Draft - #Moodle Course Planner

Image Source: http://www.tarantulas.net/funny/graphics/demotivation/planning.jpg

"What if I had a simple Moodle course planner that would remind me what options were available to me?" I asked myself yesterday. "And, what if I added suggestions for OpenWeb tools--like the list of 48+ embed tools--that would help me remember just what was out there?"

This past Friday found me attending meetings and working on a partial course begun by a previous team member, Diana Benner (co-host of Moodle Mayhem and online learning specialist for Dallas ISD). I was intrigued by the course but wanted to make some adjustments, especially in light of our conversations at the TCEA MoodleMoot and my own appreciation for what makes an "Online Learning Workshop."

Although I didn't make it that far--meetings--I did get a chance to play around with a Moodle Course Planning tool. At this point, I'm not sure I have it exactly the way I want it but thought I'd share it with you and see what sparks might fly. I'm also not sure if I mean for it to be a 1-2 pager planning form where you check off items, or an online document you fill out. Either way, it may be too bulky or too much to consider for a newbie. However, *I* need it when I'm developing courses because it's too much to conceptualize a Moodle course and remember what I'm doing module by module (topic by topic).

I also had the stray thought that maybe I wasn't as learner-centered as I needed to be...my focus is on course goals and correlations to expectations. But I'm not sure how to begin with learner-centered interests. Well, enough disclaimers as to what it doesn't or can't do.

You can view the GoogleDoc online here, and I've tried to paste the table below:
