  • 5. Web 2.0 and education
    • For teachers, using Web 2.0 tools is not a luxury or an optional extra, it is essential .
    • Moodle is a web 2.0 tool. It is about enabling teachers and students to collaborate and publish their work.
  • 6. Web 2.0 and education
    • Everything Shakespeare, Darwin and Pepys wrote is available free on the web. We know more about these people than they did!
  • 7. Web 2.0 and education
    • There are very few questions that cannot be answered within five minutes. What does this mean for teaching today?
  • 8. Moodle and more
    • A Moodle that is just a collection of .pdf files with a few weblinks and maybe a quiz or two is not really a Moodle. It is a web 1.0 website.
    • Moodle can do much more than just deliver content to students.
  • 9. Moodle and more
    • The quiz function in Moodle allows for multimedia questions, options and distractors.
    • Moodle gradebook could save teachers a lot of time, and it allows for continuous assessment.
    • Every Moodle should have a forum and some ‘fun stuff’.
  • 10. Moodle and more
    • You can use Moodle on an iPad but some editing functions are limited.
    • There are at least two teams of people working on apps for Moodle on iPhones and other small portable devices.
    • Moodle works better on Firefox than it does on Internet Explorer
  • 11. Moodle and more
    • Moodle integrates with Mahara with a single login. An exciting open source portfolio management tool - ideal for PLP.
    • Many schools, Universities and training organisations are moving to Moodle. This means that there is a growing demand for people with skills in developing Moodle and teaching with Moodle.
  • 12. Moodle 2.0
    • Due to be released in a couple of weeks, but don’t hold your breath
    • Much simpler management of files
      • Files will move with the objects they are attached to
      • You can use a central repository, or a range of them, to link files into Moodle
      • You can link to files from storage in sites like Flickr, Google Docs, …
  • 13. Moodle 2.0
  • 14. Moodle 2.0
    • The progress bar (not widely used in Moodle 1) will be replaced by a standard feature that enables students and/or teachers to ‘tick off’ each stage in a course before the student moves on to the next stage
    • Moodle 2.0 facilitates peer assessment, and grades it with minimal teacher input
  • 15. Moodle 2.0
    • No need for meta- courses in Moodle 2.0 because bulk enrolment and grouping of students and cohorts of students will be simple.
    • Bad news (for some): Themes for Moodle 1.9 will not work on 2.0. Good news: Developing themes in 2.0 will be simpler than it is now.
