Entrepreneurial teacher, slowly burning YouTube star, and 2015 Mimio blog’s top 20 influencer, Russell Stannard, has published his one “great design trick.” Feel free to skip to the one minute mark…

Get A Sneak Peek At New Features In Moodle 3.1

It is no secrete that there are high expectations around version 3.1 of Moodle that will be coming out later this month. Many have even said that 3.1 is what 3.0 was actually “meant” to be, in terms of new functionality and just general “wow.”

True to form, Moodle has already started creating the documentation for 3.1 and I happened to check out the “New Features” page, currently under development. There are already 20 new features that are slated for showcasing. Click here to follow along.

Creating Infographics With Young Learners

Creating Infographics With Young Learners | Moodle 101 | Scoop.it
Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education, or ASIDE, seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking. Integrating the design of information into the daily conversation is an essential part of the teacher's toolkit and the purpose of the ASIDE blog. The underpinning of innovation and educational design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. ASIDE's goal is to bring together as much information, resources and supportive scholarship in one place for teaching and learning.

Want To Use Moodle As A Teacher? Check Out This Comprehensive Video Guide | Moodle 101 | Scoop.it
If you’re a teacher who has just started with Moodle and are interested in diving deep in Moodle, it may be well worth your time to check out this tutorial by Sali Kaceli.
Conrad Albertson's insight:
-At Assiniboine Community College, the courses are not created automatically. Contact the Centre for Learning Innovation with the full name, course code, category and teachers in your course. -They can  help with much of the advice provided in the video as well. If required, a Gradebook can be setup.
-Teachers provide an enrolment key to their students allowing them to self enrol.
-This video is 3 hours and 16 minutes. It is good, but very long!
