Your Year Of Moodle Begins Now With The 2018 “Learn Moodle 3.4 Basics” MOOC

The first 2018 edition of the official Moodle MOOC hit the ground running. For second-time course takers, there is a mix of familiarity and novelty, most notably of all the content updated to reflect the new features from Moodle 3.4, the latest release.

The focal point for starting students is, without a doubt, the “Introduce yourself!” forum. It is the MOOC’s introduction hall, filled with friendly educators and open technologists from all over the world, willing to exchange in the mutual acquisition of knowledge, experiences, and contact information.

Another important first action to take is the decision to grant Moodle HQ access to anonymized behavior data. This will help improve Moodle’s upcoming offerings, and eventually become available for researchers. In fact, the anonymized dataset from the August 2016 edition of the MOOC is available for download. It is, of course, a voluntary decision to provide your data, and will not affect the course’s outcomes.

From the official Learn Moodle app, it is possible to access the whole course, even offline. The only live activities are the Friday live sessions, which are highly recommended but not mandatory.

The “Learn Moodle 3.4 Basics” will run until February 4th, but course takers can complete all of it and earn a certificate beforehand. As one of the course deliverables involves the creation of their own Moodle course, participants will enjoy access to their creations, hosted on Moodle servers, until February 6th. Creators can download and export their courses at any time before that date.
