    • A formative experience of people with disabilities (down sindrome) through TIC
      • Josetxu Aguirre
    • A distance on-line learning experience for students from different universities
      • Ángeles Gutiérrez
    • Computer supported collaborative learning to help presential teaching
      • Melchor Gómez
  • Virtual Learnin Environment (VLE) to help presential teaching http://cursos.dte.uam.es
  • Project
    • At the request of teachers, few subjects are supported by an Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
    • We use a virtual learning environment that helps presential teaching (NOT distance education)
    • Students usually attend their classes. After that, they can access materials and classroom activities through the platform.
    • Occasionally they take classes in the computer room and they use the VLE to conduct activities during the same meeting.
    • They can also send their activities to their own box in VLE where the teacher reviews and appraises.
    • The activities can be done individually or in groups. Communication tools allow these possibilities.
  • Virtual Learnin Environment
    • We use a course management system: A free, Open Source software package designed using pedagogical principles.

  • Collaborative Learning
    • Moodle is not just about text, images and links. There is a philosophy that presumes that learning is particularly effective when constructing something for others to experience .
    • Moodle was born with collaboration in mind
  • Active learning
    • We encourage our students to experience Moodle not as a book that has been posted to the Web, but rather as an active learning system
  • Teacher role
    • Our job as a 'teacher' can change from being 'the source of knowledge' to being an influencer and role model of class culture
    • Teacher addresses student learning needs, and moderate discussions and activities in a way that collectively leads students towards the learning goals of the class.
  • Instructions
    • You will need to be logged into the course as a user who has been assigned a role as a teacher (with editing rights).
    • A course is created by adding resources and activities.
    • To add or alter activities or resources a teacher will need to turn editing on and off with a button on the course homepage.
  • Activities
    • There are a number of robust interactive learning activity modules that you may add to your course with the "Add an activity" drop down menu:
      • 1. Communication and collaboration may take place using live Chats or asynchronous discussion Forums for conversational activities
      • 2. Adding Wikis to your courses is an excellent way to allow students to work together on a collaboratively-authored project.
      • 3. Glossaries of keywords can be set up by the instructor, and can be configured to allow students to edit, add, or rate entries.
      • 4. Online Quizzes offer several options for automatic and manual scoring
      • 5. Work can be uploaded and submitted by students and scored by teachers using Assignments or Workshops .
        • Workshops have several assessment options: instructor-assessment, self-assessment, and even peer-assessment
      • 6. Lessons and SCORM activities deliver content and offer ways of individualizing your presentation based upon a student's choices
  • Resources
    • Moodle supports a range of different resource types that allow you to include almost any kind of digital content into your courses. These can be added by using the add a resource dropdown box when editing is turned on.
      • 1. A Text page is a simple page written using plain text
      • 2. If you are after more options for your new page then you should be thinking about adding a Web page
      • 3. If the resource already exist in electronic form, you may link to an uploaded file or external website
      • 4. If you have an IMS content package then this can be easily added to your course.
  • Reports
    • Reports in the Administration block, Activity Reports (next to each name in the list of all people, or from any user profile page). These provide a great way to see what any particular person has been up to in the course.
  • Benefits
    • Motivates and engages students
    • Supports self-directed learning
    • Promotes collaborative learning
    • Helps students organise better
    • Provides one-to-one support for students
    • Embeds the use of ICT in subject teaching
    • Breaks down barriers to learning (time, space)
    • Thanks for your attention…
