Learn RVC Learn - A Revolutionary new SPOC !

Learn RVC Learn is an online course, supplemented by weekly face-to-face training which begins in March at the RVC.  The Small Private Online Course (SPOC) aims to teach staff how to use RVC Learn. (our name for Moodle)

It covers all of the basic functions of Learn, as well as some more advanced features, all of which are taught in 4 weekly modules:

Module 1 – Introduction to RVC Learn
Module 2 - Adding Resources and Activities
Module 3 – Using Communication Tools
Module 4 – Using Online Assessment Tools

This unique online course can be taken in the users own time, and each module on the course should take no longer than 2 hours to complete.  Face to Face training will be provided for each module, at each campus, as well as an introduction to the course in the first week and a wrap up session in the final week.   Staff can choose whether to complete the whole course, or take selective modules they may be interested in.  The face to face sessions are not mandatory and will be run on a drop in basis.

Each member of staff that sign up for the course will receive their own test course in RVC Learn in order to practice and implement the subjects taught each week.

The course has been developed in response to the eMedia staff survey, which indicated staff require more training in RVC Learn.  It also addresses many of the concerns of staff who tell us that they are worried about the  gathering pace of technology and how to keep up with the latest developments, along with concerns over digital literacy.
