Moodle for Teachers (M4T) 2013 EVO online workshop will take place on a Moodle website called Integrating Technology for Active Lifelong Learning (IT4ALL). 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 class practice sections as teachers. The participants will develop a lesson or course on Moodle.


The workshop will include both asynchronous (not dependent on time) and synchronous (time dependent) learning environments. The asynchronous will be conducted on the Moodle and the synchronous learning environment will be conducted on WizIQ (free premium accounts for educators) in the Moodle. Participants will watch tutorials, post to the discussion forums, and practice Moodle tools with the roles of a student and teacher.



The goal of the M4T EVO 2013 course is to help educators ensure the quality of online learning through systematic instructional design of online and blended online courses (BOL) and instructor training on online pedagogies.



This intensive five-week workshop is designed to engage the participants in theoretical and practical aspects of online learning and teaching with a Learning Management System (LMS) called Moodle. Participants or Moodlers as they are called will be introduced to the Moodle philosophy and course development tools. By successfully completing the program, participants will have acquired the knowledge and skills needed to create basic Moodle resources and activities for blended online learning (BOL) or blended learning (BL) courses. As online learners, participants will understand online learning from the student's perspective so they can prepare their future courses with the learner in mind.

M4T EVO 2013 requires participants to be active at least 10 hours a week on theoretical and practical aspects of online learning (individually and in teams). Participants will learn about resources, activities, and blocks as students and practice the role of a teacher in setting up resources and activities. In addition, teacher will have access to the admin settings for courses and for user enrolments.


Participants will be actively involved in the course. The tasks involved creating video tutorials. Participants will learn to use screensharing (jing, screen-o-matic, present me, screenr) and authoring tools (Youtube, Vimeo, Bliptv, Vocaroo)


Screensharing tools for tutorials.
