It is the second to last week, of the first month of the year and the Teaching with Moodle MOOC. Time certainly does fly! Especially for the engaged coven at the Teaching with Moodle MOOC, which by now should have a confident handle around a Moodle 3.2 site, enough to drive their own students through a vibrant online learning intervention through Moodle.
This is a make-or-break week, but even people new to Moodle could safely join and have enough time to earn a certification. If you are not interested in following through, you can create a free account just to browse around, and to see the content for some of the links in this recap.
Week 3 is all about “Making the Grade“, covering the Gradebook Activity. For many teachers, this is the head of operations, at least at some peak times and especially during the last days of a course. The Gradebook is unique as it centralizes data about student work and performance from the other activities. Moodle HQ Community Educator Mary Cooch will show you some tips about course, students and grades organization, as it covers the many evaluation options available for Moodle.
Work this week continues upon the Workshop Activity of the previous week. First, students created a page about their home countries. This week’s phase involves peer assessment. You will grade three of each other’s pages, and three students will grade yours.
But perhaps the most interesting part of the week will be getting to know the courses other students have made. It is a great taste of the interests and priorities of educators worldwide. As this week also covered self-enrollment options, you can automatically sign up for as many free courses as you want!
