Moodlenews was contacted by UoPeople (@UoPeople) volunteer coordinator yesterday, the fledgling but growing open educational organization is seeking a Moodle course developer to help them build their College Algebra course as soon as possible. The course starts in September so there’s no time to waste!
Updated 8/18 @ 9:56am EST: Please note that the content is already created. This volunteer will work with the existing content (in Word format) and will upload and adapt it to a fully functional Moodle-based curriculum.
The course is a standard College Algebra Course – based on an open textbook.
There are 8 study units. Each has a Learning Guide (Book-type resource), Reading Assignment (textbook and other link-out), Discussion Question (Q&A Forum), Quiz (about 10 questions) and Assignment (uses the Workshop Activity), with solutions that need to be published as a web page (or other suggestion) and Assessment Rubric that needs to be created.
In addition, there is a Final Exam in the 9th week.
The course developer has created everything in Word. Ideally if we could connect up with someone experienced in building math courses in Moodle that could first advise us on the best approach (to deal with the equations) and then help us implementing (at least for the first few units until we get the hang of it) that would be ideal.
- Experience creating equations and mathematical expressions in Moodle a plus
- Experience building and editing courses in Moodle required
- Knowledge of Moodle’s activity and resource structure and utility a must
