Observation: Teacher Habits Teachers are moving in the right direction when they move learning online, especially in Moodle. When a teacher starts adding to a Moodle, the teacher usually does a "quick dump" of resources, ideas, and activities into the Moodle. This ends up being a large list of things. This is okay as a first step. After all, there has to be a place to start and items to work with. A second look at a Moodle may result in clustering around topics or time factors. Again, this is a great way to start creating a learning experience for the students. Much more is need to have a great experience, however; once the basic pieces are available in the Moodle, the teacher's next step is to mold those pieces into a learning cycle that is appropriate for the students.
