  • This site provides an example of Course Community site in Moodle.
    Here students can access a range of information and communicate with their peers. It allows students to establish an ‘identity’ with their peers across the year levels, whereas previously they were isolated within their units.
    In this instance this page provides information supporting the induction of students new to UNE.

    On the left hand side students can see all of their unit web sites and any course and community sites that they are enrolled in.

    On the right hand side, there is a link to other professional communities that students, as they progress through their studies, may link up with.

    The Search forums, also provides a practical way for students to link to relevant discussion forums in the Professional Community.

    There will also be links here to policy and other relevant ‘general’ information
  • This is a typical unit web site in Moodle.
    It has three columns and this particular site is using a topic based approached. As you can see the first topic in this site “Overview of Marketing” is currently highlighted, making it obvious where the student needs to draw their attention.
    Note on the left hand side in the navigation column, the student can jump directly to any particular section of the site, without multiple ‘clicks’.
    Navigation and access is consistent across all sites, making it easier for students to get quickly to the resources / spaces / activities that they need.
  • This shows an example of a content page and a personalised introduction to a particular unit by the Unit Coordinator. Use of photos are encouraged because they don’t use a lot of bandwidth but are good for personalising the unit.
  • Topics clearly stated and all activities detailed to students.
    Without being able to view the comparative site in Blackboard, the previous learning management system used at UNE, you may not appreciate the improvements that Moodle provides.
    In Blackboard, you would have to go down multiple pathways to find all of the particular activities associated with a unit topic.
    In Moodle, this is all at one level and activities are situated within the learning pathway, as appropriate.
    This is not only easier for the student from a learning perspective but much easier for a teacher to set up, as they can think holistically about their approach to a unit, rather then which tool do I use now.
  • On the right hand side of the Moodle site there is a calendar which will show key events that are both university and course wide.
    It will also show the individual assessment due dates for each student in their own site.
  • Resources are critical to what a students can access for their learning . This will include slides, audio, video, eReadings, etc.
    Again, without having to learn anything more than the tools staff are familiar with e.g. Microsoft Word and Powerpoint – they can easily setup an interactive presentation in Moodle. From a student perspective, this means that the technology they need to access this information is much more standardised.
