  • The move to Moodle
    ESF’s decision to replace CLC e-learning platform with Moodle provided school librarians with an opportunity to update and remodel the existing library web pages and their contents
    This is how the idea about a distributed digital library was born
  • 38. What is a 'distributed digital library’
    Distributed Digital Library is a 'virtual' library whose content is the aggregation of many independent web pages, rather than a collection of resources kept in a central school library website.
    Individual library pages accumulate various digital resources for the specific subject areas in school curriculum
    Library pages can be also focused on different age groups of students, for example, pages with resources suitable for Lower school, Middle school and Upper school
  • 39. What are the benefits of DDL for teaching and learning
    connects effectively to school curriculum
    secure to students and teachers an easy access to suitable resources
    meets learning needs of students of different age and learning abilities
  • 40. How DDL builds on Moodle features
    Moodle is an e-learning platform that is primarily designed to deliver contents in instructional formats
    Main characteristics of Moodle:
    Chunks of dynamic contents
    Built-in instructional activities
    High flexibility
    Easy-to-manage interface
    Moodle based library pages are designed more in instructional format
    It helps teachers to imbed library digital resources in teaching
    Teachers can simply link suitable resources to their Moodle courses
  • 41. Why is Moodle a convenient tool for librarians
    easy to embed and manage digital collections by using Moodle components
    rich with instructional tools
    brings library close to teachers
    simple authentication for digital library users
    brings in a new quality in communication with users
    easy way to pass new information to users (news forums connected to course members’ email)
    knowing better the students (students need to enroll to access Moodle library courses, students profiles with photos)
  • 42. WIS Library on Moodle

  • 57. How to embed library e-resources in Moodle courses
    Undoubtedly, teachers are keen on using digital resources provided by school libraries, but there is still a lack of awareness of how best to integrate these resources into the e-learning environment
    Here are some ideas how to develop lessons in Moodle by using e-resources from West Island School digital library:
    Two English courses:
    Macbeth (year 8)
    To Kill a Mockingbird (year 9)
    Science course:
    Solar System (Year 7)
  • 58. Teaching unit: Macbeth
  • 59. Macbeth
  • 60. Book Study: To Kill a Mockingbird
    Moodle page
  • 61. e-learning resources
  • 62. Discussion starter
    RSS FEED
  • 63. Teaching unit: Solar System
  • 64. Rethinking of library instruction methods and tools
    The move to Moodle is also an opportunity for librarians to rethink the way in which online training on the use of various e-resources is organized and presented
    Library lessons should, as well as library Moodle pages, be adjusted to the requirements of different disciplinary areas
    Library instruction pages are also becoming more lively because librarians are utilizing many dynamic components offered in Moodle to embed suitable interactive and multimedia teaching materials.
  • 65. Virtual Information Literacy Class for KS3 students
    Moodle block
  • 66. Research skills for IB students
  • 67. Further development
    The project of creating a distributed digital library supported by instruction pages is still in its infancy and it is not yet available in a complete and usable form.
    The further development of DDL should go in several directions:
    Creating pages with subscription e-resources for major disciplinary areas
    Adding up suitable quality resources from the Internet
    Providing interactive tutorials for key resources
    Supplying instructional materials for basic information literacy skills
    Raising awareness of library digital resources with teaching staff and students
