In term four of 2008 we ran an online professional development course for teachers through Moodle. The aim was simply to be an introduction to the world of web2.0 and how it might impact on the classroom. The course was undertaken over five weeks with the following areas of focus each week.
- Social bookmarking
- RSS and personal homepage tools
- Collaborative document creation including wikis
- Digital story telling online
In addition we had weekly meetings using the Elluminate conferencing software.
Having benefitted greatly from the opensource community I am offering the course as a download, as a very small way of giving something back. You will need your own Moodle installation, or you can always get a free one at ninehub.com.
