2. Bring Your Classroom Online with Moodle
COVID-19 has changed the way we work, live and, of course, learn. As shown in Google Trends, the interest in "online learning" has increased drastically since the start of COVID-19. 📈
This change can be challenging from the learning perspective, especially for teachers and instructors who are used to face-to-face or in-person classroom learning. With the urgency to move to remote learning, many of the teachers are not fully prepared for this sudden change.
Are you trying to get your classes online? This on-demand webinar is the quick and dirty guide covering how to take your classroom lessons and put them online with the Moodle Learning Management System (LMS).
You might ask, why Moodle? Here are some statistics showing why Moodle is the most popular LMS worldwide 🌎:
- Number of Moodle Sites: 159,000
- Number of Courses: 29,000,000
- Number of Users: 231,000,000
- Number of Countries: 241
So if you need to deliver online courses without wasting a lot of time, this Moodle webinar is for you!
3. Moodle Forum: Engage Learners by Starting a Discussion
Keep your learners engaged not only by offering great content but also by starting a discussion. How do you get the interactions started? One of the tools you can use to achieve this type of learner engagement is Moodle Forum, a powerful asset in creating lively and engaging courses 💬
If you haven't started using Moodle Forum, our webinar is your step-by-step tutorial. We will cover how to:
- Set up the forum in your LMS (identify different forum formats)
- Grade forums
- Manage and analyze online forums activities with Lambda Analytics--a reporting and analytics solution that works well with Moodle
4. Keep Up with the eLearning Trend: Videos and H5P (Interactive Content)
Using engaging and effective videos as part of the eLearning courses is not a new trend, but a trend that has been going on for a while, to a point it is somewhat expected and shouldn't be a surprise. (I mean… who wants to look at PowerPoint with only bullet points for their lessons?)
A survey by Kaltura stated students increasingly expect video content to be part of their learning experience:
"82% see students' expectations for how much video should be part of their learning experience as increasing."1Another survey result indicated "98% of respondents see video as having a part to play in personalized learning experiences."1 More importantly, "91% believe video increases student satisfaction. 82% see it increasing student achievements, and 80% thinks it increases educator collaboration and professional development".1
Now that we know the importance of incorporating video content to eLearning, the next question is: What do you measure to determine if your video lessons are effective learning resources? If you have any video content for your eLearning, this webinar (Moodle and Totara) can give you some tips 📹
In this webinar, we will cover:
- Best practices for using video content in eLearning
- How to use H5P to create interactive video
- Why and how to track completions and time spent learning on Video resources
Other resources related to creating videos and H5P:
