Third time lucky with Moodle MOOC
Moodle, Moodle, Moodle MOOC – M3M
This is my third attempt to finish a Moodle MOOC. It is always the same old story with the dropout and I should really follow my own advice and think about my time and my motivation. There is no problem with my motivation, as a relative new Moodler I really want to know more about how to make best use of Moodle, to learn more about the features and how to create engaging Moodle courses.
However, I have a problem of time. I know it is all about time-management, but the day has only 24 hours and how do you fit in the work as a full-time teacher, working part-time for the local university, writing for MOOC News & Reviews and my own blog, successfully finishing #COER13 MOOC, reviewing a book for Packt Publishing, keep up with new developments on Twitter and other social media and so on.
Moodle MOOC 2 on WizIQ
However, there is a new chance with Moodle MOOC 2 on WizIQ which started October 1st and runs the whole month. And the good thing is the fall holidays just started, giving me no excuse to dropout again 😉
For those interested to join in, please follow the link to Moodle MOOC 2. The theme for the course is interpersonal, active learning.
The Moodle MOOC 2 follows the classic description of a MOOC.
- M = Massive – With about 2508 learners this MOOC is truly massive.
- O = Open – this course is free and open as it has no application requirements. Only a username and password is needed.
- O = Online – participants require internet access
- C = Course – The MOOC has a starting and completion point (1 – 31 October, 2013) and to receive a certificate of completion you need to be actively engage in discussion, attend all and/or view the recordings of all the sessions, reflect and write about the live sessions and share the link of their activities.
Moodle MOOC experience
I am still in the orientation stage and try to find my way around the new environment. But I’ll be back to report more about my Moodle MOOC experience 😉
