Talking to other organisations such as colleges and universities and other learners it appears that some Moodles become overloaded and very confusing, making it hard to navigate around.So what we are looking to create is
A clear but exciting interactive Moodle, tailored to each individual service user. This means working with each of them to produce their own themes, where they can learn and develop new skills. We are going to provide a safe social network, a please for their daily activities to be uploaded that can be shared with the parents/guardians and also social workers and regulating bodies, to demonstrate how they are progressing in their day to day lives. The younger learners will be able to access their homework, weekly timetable and weekly newsletters.
They can use their chose teacher for the day, which can be changed as and when needed. One of our service users, prefers to be woken up in the morning and supported by either a character from the Muppets or one of Doctor Who’s companions.

The use of augmented reality has so many exciting uses within the Moodle environment, from bringing lessons to life, showing how to get to places so increasing independence. Demonstrating tasks at differing levels (making a cup of tea, making the bed). It can be added to a picture of themselves and the video played around an activity they have undertaken.
