The WCEL Team are excited about the first Moodle MOOC starting this month. This is a FREE online course designed for anyone who wants to learn about using Moodle with others from around the world.
Designed to provide a good foundation and context to Moodle, the course covers the basics of the open source (and free!) learning platform, including how to set up and effectively use Moodle in teaching. Visit http://learn.moodle.net/ for more information
Early Monday morning (NZ time) was the live course launch - listen to the recording to hear the founder and lead developer of Moodle, Martin Dougiamas, talk about the history and educational theories behind Moodle. About 18 minutes into the recording the course facilitator, Mary, explains how the course works and your tasks for Week 1.
