Moodle is a learning management system (LMS) which helps teachers and educators create an online platform for more adaptive and customized learning. Developed in 2002, it is free and open source software and is the most widely used LMS among both free and licenced products. It is being used by many small and large institutions to create and deliver courses online to their students. Moodle has many built-in features ranging from the basics such as file upload, assignments, quizzes, notifications and advanced features such as forums, quiz, wikis etc that can be used by learners. It also has many easy-to-install plugins such as attendance, reminders, analytics etc. to supplement these features.
The FOSSEE (Free/Libre and Open Source Software for Education) project at IIT Bombay (https://fossee.in) has been promoting Moodle, and other FLOSS, such as Scilab, Python, OpenFOAM, eSim, Osdag, OpenModelica, R, Drupal and Linux, and open source hardware, such as Arduino and OpenPLC. The FOSSEE Project is funded by NMEICT, Ministry of Education, Govt. of India.
Methodology of the Workshop
This will be a 3-day workshop spread over five days from 30 November to 4 December, with an expected effort of about four hours per day. The workshop will be conducted online through a hands-on learning mode, where every participant teacher will create their own course using the tutorials we provide. The tutorials are in the form of side-by-side How-To-Slides and videos.
Participants can pace the course at their own convenient slots. Every day there will be an interactive session of about 2 hours, during which deeper insights will be provided and task related doubts will be cleared. Those who cannot attend the sessions at the scheduled time can get their queries answered through discussion forums. At the end of the workshop, the participants will have a skeleton structure of the course they plan to teach in the near future, that they can take a backup and use it in their own moodle website.
Participants will be assigned tasks every day based on the material covered that day. Attendance is not mandatory for online interaction sessions. Course completion certificates will be awarded to all participants who complete all the assigned tasks to a satisfactory level.
