In Learn Moodle 3.3 MOOC you will also find out how to use the new and exciting features and improvements that will be available in Moodle 3.3.

What you need to get involved
Learn Moodle MOOC will run for four weeks and will require a commitment of 3 to 4 hours a week.
Moodle’s community educator, Mary Cooch, will demonstrate how features and functionalities in Moodle work and how you can use them to empower your learning environments.
Some activities are also included for participants to complete throughout the course and you can also connect, discuss and seek assistance from all participants in the Learn Moodle forums.

Participants’ feedback on Learn Moodle MOOC
We’ve had so many participants comment positively on the Learn Moodle MOOC courses they have attended. Here are some comments we’d like to share:
“Although I did my graduate work online and have taught face to face in classrooms for years, this Moodle course got me seriously thinking about new ways to use the online format to meaningfully connect with my students like I am accustomed to doing in a live classroom. Very informative.”
Kenneth Brown – USA
