to the “Top 20 Most Popular LMS Software” lists this past June and Moodle is once again at the top. The rankings are determined by a weighted score that includes measurement of total users, number of customers, social presence and vendor size.

Social presence and customers play a huge role in the rankings which helps to put Edmodo in the #2 spot above players like Blackboard, Desire2learn, Instructure, Schoology, Sakai and others. ConnectEdu a k12 and higher ed services company (known for their product Epsilen) comes in at number 3, Blackboard at 4, and SumTotal Systems (HR and talent management) is at 5th.
