About the class
This webinar is hosted in English
You are invited to join the the first Moodle MOOC of its kind hosted by WizIQ and organized by Dr. Nellie Deutsch.
The current session will focus on creating engaging activities on Moodle and beyond for meaningful lifelong learning. The guest speaker is Dave Cormier .
Dave is an educational activist, researcher, online community advocate and the Manager of Web Communications and Innovations at the University of Prince Edward Island.
Dave has published on open education, Rhizomatic Learning, MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), Digital Identity, and practical classroom uses of virtual worlds.
Dave will talk about "One Moodle activity - an experiment in rhizomatic learning"
The talk will explore rhizomatic learning as a story for learning on the open web and then talk about one activity that tries to marry the advantages of Moodle with those of the more rhizomatic open web.
Teaching with Moodle is a self-paced 4-week Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for teachers and anyone interested in teaching online using Moodle, WizIQ, and other web technologies. The course will take place in the month of June 2013. The MOOC is in the spirt of open education and is completely free.
Participants will become acquainted with Moodle as a course and learning management system. They will learn how Moodle can be used in fully online, blended learning, and the flipped class. The course will include both asynchronous (not dependent on time) and synchronous (time dependent) elements. The course is self-paced with ongoing discussions (facilitator and technical support available), live online classes (recordings), videos, and other relevant content.
Unlike the traditional MOOCs that stress content and course delivery, Moodle MOOC will focus on active learning, reflection, sharing, and collaboration. The aim of the course is for the participants to learn through meaningful connections and social interactions. The MOOC and the live online classes will be moderated by Dr. Nellie Deutsch
and facilitated by Dr. Nancy Zingrone, Dr. Ramesh Sharma,
and Judith Behrens (doctoral student).
Participants will be able to ask questions in advance and throughout the course through the following google drive document.
The live online classes will be recorded for future reference, so don't worry if you cannot attend or if you'd like to review the content.Live Online Classes on WizIQ
