Using Moodle in Business

This session is aimed at users (or intending users) of Moodle in business.  This might be commercial organisations, private education providers, not-for profit or public sector departments. We will examine the best ways to use Moodle outside of a purely academic setting, and explore how a Moodle site, it's management, course design and reporting have very different requirements from schools or universities. The session will also look at social-networking and understand what ideas we can take from Facebook, Linkedin, Google and others to integrate within our organisations 'learning space'. The session will be interactive, and encourage collaboration and sharing of knowledge within the group.

Learning Together About First Nations Pedagogy

The First Nations Pedagogy project is conceived as a learning community for educators, elders, curriculum developers, educational leaders, and students to share resources, discuss practices, and support one another in creating the best possible educational experiences for our aboriginal learners. While the basic framework is in place, a key component requiring further thinking and development is a “Learning Centre”, a Moodle site to co-create, share, and implement learning activities that may be utilized by teachers and other educational leaders who work with aboriginal students. During this session we invite you to participate in the design of this Learning Centre.

From Managing a Course to Managing a Curriculum

Moodle has established itself as a powerful LMS, providing a plethora of functionalities dedicated to enhancing the learning experience. However, its full academic potential has not yet been fully tapped, as its focus has been mainly on course management. In an academic context, however, there is a need for integrating course management within curriculum management. Past attempts at this have been ungainly, relying on impractical core changes. With Panorama 1.0, a Moodle plugin designed as a curriculum manager, users and administrators are given an overview of all courses, competencies, certificates, programs and diplomas, be this in a private business context or an educational institution.

Open, integrated, interdisciplinary, Beauty Moodle Course

Hosted on FreeMoodle.org, the Beauty Course incorporates a number of design elements into a unique open-access course that unpacks the notion of "beauty." It uses the phi ratio as a vehicle
for math, science, art, health and language arts outcomes for Gr. 6-8. These design elements include: activities for multiple intelligences; multiple (i.e. non-sequential) access points (logical, creative, social/reflective…); downloable manipulatives for geometry components; scaffolding for "comprehensive" (inc. critical) thinking; and creative expression, all in the context of measurable, performance-based assessment.

Teaching with Moodle: Beyond Bloom’s Taxonomy

Moodle is more than content delivery; it is an effective tool to build cognitive learning processes.  But how do teachers use this tool to create authentic learning opportunities and encourage student metacognition to ultimately build these processes? This presentation will focus on theory and practice in an attempt to answer that question.  It will discuss the research behind higher order thinking and will show examples of how to engage students in the metacognitive processes of understanding themselves as learners through the use of Moodle. Examples will be drawn from secondary Social Studies, Mathematics and Science courses.

Inter-connecting worlds: Moodle for social workers in indigenous communities

Caring for First Nations Children’s Society is moving its traditional face-to-face instructional programs for BC Child Welfare social workers in Indigenous communities to a blended learning model using Moodle and Mahara.  Inter-connecting worlds refer to practical training based on BC ministry policies, competencies and legislation in relation to Aboriginal practice standards and Indigenous ways of knowing, as well as the blending of face-to-face instruction and its relation to online learning. We ask ourselves, how do we honor these inter-connecting worlds that promote diversity, creativity, inspiration and knowing as practicing Child Welfare social workers?  We will discuss how these considerations shaped our curriculum building, engagement and delivery methods within Moodle and Mahara.

Moodle and Language Learning in Rural Nicaragua: A Tool for Hope?

The session will explore the use of Moodle as a distance language teaching tool for an asynchronous language course in rural Nicaragua. The pilot project will test the platform’s functionality and I hope to share my experiences from start to finish, aware of the largely inequitable dynamics within and between the dominant (English speaking culture) and the Nicaraguan end-user particpants. The project will also try to identify technology-enhanced strategies for student success.  The session will be organized around the following questions: Is this kind of language instruction feasible? What’s at stake? What are the resulting challenges? Is technology a tool for hope or a reinforcement of the status quo? Do even the best of us have assumptions about student success and solidarity?

The case studies include videotaped interviews, best practice guidelines and tips from faculty, biographies, transcripts, and accompanying sample learning materials.

The goal of the case studies is to help other instructors adapt, conceptualize and apply strategies and best practices in their own courses and contexts. We will highlight site uses and potentialities, and profile particularly engaging Moodle activities in an open discussion atmosphere.

Moodle Modifications and In-House Enhancements

We have a very high degree of customization across the board in our asynchronous Moodle LMS.  These include automatic bi-weekly grade reporting, inactivity notifications, final report card processing, automatic course-specific SMS messages to students that feed off of our Moodle calendar app, and much, much more.  All of these adaptations were developed in division by our programmers and integrated to assist our teachers in their day-to-day Moodle responsibilities, as well as improve the communication between home and school.  These enhancements have created a better learning experience for our online students.

Less is More: Stripping Moodle Down

Neil Squire Society provides services online for people with disabilities. We have radically changed the look of Moodle to make it more accessible and usable.  Navigation Block? Gone. Front Page? Who needs it! Sections? We’ll use pictures, thanks. File picker? Shredded from existence.  On top of this naked UI, we created a screen reader, templates for online answers, and a badge-based navigation system. Core mods, theme mods, and plugins, oh my!

Collaboration Without Compromising

Running open source software opens up many opportunities to build a community of users to participate in developing solutions to meet their own needs. Such collaboration can be a great experience but can also raise a number of hardships. One of the most daunting of these hardships is maintaining the stability, reliability, and upgradability of your production system, while keeping collaborators engaged. In this presentation we will discuss the University of Alberta’s method for managing customizations to Moodle, integration of plugins from the campus developer community, and our process for deploying the application to testing and production servers.

Creating Accessible Mathematic Courses in Moodle

In 2012 Athabasca University converted a first year calculus course from a print-based (PDF documents generated from LaTeX) to an online format (MathML) in the process configuring the content so that it was accessible to people with disabilities.

A Sharing Community using a Moodle Hub

As the use of Moodle in Canada rapidly grows, so is our desire to share courses, materials and effective practice to avoid ‘recreating the wheel’. Moodle Users in Alberta are collaborating, using a Moodle Hub, to allow teachers to provide rich resources on-line to learners. Sharing can happen at any point – it does not have to be perfect. The process of sharing and tweaking is so important - one teacher starts a project/course/resource with the time they have, then another teacher adds their time and viewpoint into it. The accumulation of efforts works to improve teacher practice and ultimately, student learning. Professional discussions in the group have evolved beyond open sharing to a learning community for online education. Come and join the discussions!

FreeMoodle.org was started in mid-2011 and provides completely free Moodle hosting for individuals and organisations, provided that the courses are open and free to others.  With it's roots in the open knowledge movement, FreeMoodle.org represents an OER project (Open Educational Resources) similar to initiatives such as Wikieducator and Wikiversity.  FreeMoodle.org is however unique in being Moodle based, bringing with it the pedagogically sound principles of Moodle, and supported is and managed by an official Moodle Partner (HRDNZ).  FreeMoodle.org is fundamentally unique in that it provides a free central Moodle-based destination for learners – whoever and wherever they are.

Supporting Faculty: Course Development in Moodle2 (Royal Roads - Sponsor)

This session provides an overview of course development support available to faculty at RRU, including a review of the support strategy we developed for our recent transition to Moodle 2. We'll take a look at the various resources we provide for faculty:  

  • Moodle 2 resource sites
  • self-directed course
  • facilitated courses 

We’ll also take a look at some customizations we’ve made to support faculty in teaching and grading.  We have custom ‘team assignment’ functionality, a ‘course compile to pdf’ plugin, an ‘upload zip response files’ plugin and a ‘grade approval’ process.  We manage our student enrollment via a custom middleware solution between Moodle and our student system and also auto create course shells from the student system.

All of this requires the efforts of several units at Royal Roads including the Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies, IT Services and our program areas.  Join us to learn how this partnership between units results in a quality educational experience for our faculty and students.

Confounding redundancy: LMS, Social Networks & E-portfolio Systems

This session looks at three of the most popular teaching and learning systems at all levels that used to support formal education. However, increasingly LMS, E-portfolio and Social networks each offer similar tools and redundancy can be expensive and confusing. This study examines a theoretical model developed by the authors which shows the strengths and uses of individualized, group, network and sets of learners and the tools that often work most effectively to support learning in each aggregation. The session concludes with a brief demonstration of the ELGG system developed at Athabasca.

PANEL Discussion: Future Trends

At the 2011 Canada MoodleMoot held in Edmonton a closing plenary session involved crowdsourcing Future of eLearning trends from participants. Trends were developed into a poster  around broad themes of global, students, pedagogies, teachers, technology, and credentials.  View the PDF HERE

The 2013 MoodleMoot will revisit the theme of Future Trends. A panel of future thinkers representing K-12, post-secondary and corporate learning will put forward their future trends.

In their statements on future trends panel members will identify at least three trends:

  1. a trend that relates to a Future of eLearning trend crowdsourced at the 2011 Canada MoodleMoot
  2. their forecast for the Learning Management System sector and Moodle's place in it
  3. a trend particularly pertinent to the sector they represent - Community K-12, post-secondary, corporate learning


Using roving microphones and moderators the audience will be invited to interact with the panel, ask questions, comment on trends crowdsourced at the 2011 ModdleMoot, and put forward their own future trends.
Format:

1. Opening introductions – Paul Stacey, chair.
2. Panel introduction – each panel member introduces themselves and provides statement on at least 3 future trends (3-5 minutes/panel member max)
3. Moderators will pose key questions for panel member consideration, and then pose same questions to audience.
4. Panel to panel and audience to panel, and audience to audience interaction will be nurtured.
5. A summary statement will be invited from each panel member, and chair will close.

Help! They want me to Moodle!

For three years RV Schools have been on a journey to introduce teachers and students to an online environment (Moodle) that support learning in our district. Originally implemented to provide students in remote schools with access to courses not offered at their school, it was expanded to be an expectation that all teachers have an online presence for their students. This aligns with our district’s 3 YP and learning model.

We’ll explain how we created a flexible support system that includes instructional design, technical support and training for teachers and administrators. Moodle is now being used extensively throughout our district.

Studying Process: From Muddle to Moodle

Course management systems such as Moodle afford tremendous convenience within blended learning contexts. However, more importantly, Moodle affords instructors ways to develop deeper insights into how students are doing their course work outside of class. Using Moodle log data and reports in conjunction with other Moodle tools makes it possible to better analyze and guide the process of student work, not just the product. In turn, this makes it possible to provide students with formative assessment on the process of their work. This presentation will report on uses of Moodle to analyze and guide the process of student work.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The University of Lethbridge implemented the use of the WebCT in September 1999. In June 2010 the U of L LMS Transition Steering Committee selected Moodle 2.x as our new LMS. In less than 12 months we transitioned over 2000 courses and completely converted from Blackboard to Moodle 2.0. We’ve gone from running a 2.0 pre-release version with live courses to a fully load balanced system with custom blocks and plugins. In this session we’ll share the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of moving to Moodle and some lessons learned in the last 2 years as a Moodle School.

This paper generalizes the teaching experiences in the use of the MOODLE  (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) workshop for an integrating practice of the communicative English students’ skills that studies English V which comprehends the use of different presentations techniques applied  for the presentations of the students’ informatics applications and software development carried out by them at the university in correspondence with the academic and social contexts that can contribute to their professional training as future informatics engineers where the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) constitutes a means of learning in a blended learning process at the University of Informatics Sciences, (UCI).

2:40 - 3:00 pm Moodle: Integrating external application with web services

When the University of the West Indies Open Campus implemented Moodle 2.0 in September 2011, there was a requirement for Moodle to be tightly integrated with the student mangement system. This would rquire functionality to allow for single sign on with the Open Campus's custom Student Management system as well as the ability

to move profile information from one application to another. This presentation will show how this was achieved by building custom authentication, enrolment and local plugins and web services to allow Moodle to consume data from the Student Management System.

Anatomy Illustrated: Moodle as Gallery Space

Art and Design students meet in one room to discuss the inner workings of the human body—the etymology of the words to describe it, its physiological processes, its complex communication systems, the conditions that befall it, and what the heck that has to do with their art and design practice. They render designs, installations and illustrations that invite in a wide audience and broaden meaning analogy toward a rich understanding of the body and the application of concepts to other fields.  Their conceptual use of a gallery space educates viewers not only about the workings of the body but inside the experience of a condition or illness—thus toward a position of deeper empathy.  So can Moodle be that special gallery space?

Integrating a Moodle Course into Facebook

Social Networks are more and more part of our daily life. Students use them to share information and contact friends. Facebook is the biggest social network to date, with 1 billion users (October 2012). Thinking of this, we decided to make a pilot in integrating a Moodle course into Facebook by using a closed group. Facebook offers many features so that teachers can share content to the students and also get in contact with them. This presentation will show how the pilot was done and also the results obtained through a survey with the participating students.

It is based on an assessment that several complementary dimensions, based on the profile of skills developed by Magellan and REPTIC, with significant production. For this aspect, the project focuses on issues based on a formal context augmented by multimedia, simulations, in situ production in Word and Excel tools and finally treasure hunts.

Methodology, tools and new Moodle question types developed under this project will be presented.

Large Scale Course, Enrollment & Content Management

In a standard semester, the University of Alberta has more than 3500 course sections in moodle serving more than 130,000 enrollment seats. With complex variations in enrollment requirements and large numbers of fluid enrollments, structured automation is the only way to efficiently manage this information.

Our team has developed moodle plugins and supporting middleware for self serve course creation, enrollment management and content migration. These webservice plugins make use of built-in moodle libraries for the backup/restore of content, cohorts for enrollments, and categories the institutional hierarchy. We would like to share in detail how our processes are managed, and discuss how other institutions are implementing similar processes.

Beyond Education: Project Collaboration with Moodle

Although Moodle is traditionally used to connect dispersed learners, it can also support dispersed project teams and stakeholder groups by providing a common space for discussion, resource sharing, check-ins, and decision making. This presentation will help broaden your understanding of what Moodle can do and help you to incorporate Moodle into projects in non-traditional ways. You don’t have to be an expert; you just have to be creative! Participants will learn how Moodle is being used beyond “education” through case examples from the career development and social services sector, and will learn how to introduce Moodle as a collaboration tool.

Category Level Administration Plugin

At the University of Alberta, we have over 40,000 users accessing the centrally supported learning management system (LMS). Our University has recently finished transitioning from Blackboard Vista to Moodle. In the transition process we have identified the need to replace the distributed administration model that Blackboard Vista provided. Our solution has evolved into one that provides a hierarchical administrative plug-in based on course categories. This gives faculty and/or departmental administrators the ability to customize settings, plug-ins and blocks at their respective category level.

Online Learning Solutions – Higher Education

This presentation focuses on the challenges in online higher education e.g. postgraduate courses in accounting and finance.  There are a variety of constraints that affect the way blended courses are developed, which can compromise their quality. The solutions to the following challenges will be discussed with a demonstration of a couple of postgraduate subjects designed in Moodle 2.2.5:

  • Re-designing the course from scratch
  • Lack of consistency between online and face-to-face approaches.
  • Direct conversion of face-to-face lectures into online lectures.
  • First teacher contact should be Face-to-Face/Real-Time.
  • Merging e-learning with LinkedIn.

Using Moodle for Course Evaluations

Developed in-house, “Evaldens” is the name of the module used to handle teacher evaluations at École Polytechnique. The “Evaldens” module is wholly integrated into the Moodle platform, allowing course evaluations to be completed almost entirely online. During our presentation, we will cover the following main topics: how the module was developed while taking into account the existing paper based procedure, how the module was implemented and subsequently tested; what impact the new system had on students, teaching staff and advisors; and the pros and the cons of an online system. We will also discuss the recent upgrade of the “Evaldens” module, as well as our next steps in the deployment process.

PLENARY: Bradley Shende: The Business of Social in Learning - And What the Future Holds

 

The Business of Social in Learning - And What the Future Holds
(How Social can change the learning landscape)

The world has become so connected, digitally and socially, in the past five years we can now safely claim communications to have transcended simple confines of Web, Mobile, Internet, and all other traditional forms: in the current digital ecosystem, only organizations that can guide and manage their content while actively listening and engaging, can survive and thrive.  Online Education has shifted fundamentally from a space where users have participated to one where they are equal part creators of content. Engagement, gamification, and social communication are all buzz-words on the tips of professionals grappling to stay current.


Bradley Shende will lead a conversation on this next phase of social evolution through examples of technology past present and future. Featured throughout this presentation are stories and examples of organizations who have embraced social to staggering success and sometimes dismal failure. We will take an honest look at the challenges faced, solutions discovered, lessons learned, and change achieved.

Understanding this paradigmatic shift in what makes communication now so social - is also a key to keeping up with the pace of technology in education.
