”The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.”
– Carl Rodgers
The aforementioned quote rightly suffices the problem arising in prevalent education system. We have been cultivating ourselves since the early 19th century to use the ever changing and advancing technology. We have witnessed a revolution of “doing things” the novel way, which is through the use of technology but it is sad to know that our teaching or educating methods are still the traditional practices of a chalkboard inside the four walls of a classroom.
People certainly make use of the information available over the internet but there is lack of creativity in the teaching methods. It has been found that students lack interest in lectures over long periods of time, feel anxious to put forward their views/opinions, are hesitant to even ask a question and the list extends on, this results into confused behavior and leads up to long hours of surfing of questions over the vast internet that are left unanswered. So what is the ultimate solution? There are no “un–answers” here. MOODLE is the ultimate answer to all students’ as well as teachers’ worries.
Moodle provides a great platform to aid in moving education online. But as with any new and disruptive technology, some people – teachers and students alike – are reluctant to adopt and even embrace it. However, there are ways to increase user confidence so that they can explore the software and in turn gain maximum value from it.
The article presents 3 ways to convince those who are reluctant or hesitant to embrace Moodle, through improving Moodle user experience so that it can be more educational, informative and care-free.
I spent some time this summer investigating the potential use of badges in my courses for the coming fall, 2013 semester. I realize that some students will embrace this concept and others will not. I thought it appropriate to provide an overview of the process of working with earned badges on this weblog. In subsequent posts, I will explain some the the technology behind the scenes.
Moodle filters make it possible to automatically transform your content before output or display. For example, filters make it possible for links to media files to be converted automatically into applets for playing the media, they can render embedded equations into images, can convent glossary terms automatically into links and many other things. There is no limit to the number of things that can be achieved using filters.
Recently, Moodle Mobile 1.10 was launched that brought a lot of innovative and new features like simple navigation, ability to sync when you have a wifi connection and a lot of other fixes.
However, there are lots of other features, fixes and improvements of Moodle Mobile 1.10 that is a great mobile application. Moreover, this high-end application’s messaging interface got an upgrade, making it look more modern similar to applications such as Telegram and Whatsapp. On your android, Windows or iOS device, you can give it a go by downloading the application.
Mobile cloud learning, a combination of mobile learning and cloud computing, is a relatively new concept that holds considerable promise for future development and delivery in the education sectors. Cloud computing helps mobile learning overcome obstacles related to mobile computing. The main focus of this paper is to explore how cloud computing changes traditional mobile learning. A case study of the usage of Moodle in the cloud via mobile learning in Khalifa University was conducted.
At Moodle, we aim to be the best tool for supporting education in any environment, with an emphasis on accessibility. As a free open source product, users can download direct from our site to experience the features of Moodle, or use one of the demo sites.
To experience the features, design and capability of Moodle in the latest version, you can enter one of our two sites. Choose to explore Moodle in action with Mount Orange School or play with Moodle’s standard features in sandbox. Both sites are reset to their blank state every hour, on the hour, which allows anyone to alter, add, remove items in the platform and return to a clean slate every sixty minutes.
Here are the steps I went through (along with screen captures).In Illustrator, I created a new file with a single artboard. I really didn’t care that much about the size as I wanted to have something which would be roughly 150 x 150 pixels as a finished product. I just needed room to work. The end result is shown below. Note that it is a lot larger than the actual badges.
An attempt to create a better *PLE (personalized learning environment), drawing on the established editing game logic, for Moodle, is the aim of this project. The main underpinning principle includes activities and resources which are selected automatically by the computer and shown to the student.
PLE (personalized learning environment) enables students to make progress at their own pace (affording achievement and/or attainment).Gaming involves advancing across a game whereby there is a sense of choice, freedom and control for the player. This means the learner has an opportunity to progress along individual learning trajectories at their own pace and chosen level/pitch.
The following table highlights the relationship between key definitions and gaming for learning and teaching with Moodle.
The open source Office 365 and Microsoft Services plugins for Moodle include integration with OneDrive for Business, OneNote and Office 365 Outlook calendar. The integration allows students and instructors, as well as enterprise users, to sign on to Moodle with the same ID, making single sign-on easier and faster for education institutions and other Moodle users with Office 365 accounts. In addition, events created in Moodle will be stored in teachers' and students' personal Office 365 calendars, enabling them to easily track course events and due dates. Previously, instructors needed to update their Outlook calendars manually, or send event invitations separately to students.
In conjunction with Bryan Smith, Chris Kenniburg and the funders, The REMC organization of Michigan, we have just completed phase 1 of development for an exciting new Social Learning course format.
The Moodle plugin is called “eCommunity” and will transform the collaboration and sharing of knowledge within a course. Delivering this vision required a significant amount of planning, time and funding, which took over two years to secure.
