#Moodle Module Presos
There is so much inspiring work "out in the Community" online about Moodle, that I sometimes wonder, what do I have to contribute? And, will that contribution be worth it? However, having chatted with other persons about THEIR fears, I know they have exactly the same concerns. For that reason, I decide to share my stuff even though it's not always up to world-class standards...and for one colleague, that just isn't an option. And, I still think it's valuable to share our less than perfect products with the world. So, inspired by those of you out there sharing what you know, I stumble along in the dark after you.
Although I have a Moodle Module preso online at Slideshare, and folks in my workshop audiences on Thursday and Friday did not know about 99% of the modules I shared (so I rate it a success since they were attentive and took copious notes), I personally wasn't pleased with how I organized the slideshow. Remembering that any presentation is about creating a memorable experience for the audience, the focus on my session was on the power of community over individual development, the need to tap into a professional learning network--via Twitter hashtags and Moodle Mayhem email group. . .really, the power of unexpected learning experiences (e.g. MS Office add-on for Moodle and how I found out about that using the search.twitter.com).
One of my other goals for that presentation was to emphasize the instructional applications. I ran out of time in preparing, so settled for a simple list of modules I prefer. However, embedding each module in a solid instructional application would have been powerful...you know, like embedding the use of JingProject in a JingCrit in TeachPaperless' example.
Here's my slidedeck:
But when you go to Slideshare, you'll find a few others that I think are nicely organized, even better in my opinion than mine.
Here is one slideshow that was made 3 years ago...how did I miss this in my search for other presentations on Moodle Modules? That said, I like the way the screenshots simulate the install process. In my session, I actually did this on the screen with a localhost server with Moodle loaded and modules to install. Otherwise, I like the presentation of the different modules and the organization.
This second slideshow focuses on the use of ONE Moodle module, Face to Face. What this module allows you to do is as follows:
Face-to-face activities are used to keep track of in-person (e.g. classroom) trainings which require advance booking. Each activity is offered in one or more identical sessions. These sessions can be given over multiple days. Reminder messages are sent to users and their managers a few days before the session is scheduled to start. Confirmation messages are sent when users sign-up for a session or cancel.
This module may be of interest to administrators looking for a way to provide event management support for blended learning environments.
In other words, it may have been the module I was looking for to facilitate online registration for folks for an upcoming conference in May that might have up to 500 participants but all events were "face to face." The slide show below goes into detail on how this module works.
