“Water“, the first of a series of Moodle-usage experiments and demonstrations was recently run with much success. As a result, Tomaz Lasic is now opening the course (and all of the “student” data created within it) for other curious Moodlers to see and engage. It’s a great way to see how the many different configurations of Moodle modules and activities can be used in a successful online (or hybrid/blended) classroom.
According to Tomaz’s invitation,
Most importantly, we hope that this course, and others like it in the future, helps people make the cognitive, personal leap from ‘this is just a piece of software‘ to ‘hey, that’s how I could (use it to) solve the X problem/realize the X idea/make X happen‘.
If you’re interested, Tomaz is also leading an online discussion of the edu-demo site this coming Sunday 5/16 at 6pm EST [Elluminate: http://docs.google.com/View?id=dd4xvd36_215gzvsx6gw].
