Moodle for Teachers (M4T) is a free online course that takes place on a Moodle website called Moodle for Teachers (M4T). Participants will be able to participate in live online classes and view the recordings from the Moodle session area. The aim of the M4T workshop is to provide participants, who have never used Moodle or who would like to enrich their previous Moodle experiences, with the knowledge and skills to navigate a Moodle course, access resources, activities, and blocks from a student perspective and practice the same Moodle features in practice areas as teachers and managers of a Moodle course. The participants will develop a lesson in teams in a Moodle course of their own.
