Michelle Moore – Teaching with Moodle: Best Practices in Course Design

In this session, Michelle Moore explores and discusses the common features of good Moodle courses and work to bring together what we know about “best practices” in Moodle course development

Teaching with Moodle

Here are some useful links to help teachers and students have a positive Moodle experience that enhances the learning process:

  • The Good Teacher – a story about how a good teacher improves her teaching….. when she discovers Moodle!
  • Teaching Do’s & Teaching Don’ts – Good general/pedagogical guidelines to consider when setting up a course in Moodle and introducing students to it.
  • Case studies – This is a subset of the Moodle Stories forum. It contains a collection of innovative ways teachers are utilizing Moodle in their classroom. This is a great place for teachers who like the idea of Moodle and what it has to offer, but could benefit from ideas to start from.
