Well, week 3 of our Learn Moodle 3.4 Basics MOOC is exactly all about being in it – learning – together. (Note: the music references have nothing to do with our MOOC except for fun listening while you read this blog post maybe?)
Collaboration, helping each other and sharing resources openly are key to the way we advance our open source project with Moodle.
So how did our participants learn together in week 3?
- Participants shared their practice courses;
- Moodlers peer assessed each other workshop submissions;
- Organising meetups to learn together;
- Everyone continued to support each other in forums, answering questions or generally responding to comments.
Meeting in the coffee shop with some faculty who are taking the #learnmoodle course.
I wonder if the expectation of meeting with others f2f to talk about progress helps participants complete an online course – massive or otherwise?

Thanks to all participants, it’s been a great experience to explore your courses #learnmoodle

Great! I have already assessed the 5 submissions from my peers. They all did a great job!

Moodle HQ also jumped in the bandwagon of learning together with our community manager, Helen Foster, who screenshared as her test student demonstrating how to do the peer assessments during the live session last Friday, 26 January.
It is not long now until our Learn Moodle 3.4 Basics MOOC finishes!
This is in fact our last week and we are looking forward to awarding our dedicated participants and helpers with their certificates soon.
