Building an online moodle course

  1. 1. Building an Online Moodle course Dr. Ahmad Mikati Arab Open University Lebanon June, 2017
  2. 2. Overview • Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is an online course intended to reach an unlimited number of participants with an open access via the web. • In addition to customary course materials such as readings, video recorded lectures, and problem sets, many online courses provide interactive user forums to support community collaborations and engagements among students, professors, and other facilitators. • MOOC is a recent development in distance education, which fosters open, participatory, distributed, and lifelong-networked learning.
  3. 3. MOOC Design Patterns 3 A Moodle course page is mainly divided into categories of sections: 1. A General section, which could be considered as week 0. In this section, the student can find the needed information about the course: aims, structure, content, and learning outcomes. In addition, the student will find the latest announcements along with the important dates of the assignments and exams. 2. Weeks sections, where the material will reside. In each weekly section, the student will find the material of the week: text, images, video, and any additional activities such as Discussion forums or quizzes. In addition, the learning outcomes should be included for each week. In the next two slides, we will show you a typical design of each section.
  4. 4. MOOC Design Patterns- week 0 • Course Title; • Welcome • Short video to introduce the course • Welcomenote to the course • Course team with hyperlinks to profile page of every one • Brief statement of the course aims • Brief statement of course content • Course learning outcomes • Why the course topics can benefit you • Typical real-world problem scenario • Course structure and content • Diagram summarizing the contents foreach week • Preparation for this course • Educational prerequisites • Study advice: • Guideline – how to best use this course and the platform; • Structure – of the course,number of weeks, name of chapters, assignments,deadlines; • Announcements– any important information the student needs to know about the course. 4
  5. 5. MOOC Design Patterns-weekly section • Weekly information • Week number and title • Learning outcomes of the week • Topics/learning objects • Title of the topic • Text of the topic • Graphics of the topic • Videos of the topics (if available) • Discussion on forum related to the topic • Activities related to the topic • Quiz with formative feedback • Simulations • Summary of the week: • Briefing about the topics of this week and introducing the topics of the next week • Summary video (optional) • Summary text 5
  6. 6. MOOC Design Patterns-weekly section One of the possible options to implement most of the weekly components is the “lesson” activity . The tutor can add the lesson activity in each week, and this lesson comprises several pages (each section of the material needs a page), in addition to the quizzes, videos, quizzes, tests, and other stuff. This is depicted in the below exhibits. 6 The pages of the lesson
  7. 7. Building a Lesson in a Moodle course
  8. 8. Planning your lesson- Overview • A lesson in Moodle comprises several pages which may have content to be read or questions to be answered. • The content and questions can be prepared beforehand by the tutor. • The tutor decides the sequence in which these pages appear. • However, the tutor needs to have a clear clue beforehand of what he/she wants to do with this lesson. Will the lesson be a graded or an ungraded one? Will the students be granted multiple attempts to answer the questions or revisit the subsections, or is it just a once- only opening? • A very useful approach is to note down on paper the direction they want their lesson pages to go in, rather than having to recall and envisage the flow in their head.
  9. 9. Planning your lesson- Formation • The first step the tutor needs, after preparing the content, is to add the lesson (activity) and set it up. • In the next two slides, you can find the depiction of what the setup page of the lesson looks like 1. Click Add activity 2. Choose lesson

  25. 25. Saving your lessons as .mbz file • After finishing all lessons and distributing them properly over the weeks, the tutor needs to create a backup of this course in order to be reused later or in other Moodle pages. • To archive course Resources,Activities, and course settings for safekeeping, it is highly recommended that tutors backup (.mbz) their course periodically; if something happens to the original, they can easily restore it to the most recent backup. • The .mbz can be used to restore the course on the local LMS or the central LMS. Note: The tutor should know that .mbz files cannot be used outside of Moodle.
