  1. 1. Martin Auger 0050020859 Cloud Computing And
  2. 2. What is Cloud Computing?
  3. 3. <ul><li>With traditional desktop computing, we run copies of software programs on our own computer. The documents we create are stored on our own pc. </li></ul><ul><li>Although documents can be accessed from other computers on the network, they can’t be accessed by computers outside the network. This is PC-centric. </li></ul><ul><li>With cloud computing, the software programs we use aren’t run from our personal computer, but are rather stored on servers accessed via the Internet. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>If a computer crashes, the software is still available for others to use. Same goes for the documents we create; they’re stored on a collection of servers accessed via the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Anyone with permission can not only access the documents, but can also edit and collaborate on those documents in real time. </li></ul><ul><li>Unlike traditional computing, this cloud computing model isn’t PC-centric, it’s document-centric. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Key to the definition of cloud computing is the “cloud” itself. Here , the cloud is a large group of interconnected computers. </li></ul><ul><li>These computers can be personal computers or network servers; they can be public or private. </li></ul><ul><li>This cloud of computers extends beyond a single company or enterprise. The applications and data served by the cloud are available to broad groups of users. </li></ul><ul><li>Access is via the Internet. Any authorized user can access these docs and apps from any computer over any Internet connection. </li></ul>
  6. 8. And up in the Cloud We find…. MOODLE
  7. 9. Moodle <ul><li>Introducing...... Moodle ! </li></ul><ul><li>Moodle is an alternative to commercial online learning solutions, and is distributed free under open source licensing. An organization has complete access to the source code and can make changes if needed. Moodle’s modular design makes it easy to create new courses, adding content that will engage learners. </li></ul>
  8. 12. Five Assumptions of Learning <ul><li>We are all potential teachers as well as learners. </li></ul><ul><li>We learn a lot by watching others. </li></ul><ul><li>We learn well by creating and expressing for others. </li></ul><ul><li>Understanding others transforms us. </li></ul><ul><li>We learn well when the learning environment is flexible and adaptable to suit our needs. </li></ul><ul><li>These are 5 fundamental Principles of Learning with Moodle </li></ul>
  9. 13. Learning with Moodle is <ul><li>An online learning environment </li></ul><ul><li>Using tools to support learning & teaching including: </li></ul>Documents and links Assignments and quizzes Working together Discussions and messages Moodle
  10. 14. What can you do in Moodle? <ul><li>In Moodle you and your students can CREATE </li></ul><ul><li>In Moodle you and your students can CONTRIBUTE </li></ul><ul><li>In Moodle you and your students can LEARN </li></ul>
  11. 16. Learner Management Features <ul><li>Creating learning content is only part of what a good course management system (CMS) must do. The CMS must manage learners in a variety of ways. Learner management includes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Access to information about learners in a course. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ability to segment participants into groups. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Site, course and user calendar event scheduling. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And so much more… </li></ul></ul>
  12. 17. Moodle is based on Social Costructivism . <ul><li>Social constructivists view learning as a social process. It does not take place only internally, nor is it a passive development of behaviors that are shaped by external forces. Meaningful learning occurs when individuals are engaged in social activities </li></ul>
  13. 18. Moodle Architecture <ul><li>Activities are at the heart of a course management system. Moodle was designed by an educator and computer scientist, with “social constructionist” principles in mind. “Constructionism asserts that learning is particularly effective when constructing something for others to experience. This can be anything from a spoken sentence to an internet posting. </li></ul><ul><li>The concept of social constructivism extends the above ideas into a social group constructing things for one another, collaboratively creating a small culture of shared items with shared meanings. When one is immersed within a culture like this, one is learning all the time about how to be a part of that culture, on many levels.” </li></ul>
  14. 19. Learner Experience – 24/7 365 days Anywhere Any time <ul><li>Learners can login any time, anywhere to interact with coursework, and can specify the Time Zone and Language they wish to use. Moodle has interface support for 34 languages. </li></ul>
  15. 20. What is the purpose of Moodle? <ul><li>Moodle is designed to help educators create online courses with opportunities for rich interaction. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators have the ability to tailor each course to his/her style and needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Its open source license and modular design mean that people can develop additional functionality </li></ul>
  16. 21. What is Learning & Teaching in the context of the new Educational Landscape? <ul><li>What is Learning? </li></ul><ul><li>The process of acquiring, exploring, inquiring and applying new content, concepts through testing, playing, sharing the info with different audiences; it brings the learner on a different level of operating – global, participatory, motivated, meaningful and rewarding . </li></ul><ul><li>What is Teaching in the Information Age? </li></ul><ul><li>The process of constant learning of how to create conditions for students’ learning & surviving in contemporary world of free flowing information . </li></ul>
  17. 22. What Makes Moodle a good Platform for Engaged Learning? <ul><li>User-friendly interface </li></ul><ul><li>Short Learning Curve </li></ul><ul><li>Constructivist nature </li></ul><ul><li>Design structure and functionality </li></ul><ul><li>Availability of Tools: </li></ul><ul><li>Compatibility with lots of other programs and tools </li></ul>
