Moodle 2.1.2 and the eLearning thing

November 20, 2011 Leave a comment

There’s just too much information out there regarding learning management systems (LMS); if you listen to it all, you’ll never make a decision. I wish I could say the process was going to be easy! A weighted checklist kind of thing that covers costs, core or vendor supplied must items for lms, other criteria, pedagogical requirements (teaching stuff/frameworks) and maintenance agreemnets items is a good start.

Just because a particular LMS has the highest weight doesn’t mean it’s the one for you; maybe you don’t have all the information, etc. The other crucial thing is the expectations of those staff and students who are to use the LMS; will there be “real training” provided or just a 1 or 2 day “training” kind of thing. Why is this important? The LMS won’t get used if people don’t feel comfortable!

There’s so much more, but suffice it to say– if you don’t get really involved yourself in the process, what makes you think you’ll get involved later.

What’s the best way to use social media like twitter in a virtual and normal classroom environment using best practices? With software like Adobe Connect and Moodle, is it even necessary or is it overkill?

eLearning is a broad topic and has many meanings depending on whom you speak with. So to start out, I would like to define anumber of terms; eLearning, virtual classroom, and learning management system (LMS). I wanted to do this we seem not to be keeping up with technology so well and grasping this keys or brass ring of eLearning can help leverage the new wave of workplace productivity and the way we learning general.
