Moodling with Rwandan
Researchers


          Ravi Murugesan
• INASP
  – “International Network for Availability of
    Scientific Publications”
  – Charity based in Oxford
  – Promotes scholarly information for
    development
• AuthorAID
  – One of INASP’s projects
  – Supports developing country researchers in
    publishing their work
Training at AuthorAID
• Workshops on publishing research for
  university researchers in partner countries
  – Ethiopia, Rwanda, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania,
    Nepal, Cuba…
• Over 25 workshops facilitated by
  AuthorAID staff since 2007
  – Many “cascaded” workshops as well
E-learning
• Initially supposed to be a set of e-learning
  modules put up on the website
• Then a Moodle enthusiast was hired
Pilot e-learning course
• “Writing a Research Paper for Publication”
• Set up on Moodle 2.1
• 6-week, fully online course
  – October to November 2011
• One instructor (me) and 28 learners
  – Academic staff at the National University of
    Rwanda
Activities in the course
•   Forum
•   Lesson (most of the course)
•   Feedback
•   Glossary
•   Database
Facing the challenges
• E-learning adoption: slow in Africa
• English: Second language in Rwanda
• Mostly first-time e-learners in the pilot
  course
Encouraging enrolment
• Clear course description
  – Circulated by email well in advance
• Preparatory course before the actual
  course
• Light weekly workload (2 to 3 hours)
• Self-registration and self-enrolment
Accessible, interesting content
• Moodle’s default theme used for low-
  bandwidth connections
• Short sentences and simple words in the
  content
• Questions interspersed (lesson module)
  – Of 118 pages in the course, 74 had questions
• Not more than 200 words per page in
  lessons
Question page in a lesson
Encouraging study and completion
• Preparatory course and learning
  guidelines
• Regular announcements (news forum)
• Prompt responses to questions
• Monitoring learners’ progress every week
• Checking with learners who fell behind
• End-of-course assignment
• Two-week extension
Assignment with database module
Glossary with questions and
         answers
Outcomes
• 25 of 28 learners (89%) completed
  the course
• Good feedback
Screenshots from analysis page of
       feedback module
Next steps
Moodle for AuthorAID; maybe for
          INASP too!
                       AuthorAID
