Multi-tasking
Technology is making multi-tasking easier and easier, but is there a price? How does multitasking affect learning? Is it overloading our brains or does it help develop skills necessary for effective learning?

I'd like you to think of the Moodle MOOC on WizIQ: http://www.wiziq.com/course/20705-teaching-with-moodle as an event that is taking place in a city or town, at a hotel, campus, in a building, in a neighborhood, or at a park/camping area. You may share images of how you visualize the Moodle MOOC.

You don't have to drive or walk from room to room, building to building or house to house. All you need to do is click, touch, push a button, use the keyboard, or give your computer or mobile device a voice or gesture command (if you have these). However, you will need to have access to the Internet and to a device to get you to the learning environments.

In week 1, you will be getting acquainted with each other, the layout of the course, and learning about your personal and professional needs as a learner and teacher. 

There are 3 main learning environments on the MOOC:

WizIQ with the courseware for the live online sessions and recordings, for the content (tutorials) and coursefeed for ongoing discussions during and after the MOOC). Google Drive (interactive syllabus is also available on WizIQ)
Moodle experience is available on http://moodle4teachers.org/ with 3 separate Moodle experience courses and conversations (see below) organized for each of the weeks (topics of Moodle MOOC)
Moodle practice for teacher role, manager role, and administrator role is available on http://www.integrating-technology.com/moodle 
You are invited to join the conversations on the frontpage of moodle4teachers.org:

Conversation on Moodle Layout (Activities, Resources, Blocks):http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?f=17
Conversation on Creating Engaging Activities: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?f=18

Conversation on Going Beyond the Moodle MOOC for Active Lifelong Learning:http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?f=21
Finally, an upgraded version of the recording of the opening ceremony is now available for downloading and viewing.
