Moodle 3.1 Intermediate Workshop

Overview:

In line with the Outcome-Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL) approach adopted in the University, teachers are encouraged to use rubrics to grade students’ work. With group work and group projects are being widely adopted as part of the learning activity in the University, it would be useful to know how the grouping functions in Moodle could facilitate group activities and group assignment.
This hands-on workshop will provide participants with a more in-depth usage of Moodle activities, like grading assignment with rubric, forming a group for group assignment/discussion and using OU wiki/blog. In addition, new features in Moodle 3.1 like tracking students’ performance and taking attendance for teachers to better understand students’ learning progress in the course will also be covered.

Facilitated by: CHTL
Date & Time : Wednesday, 10 January 2018, 2:30 – 5:00 p.m.
Venue : DLB302, 3/F, David C Lam Building, Shaw Campus
