Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | Technology in Education | 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.

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, Today, 2:16 AM

Nik gives some very useful insights and some practical ideas for developing online materials. He has a focus on Moodle, but the ideas relate to any online learning platform.

Donna Farren's curator insight, Today, 5:16 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.

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 29, 6:13 PM

Have you considered a different option? What about a block graphic calculator? This now a common way to teach coding, having students connect blocks together to build code. Blockly has a free online block calculator that provides math (a portion of the options are shown in the image), variables and logic. To the left side of the coding is the graphing calculator.

This type of calculator may help visual learners who may more easily create formulas through the use of blocks. Check it out at Blockly.

Unlikely, but we can…
