What if we could give a Moodle site with the goal of creating environmental awareness curriculum and content $250,000 just with a few clicks? Well we can. Dave Dannenburg posted to Moodle.org this weekend that his Moodle site had entered itself into Pepsi’s Refresh Challenge, which is giving over 1,000,000 dollars a month to up-start initiatives that give back to the community, either through education or awareness in areas of the environment, local neighborhoods, education, food, arts and health.
Dave’s Moodle site, ConservationTraining.org, is working to provide curriculum to the public on environmental conservation (the courses will be delivered and shared through Moodle) and is affiliated with the Nature Conservancy (http://www.nature.org/). According to the site,
ConservationTraining is an open university for sharing the world’s best and most recent conservation-based training materials from some of the world’s most respected agencies.
Content for Moodle that could help save the world? Sounds good to me. ConservationTraining.org is currently in ~300th place, but it’s out of 1200 so it’s near the top. Help out by going to http://www.refresheverything.com/contrain and voting.
Disclosure: Moodlenews or it’s writers have no affiliation with Pepsi, The Nature Conservancy or Conservation Training.
