  2. 2. Virtual Learnin Environment (VLE) to help presential teaching
  3. 3. Project <ul><li>At the request of teachers, few subjects are supported by an Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) </li></ul><ul><li>We use a virtual learning environment that helps presential teaching (NOT distance education) </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Students usually attend their classes. After that, they can access materials and classroom activities through the platform. </li></ul><ul><li>Occasionally they take classes in the computer room and they use the VLE to conduct activities during the same meeting. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>They can also send their activities to their own box in VLE where the teacher reviews and appraises. </li></ul><ul><li>The activities can be done individually or in groups. Communication tools allow these possibilities. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Virtual Learnin Environment <ul><li>We use a course management system: A free, Open Source software package designed using pedagogical principles. </li></ul><ul><li>http :// </li></ul>
  7. 7. Collaborative Learning <ul><li>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 . </li></ul><ul><li>Moodle was born with collaboration in mind </li></ul>
  8. 8. Active learning <ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  9. 9. Teacher role <ul><li>Our job as a 'teacher' can change from being 'the source of knowledge' to being an influencer and role model of class culture </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher addresses student learning needs, and moderate discussions and activities in a way that collectively leads students towards the learning goals of the class. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Instructions <ul><li>You will need to be logged into the course as a user who has been assigned a role as a teacher (with editing rights). </li></ul><ul><li>A course is created by adding resources and activities. </li></ul><ul><li>To add or alter activities or resources a teacher will need to turn editing on and off with a button on the course homepage. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Activities <ul><li>There are a number of robust interactive learning activity modules that you may add to your course with the &quot;Add an activity&quot; drop down menu: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Communication and collaboration may take place using live Chats or asynchronous discussion Forums for conversational activities </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><ul><li>2. Adding Wikis to your courses is an excellent way to allow students to work together on a collaboratively-authored project. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. Glossaries of keywords can be set up by the instructor, and can be configured to allow students to edit, add, or rate entries. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4. Online Quizzes offer several options for automatic and manual scoring </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><ul><li>5. Work can be uploaded and submitted by students and scored by teachers using Assignments or Workshops . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Workshops have several assessment options: instructor-assessment, self-assessment, and even peer-assessment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>6. Lessons and SCORM activities deliver content and offer ways of individualizing your presentation based upon a student's choices </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Resources <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. A Text page is a simple page written using plain text </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><ul><li>2. If you are after more options for your new page then you should be thinking about adding a Web page </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. If the resource already exist in electronic form, you may link to an uploaded file or external website </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4. If you have an IMS content package then this can be easily added to your course. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Reports <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
