On March 23, we launched a special edition of our Learn Moodle Basics MOOC to help all those getting started with online learning worldwide.
Over the past weeks, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of people starting to use Moodle for the first time as thousands of schools, universities and workplaces have migrated to online learning platforms during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help educators ease their transition to online learning during these challenging times, we launched a special edition of our Learn Moodle Basics MOOC: a free course to learn the foundations of teaching online with Moodle.
Over a thousand people started the MOOC on March 23rd, and many more keep joining daily to start their teaching journey with our e-learning platform, with the guidance of our Moodle HQ Education team.
The Moodle community steps up
Our community is a core part of our organisation, and experienced Moodlers are always up to help others. Many educators, developers, instructional designers and Moodle Partners worldwide usually get involved in our twice-yearly Learn Moodle MOOCs to lend a hand to those taking their first steps with Moodle. And we’re delighted to see that they’re doing it again.
Many of the Moodle community members, including our own Moodle HQ team, are getting very involved in this special Learn Moodle MOOC edition: answering questions in the Forums discussions in as many languages as they can, making subtitles for our training videos, and even offering to translate the course materials to make them as multilingual as possible.
A big thank you to all of you supporting educators worldwide.
