If you’d like to get your Moodle Mobile on in a significant way, Moodle Partner HRDNZ may have the perfect opportunity for you. In celebration of their 10th year as a Moodle Partner, they have recently announced they will be hosting a free Moodle Mobile MOOC starting on July 1st. You can register by clicking here.
Here is what is especially cool about this offering: the entire course is designed specifically to be consumed on a mobile device. In fact, HRDNZ specifically ask participants to access the course on their favorite mobile device and using the official Moodle App.
The goal of the course is also something that (I believe) is a great opportunity. The course is targeted at instructors who already use Moodle and want to experience what a great (best practice?) Mobile delivery looks and feels like. (If you’re a Moodle newbee – check out HRDNZ’s MoodleBites for Teachers course instead).
The course will cover the following over four weeks:
- Communication: This week will explore how to interact with others in Moodle Mobile. The course will look at topics such as forums, chat, messaging and other options.
- Resources: The course will focus on what types of resources are available for the Mobile experience and what to use when and why.
- Activities: In this week, the course will look at Moodle Activities that work well in the Mobile setting and how they can make or break a course on mobile.
- Media: The mobile experience requires more than text – this week is focused on learning about how to use other media to enhance the experience for students.
This looks like it is going to be a great opportunity – but only the first 1000 people to sign up get in free!
