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.

This class will focus on reflecting on the 4 live online classes and going beyond the current MOODLE MOOC for active lifelong learning. It isn't enough to create and engage students in the content, with the facilitators and peers, we want students to go beyond our classes, schools, and countries. We are global citizens with a mission to carry on what we started in this and other MOOCs. We can make this world a better place now and in the future through learning together. Let's promote relationship-based social collaborative teamwork worldwide.

In the final session of the MOOC, John Graves, a Ph.D student studying open source software development at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand and the development of a voice-enabled interfaces for chatterbot dialog using Python, will discuss Slidespeech .

Dr. Maria Droujkova, the developer of the Math Future Network community and a guru on homeschooling, will share Moebius Noodles and the first book of a series that you can download.

Teaching with Moodle is a self-paced and 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

There will be 5 live online classes. The live online synchronous classes will take place on WizIQ on Saturdays at 10 AM (EST). Please check your time zone (June 1) for the exact time. Recordings will be available.
Participants will engage with the facilitator, each other, and the content. For further information, please contact Dr. Nellie Deutsch.
