Moodle MOOC 7 (MM7) will start on November 1, 2015 on Moodle for Teachers. The theme of the current MOOC is collaborative learning, reflective practice, connecting online for instruction and learning, and peace through online learning.
The MOOC will focus on connecting online for collaborative learning and teaching through Moodle, Google Drive Docs, blogs, Google Apps, Mobile Devices, Virtual Classes, and other online learning environments for face-to-face, blended, and fully online learning. In addition, participants will learn to use Movenote, Screencast-o-matic, PresentMe, SlideSpeech, Plotagon, Smore, Quizlet, eMaze, Slideshare and other technologies for effective and engaging student-based activities. The live presentations will include the speakers’ reflective process on teaching and learning in fully online and blended learning formats.
Moodle MOOC 7 (MM7) is suitable for new and advanced Moodlers. The courses will be asynchronous (Moodle) and synchronous (WizIQ) with recordings on WizIQ (class link), YouTube (see playlist), and Vimeo (see playlist).
There will be two learning areas: WizIQ course area and Moodle for Teachers (M4T) Moodle website. 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. Participants who wish to receive a certificate of participation will be required to document their learning experiences by keeping a blog, wiki, website, or any other artifact that will include a description and reflection of the live sessions and/or recordings.
