2 Minute Moodles – second batch cooked!

The second lot of 2 Minute Moodles is finally done. This one deals mostly with how to add things like files, folders, weblinks, webpages etc. to a course, navigate around the site and how to keep an eye on things.

This is my first formal dip into the sharing world of Web 2.0 and I have to admit I got very pleasantly surprised to see that within a couple of weeks of publishing the first lot of 2 Minute Moodles on Teacher Tube, I have had close to 900 views. I can just imagine a reaction of a student with their project getting hundreds of ‘hits’, comments and perhaps good ratings from around the world.

On that note, I recently recorded the class work on globalisation in my Career & Enterprise class, made a rough edit of it and posted it on our school Moodle (to see the clip, click here). It is often very hard work to get a word or other academic ‘output’ or insight out of many of these guys in the video but now … they want me to post the video not on some “poxy TeacherTube” but on YouTube (“the real one that everyone watches” as they would say). The enthusiasm has gone up several levels and, yes you guessed it – they want to do more of it while clearly learning and owning it too.

Just another example how technology CAN make a real difference.

OK, now the 2 Minute Moodles…

    Hi Tomaz
    We also run Moodle in our college so these videos are an excellent resource. Thanks for sharing them :-).
    You might also be interested in adding this blog to the International Edubloggers Directory at http://edubloggerdir.blogspot.com and sharing with that community. There are a couple of Moodle experts already there but the more the better!
