Our first demo course for the new Moodle Educational Demo Site has wrapped up nicely. Thanks to 40 participants from around the world, we generated some useful sample data and activities for people to see, dip in, even download and play with (now available at ‘standard’ Moodle Demo site ).
Most importantly, we hope that this course, and others like it in the future, helps people make the cognitive, personal leap from ‘this is just a piece of software‘ to ‘hey, that’s how I could (use it to) solve the X problem/realise the X idea/make X happen‘.
Here is the story, told in a clip.
Now, you are kindly invited to have your say in building resources like this, together with people who participated in Water!
Hear what the plan for edu-demo site is, then help us make it better in an ‘open microphone’ and shared whiteboard Elluminate session this Sunday/Monday (depending on your timezone).
I for one want Moodle to be the shining light not JUST in providing an awesomely flexible, #1 LMS but also in generating great ideas and examples from and for its huge community of users about of how to use it well where and when it matters most – ‘on the ground’, with people.
