  • Both Cumbrian and Hualien teachers were concerned about the time it takes to do things on the British Council website – you had to offer a project and then ask for a partner school and even when I specified the school I wanted to work with, the information didn’t always come back. One of our County ICT Consultants, June Williams, has been an absolute star and set up the Cumbrian-Hualien-Sendai Connecting Classrooms Moodle. We have already got quite a few Cumbrian and all the Hualien teachers as users with some of our Sendai colleagues dipping in too. It’s interesting that since we demonstrated our Moodle in Hualien, there have been few postings on our forum on the British Council Moodle.
