This course is aimed at teachers, trainers, tutors, facilitators, lecturers and mentors from any discipline and any level of education, who are interested in learning how to set up and use a VLE (Moodle) to offer online courses. The course is run entirely online, in the same VLE. No previous experience of any online learning environment is required for this course.
The VLE Starter training course teaches you to set up and use one of the leading virtual learning management tools with learners, in any discipline. The course is hands-on and experiential – from the first week of the course itself you will be setting up and developing a sample course for your own learners. You will add new elements to your sample course as you learn about them each week via tutor support, peer discussion, documentation, and a range of on-line videos. By the end of the course you will have created a sample course for your learners. For the duration of the course you will be provided with your own webspace with your own VLE installation. At the end of this time you will be shown how to export your courses so that they can be used in your own installation. We use the latest stable version of the VLE.
