Glearning blog: Mindmapping in Moodle or Blogger with Shared Spaces - 0 views

  • Google Shared Spaces offers several mindmapping applications. The one I like best is simply called Mind Map Gadget and can be found on:http://googlesharedspaces.appspot.com/gallery/app?app_id=16636
  • Mind Map Gadget allows you to create a shared space, i.e. students can collaborate on the mindmap, which you can embed into Moodle or any other website plus it lets you work directly in that website. The gadget might not be as impressive as Bubbl.us or Mindmeister, however it does offer some advantages in addition to remaining editable after embedding.

Google Custom Search- Moodle Open Source Course Management System Resources - 6 views

  •  
    I really like the idea of Open Web because it has the capability to bring people of all backgrounds and nationalities closer to each other. By sharing resources, communicating and learning together everyone gets perspectives they would not think of otherwise and all users benefit from a wealth of resources otherwise unavailable to them. Free is good because it eliminates societal differences, keeping "the human" forefront. In consequence, I created this Moodle Open Source Course Management System Resource Search Engine to help anyone who is interested in finding out more about this great worldwide educator tool. Thanks and enjoy! Kinga N. Jacobson Door County / Wisconsin

    A new open source LMS product from two giants
  •  
    Rick, we installed OpenClass on our Google Apps for Education domain yesterday. We set up a few test classes and test users (teachers and students). At this point, my opinion is that this product needs a lot more development It is extremely cumbersome and does not seem to integrate well with the Google domain users when trying to enroll them to a class. In fact, I think the BETA release was premature (opinion). I read the limited number of reviews and the early reviews have a similar theme: frustrated. The good news is if this product does get the resources from both companies going towards the development, I can definitely see the potential. I think the teacher and student interface will be very easy to use and be in a "Google Friendly" format. Time will tell. I am hopeful. Bryon

    Bryon, I am impressed with your willingness to step up a take a swing at this. It sound very intriquing. I do agree with the limitation of blackboard for example. As you say if a "Google friendly" format can occur it should be successful. Hence Google systems past successes.

Open CourseWare- Open High School of Utah - 1 views

  • The Open High School of Utah is a public charter school designed to meet the needs of the 21st century student. As an online school, we combine state of the art curriculum with strategic one-on-one instruction. Our methods can be described as “one-on-one tutoring for every student in every subject”. Instruction is individualized allowing students to work at their pace. Our delivery of education is structured to provide maximum flexibility that is student-centered; responsive to the needs of each learner, eliminating the negative aspects of a one size fits all system. Our technology sets us apart. It is data-driven, providing real time information that instantaneously tracks the student and their performance. Unique to OHSU is our commitment to share the curriculum we have developed as an open educational resource. All of these elements combined make the Open High School of Utah the future of education; we are the face of innovation.

      Yet another example of Moodle success. It makes you wonder how much longer Blackboard can continue to charge its huge fees. Currently we are using Learn9 and Moodle; our instructors overwhelming favor Moodle!

    The design and development of Moodle is guided by a "social constructionist pedagogy". This page attempts to unpack this concept in terms of four main, related concepts: constructivism, constructionism, social constructivism, and connected and separate. From a constructivist point of view, people actively construct new knowledge as they interact with their environments.

Testing Moodle for Accessibility - 1 views

  • Everyone I encountered and tested said clearly that Moodle was the best Learning Management System they'd used. There are many points in its favor. Moodle is pedagogically sound, designed by people with a passion for education. Moodle is a long-standing and mature product, built by and for its users. Moodle is open source. Moodle is almost pure HTML, relying on standard links and form controls. Moodle avoids common barriers to accessibility like Flash, Java, and image maps. Moodle is relatively well-structured semantically. The vast majority of Moodle is technically accessible: blind and vision-impaired users can accomplish nearly all the tasks set before them. However, much work remains to prevent Moodle from being a frustrating experience for these users. Many details that make sense to sighted users, or are entirely ignorable, are stumbling blocks for users of screen reading or magnification software. Brian Charlson at the Carroll Center for the Blind is fond of saying that sighted users go from the macro to the micro. That is, we scan pages rapidly, building an increasingly accurate mental model as we narrow in on the details. Blind users go from the micro to the macro. They experience only the details, and have to infer relationships between them in order to build a larger picture.

Martin Dougiamas Keynote at Moodlemoot Canada | Some Random Thoughts - 3 views

  • Martin Dougiamas presented the keynote at the Canadian Moodlemoot in Edmonton.
  • Martin updated us with the current stats on Moodle 54,000 verified sites worldwide. 41 Million users 97 language packs (17 fully complete, the rest are in various states) 54 Moodle Partners who fund the project and its going very well ensuring the project will continue into the future. (such as Remote-Learner who I work for) USA still has the highest raw number of installations and Spain has half of that with much less population. Brazil is now 3rd in the world and has overtaken the UK now in total installs. 3 of the top 10 are English speaking per head of population, Portugal has the largest number of Moodle installations.
  • As many may have seen before, there are 10 steps of pedagogical usage of Moodle, which is outlined on Moodle Docs. It details the typical 10 step progression which looks like: Putting up the handouts (Resources, SCORM) Providing a passive Forum (unfacilitated) Using Quizzes and Assignments (less management) Using the Wiki, Glossary and Database tools (interactive content) Facilitate discussions in Forums, asking questions, guiding Combining activities into sequences, where results feed later activities Introduce external activities and games (internet resources) Using the Survey module to study and reflect on course activity Using peer-review modules like Workshop, giving students more control over grading and even structuring the course in some ways Conducting active research on oneself, sharing ideas in a community of peers

  •  ”a lot of people find that giving students the ability to teach is a valuable learning process” – Martin Dougiamas.
  • A lot of people want that secure private place in the LMS with big gates, with students needing to gain competencies and knowledge.  Many people really want this “Content Pump” focus, becuase it is what they need. Others use it as a community of practitioners, connected activities, content created by students and teachers alike and many methods of assessment. These are the two ends of the spectrum of usage.
  • Moodle has two roles: to be progressive and integrate with things coming up, and a drag and drop UI, with innovate workflows and improve media handling and mobile platforms to be conservative and improve  security and usability and assessment , accredition, detailed management tracking and reports and performance and stability
  • Since Moodle 1.9 came out three years ago,  March 2008 and most are still using the three year old code which has had fixes applied since then (1.9.11 is the current release.) The support for 1.9 will continue until the middle of 2012 as it is understood that it will be a big move to Moodle2.   “If you are going to Moodle2, you may as well go to Moodle 2.1 as it is better with 6 months more work” .
  • However, the ongoing support for each release will be 1 yr moving to the future. Moodle will be released every 6 months which enables the organisations to plan their upgrade times ahead of time.
  • What will be in Moodle 2.1? Performance Restore 1.9 backups Quiz/question refactor Page course format Interface polishing Official Mobile app (there now is a Mobile division)
  • HQ are working on an official app which uses Moodle 2 built-in web services. This provides a secure access to the data in Moodle 2 for people who have accounts in Moodle which greatly benefits mobile apps.
  • Moodle HQ has looked at what is Mobile really good at and identified them one by one and implemented them.  This includes messaging, list of participants in your course, marking attendence (in class roll call). This will be for the iPhone first and then someone will make it for Android so it will lag behind, but will be the same.
  • What is going to happen in 2.2 and beyond?
  • Grading and Rubrics Competency Tracking (from activity level, course level, outside courses to generate a competency profile) Assignment (planning to combine all 4 into one type and simplify it) Forum (big upgrade probably based on OU Forum) Survey (to include feedback/questionnaire – being rewritten currently) Lesson Scorm 2 Improved reporting IMS LTI IMS CC (although it is in 1.9 needs to be redone)
  •  
    An important overview for any one using Moodle, especially useful for those contemplating an upgrade to 2.0 .  (I'll make the move when we have 2.1 or 2.2.)
