    Crash Course on Moodle (8 PGP Points)

    Dates: September 4 – September 29

    A distance education course designed to provide teachers and school administrators the skills necessary to use a basic Moodle course to:  

    • Take academic courses online and provide resources to students on a professional LMS platform in a hybrid, not fully online format.    
    • Enable school administrators to provide resources to teachers, store professional development resources and collaborate with teaching staff on a professional LMS. Can actually take faculty meetings and other committee meetings online in a secure, organized, professional environment. Teachers and staff could pre-read materials or work collaboratively on school projects.   
    • Administrators can also model the use of the LMS to teachers and other staff members.

    Special Note:  Crash Course on Some Basic Features of Moodle is meant to be an introduction to the Moodle LMS and some basic tools and resources that can be utilized on LMS platform.  By taking this course, a teacher or administrator should obtain the skills to setup a basic Moodle course to provide a platform of resources to students or other course participants.  It is not a comprehensive training for Moodle.  Many things like quizzes (tests and assessments), online assignments, gradebook setup and grading along with more advanced features used in Moodle are not covered in this course.

    If you want more comprehensive training, please register for one of the following PRISM distance education courses:

    Basic Moodle for Teachers (10 PGP Points) – A basic introduction to Moodle 3.3. You will learn how to build a classroom course and populate it with files, assignments and quizzes.

    Dates: September 5 – October 3

    Intermediate Moodle for Teachers (10 PGP Points) – A continuation from the Basic Moodle for Teachers course. Choose this course if you already have Moodle experience and would like to learn how to use some of the more advanced features like wikis, databases, lessons, and RSS feeds.

    Dates: September 6 – October 4

    Advanced Moodle for Teachers (10 PGP Points) – A continuation from the Intermediate Moodle for Teachers course. This course will take the Intermediate level course a step further as participants learn advanced grade book features, groups and groupings, conditional activities, and the workshop activity module.

    Dates: September 7 – October 5

    Let me know if you have any questions or would like more details about the courses. All of the courses are completed online at your-own-pace.
