Wright, Steve, Moodle Moot 2013, Effective Use of Moodle for e-moderating

  1. 1. Five2Scaling up an online learning model for staff and student induction to Moodle (and then giving it away as an OER) Steve Wright Learning Technologist Lancaster University s.t.wright@lancaster.ac.uk 20-Feb 2013, 14:40 Room B
  2. 2. Starting at the end…• Self Register at http://openlearning.lancs.ac.uk• Go to category Technology Enhanced Learning then Moodle 2.3 Induction• Use enrolment key: Moodle2-3group1 or Moodle2-3group2
  3. 3. Quick overview• Setting Out: Where is this from? A little background and context – Origins, Use• Main focus: What is it? A tour of resources developed• Taking it home: Why listen? What it means for you: – How you can get, and use, the resources – Can you contribute?
  4. 4. A quick intro: Gilly Salmon’s Five Step Model• A model for socialising new learners online (e-moderating + five step model) – First published 2000• A model for activity design (e-tivities)• A course for those new / learning to moderate online courses
  5. 5. Setting Out: Where is this from?Experience 1: Wiki
  6. 6. Setting Out: Where is this from?Experience 1: Wiki
  7. 7. Setting Out: Where is this from?Experience 1: Wiki
  8. 8. Setting Out: Where is this from?Experience 1: Wiki • Why did this happen? • What could be done to stop it?
  9. 9. Setting Out: Where is this from?Experience 2: Questions of Scale • Little help here (or anywhere else) about scaling up for larger groups • Little guidance elsewhere • Other issues: – No introduction or use of Moodle features to support pedagogical approaches. – ‘Cookie-cutter’ implementation (any VLE, not our VLE)
  10. 10. Broader issues with five-step model• It’s very good for those who haven’t learned or interacted online before• It’s clear and ordered and does a lot well (intro to moderating etc.)• BUT – Expensive as a course (~£3.5k for 15 people inc. £1k ’adaptation’ (porting) to local VLE) – No guidance on scaling – Doesn’t really reflect mobile access, social networking, mobile connectivity: • the VLE is “the place” learners will interact??? Where’s facebook. LinkedIn etc.? – Implementation doesn’t really adapt to context: what of VLE opportunities and constraints (affordances) • E.g. Q&A forum / each person posts / standard, activity completion etc. • Doesn’t structure how wikis can be made to work well
  11. 11. Main focus: What is it?An induction to learning online using Moodle• Trying to develop something that would work for our distance learning students• Develop materials so they could be used for staff development and induction as well – Introduce all the main discussion and collaboration features of Moodle – If students are introduced teachers can use them, if the materials for students are there teachers can learn them too – Take steps to ensure sequence of activities and reading instructions: • avoid the wiki pitfalls! (use activity completion)
  12. 12. ActivityCompletion (readthe instructions!)
  13. 13. Main focus: What is it?An induction to learning online using Moodle• How it ran: – https://modules.lancs.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=243• OER version: – https://openlearning.lancs.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=26 – Includes: course overview, example posts, links to other OERs for module and activity design, .mbz file and OU wiki templates. – Doesn’t include: Scanned (copyright) readings, working SFX links Accompanying Guides – OU Wiki guide and others http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fass/moodle/
  14. 14. Taking it home: How you can get these resources• Self Register at http://openlearning.lancs.ac.uk• Go to category Technology Enhanced Learning then Moodle 2.3 Induction• Use enrolment key: Moodle2-3group1 or Moodle2-3group2
  15. 15. Taking it home: what can you contribute?• This is an OER! – Chat – Database• Submissions, additions – Glossary etc. welcome. – Lesson• What’s not there > – Questionnaire – Quiz – SCORM package – Workshop – Book – IMS Content
  16. 16. THANKS • Self Register at http://openlearning.lancs.ac.uk• Go to category Technology Enhanced Learning then Moodle 2.3 Induction• Use enrolment key: Moodle2-3group2 Steve Wright Learning Technologist or Lancaster University Moodle2-3group1 s.t.wright@lancaster.ac.uk
