What is the Moodle Educator Certification (MEC)?

In this page:

According to Solange Lalonde, Senior Curriculum Manager at Moodle HQ, the MEC is all about developing digital confidence among educators, instrumental “in an increasingly online world and workplace.” Every Moodle Partner follows the same standardized curriculum, which has been aligned with the European Union’s guidelines, specifically the 22 items in its Science & Knowledge Service’s Digital Competencies Framework for Educators.

The “MEC Core Competencies” covers the first 6 and culminates with a practical “Design Challenge” capstone. These first 6 are:

  1. Universal Design
  2. Open Content
  3. Guiding Learners
  4. Teaching Tools
  5. Learner Collaboration
  6. Assessment Strategy

Why MEC?

  • Advance your career and professional development goals with practical skills on Moodle (open source, the world’s #1 Learning Management System) and broader digital education competencies.
  • Consolidate your 4 pillars of modern learning: Design, Guide, Connect and Reflect.
  • Increase the quality of your learning and professional offerings in your organization by leveraging Moodle’s features, tools and pedagogical frameworks.
  • Join a global network of educators with like-minded aspirations for evidence, innovation and impact in their learning.
  • Support the development of Moodle. (A percentage of MEC goes to support the Free and Open Source Software used by millions of students around the world.)
