On June 1 and October 2013, the network hosted the first Moodle Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in the world. Participants were able to take a Moodle Experience course (beginners and non-beginners (experienced teachers and managers), Moodle MOOC on WizIQ, WizIQ on Moodle practice area, and participate in various forums on the front page. So far we have had Moodle MOOCs 1-3. You may join Moodle MOOCs 1 & 2 (see the Syllabus for Moodle MOOC 1 and the syllabus for Moodle MOOC 2) and Moodle MOOC 3 (see the Syllabus for Moodle MOOC 3) to view the content and recordings of the live online classes. Moodle MOOC 4 (see the Syllabus for Moodle MOOC 4) is scheduled for June 2014.
There are 3 Moodle MOOCs a year on this Moodle website and on WizIQ via Integrating Technology for Active Lifelong Learning - in February, June, and October.
The workload for the MOOC includes participating or viewing the recordings of the live session and developing a reflective artifact in the form of a blog, wiki, google drive doc, website, web page on a website and so on to sustain the information relevant to your needs and your learning experiences. In addition, participants will be able to learn to manage a Moodle website as a teacher or manager.
Certificates of Completion
Participants, who are active on the coursefeed (discussions), attend all and/or view the recordings of all the sessions, reflect by text and audio or video on at least 10 of the live sessions will be eligible for a certificate of completion. This aspect of the MOOC is ongoing, but time-based. The due date for the reflective practice is at the end of the month (October, February, June).
