At the end of June, the Virtual Learning Center is offering two new, but very different, Moodle workshops. One is a half-day session for those who work the back end of the course management system, the other is a full day workshop for teachers who will utilize Moodle in their classrooms.
Moodle 2.0 Administrator Training
June 19 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. $75 CSD member; $89 non-member
This 3-hour, hands-on, bring your own device session is for the Moodle administrator(s) at your organization. This workshop will address the Moodle 2.0 settings that are pertinent to K-12 institutions, allowing each organization to provide the features and security they deem necessary. We will recommend settings for security considerations, restrictions, conveniences, and appearance. Management of files and users will also be addressed.
Moodle 2.0 Basics Training for Teachers
June 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; $149 CSD member; $189 non-member
Heard of Moodle, but aren’t sure how to use it to its fullest advantage? New to the latest version of Moodle? This workshop is for you! Find out what this powerful course management system is, how to use it as the one-stop website for your class, and how to get your own for free. Learn the new enhancements of the latest version of Moodle and have an opportunity to see how other teachers are using it. Try your hand at setting up various features of Moodle and practice developing your own course. Lots of hands-on time will be provided to create a sample workshop and organize it. (Just a note: no prior knowledge of Moodle required, but if you are familiar with Moodle 1.9, you can still benefit by attending and learning about Moodle 2.0).
Neither workshop has graduate credit associated with it.
