Moodle can be invaluable in structuring and sharing your course materials with learners, and also in monitoring and assessing progress.

There’s an assumption from learners (and their parents) that learning will be available online - your Moodle site can be accessed via PC, tablet or other mobile device via a web-browser or there’s a free mobile app for your phone which can give you structured access to the learning that you need at any time.

 

Benefits of Moodle for the educators

Sharing learning materials – With Moodle’s rich resource toolkit, files and links to websites can be shared with learners easily. Pages of learning content – combining text, images and embedded video - can also be quickly created within a course.

Managing access to learning materials Group students into year or class groups to automatically provide access to the appropriate learning materials. You can even control when specific course content becomes available to learners.

Updating course content – Edit 24/7 via a browser to update and add to course content for learners to access immediately.

Automated assessment – Why spend time marking when Moodle can do it for you?! Use a variety of engaging question types in a Quiz to assess the learning. Moodle can mark these and give immediate detailed feedback to the learners – ideal for both formative and summative assessment.

Managing work submissionsLearners can submit work and receive feedback and grades from the teacher. Teachers can also mark offline and can also incorporate their mark scheme to promote a consistent approach to marking. Teachers can also construct a comment bank to help supplement personalised feedback with pre-defined statements.

Communicating with learners Moodle’s messaging system allows learners and teachers to communicate easily. Teachers can also communicate with groups of learners via course forums either to provide answers to learners’ questions or to just get involved in discussions.

Monitoring progress / ReportsNo more need for tracking sheets in Excel! Moodle’s stores each learner’s scores from any graded activities. Snapshot reports can be viewed at any time to see how each learner is progressing through the course materials. There is also a full audit trail to monitor when and how regularly your learners are accessing resources.

What is an LXP? A quick guide for L&D professionals

If you’re responsible for managing e-learning programmes you’ll know what a Learning Management System (LMS) is. If you’ve attended any learning fairs in recent years you may have seen the term LXP popping up.

It stands for Learning Experience Platform and represents a whole new range of possibilities to expand the way your audiences learn.

OK, so here are the things made possible with an LXP:

Open Badges: A simple way to improve learner engagement

For anyone managing e-learning programmes learner engagement is surely a key measure of success. You may have hundreds of people in different departments or teams but all of them are likely to appreciate recognition for their efforts. That’s where Open Badges come in.

Open Badges enable your learners to get verifiable proof for the knowledge, skills and achievements they have developed through your e-learning programme.

Engage your learners with gamification in Moodle

The term gamification has been around for years, but what is it? Simply, it’s about bringing elements from game design into a non-game context and there are good reasons to do so.

Many people who’ve been in the workforce for years will have got into gaming as children but even for the non-gamers amongst us introducing gamification into your Moodle LMS can make a big difference (and implementing it can be much easier than you think!).
