In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
Before we get into building our course I want to give you a quick tour of the finished course that we are going to be building throughout this training series. We are going to put together a complete online course for your students. The course is going to be about coral reef ecology. We will start off by posting a bunch of documents and information for your students. T is going to be your knowledge base. You will be able to post documents like your syllabi, lecture slides, and various different reading assignments for your students. I will also show you how to post images and even interactivity into your main page, such as interactive maps that your students will be able to drag around and explore more information on.
We will set up places for you to post required readings and links to outside web sites. Then I am going to show you how to build community and collaboration within your course by setting up discussion forums and a class wiki. This will help get your students to interact with each other, both in the classroom and outside the classroom. We will show you how to set up assignments, so that you can have your students hand in work electronically, so don't have to carry home those bags of papers to grade. They will all be delivered electronically directly to your computer.
Finally, we'll go ahead and we'll show you how to set up some online exams, so you can perform assessments directly inside of your course. There are a whole lot of tools that Moodle has available to help you build your course, manage your grades, and manage all the activities of your students. This was just a quick overview so that you have an idea as to where we are trying to get to. Let's get started building our course.
