Flipping the classroom means shifting the training emphasis from delivering content to fostering discussion and collaborative learning. For an effective flipped classroom strategy, you need to provide solid resources for your students to be able to work through in their own time.

In this workshop we will explore a range of resources created for industry by the National VET eLearning Strategy. You will go hands-on with Moodle downloading and installing free resources from the national learning object repository.

We will also look at integrating content from a variety of sources into Moodle such as embedding YouTube videos and linking to content held in cloud repositories.

For a cohesive instructional approach within Moodle, we will discuss learning design principles to help you design an intuitive and inclusive online learning experience for your students.

Before you attend this workshop, note that you will need to bring a laptop-style computer as some standard Moodle file management functions do not work on Apple mobile devices. There are alternative solutions such as using Dropbox repository or the MoodlEZ iOS app, however users with laptop devices will more easily benefit from this workshop.
