This course is for teachers, trainers, tutors, facilitators, lecturers and mentors from any discipline and any level of education, who are interested in developing more advanced skills in how to set up and use a VLE (Moodle) to offer online courses. The course is run entirely online, using the same VLE. Previous experience of an online learning environment as an administrator is required for this course.
The VLE SMARTER training course teaches you to use some of the more complex VLE tools and functions, which are not covered in our VLE Starter course. The course is hands-on and experiential – from the first week of the course itself you will be working with your own installation which is either already hosted by your institution, or hosted by us for you (preferable). You will add new elements to your course as you learn about them each week, via tutor support, peer discussion, documentation, and a range of online videos. For the duration of the course you will be provided with your own webspace with your own VLE installation if you do not already have one. At the end of this time you will be shown how to export your course so that it can be used in your own installation. We use the latest stable version.
