The BLOOC - Bloomsbury Online Course

Improve your Moodle skills and enhance your online/blended teaching by participating in the BLOOC 

The BLOOC (Bloomsbury Online Course) is enrolling now for teaching staff in the Bloomsbury Colleges. It starts on Monday 16th June 2014

If you teach at one of the five Bloomsbury Colleges (Birkbeck, IOE, LSHTM, RVC and SOAS) and want to find out more about using Moodle tools to create more interactive and dynamic online and blended learning classrooms, then enrol on the BLOOC.

The BLOOC is free and open to teaching staff in Birkbeck, IOE, LSHTM, RVC and SOAS. It is located on the BLE hub, to which all five college Moodle sites are connected.

The course is fully online and will take only 3 hours of your week; it will last 4 weeks in total, but the course is designed so you can take it as a whole, or simply pop in for the weeks that especially interest you.

Week One - using audio and video
Week Two - encouraging student production with wikis and blogs
Week Three - teaching synchronously in virtual classrooms
Week Four - subverting multiple choice questions for deep learning

If you've never taken an online course before, this is your chance to experience what it is like. You will become part of a network of Bloomsbury educators and you will be invited to meet up in person, discuss experiences and provide feedback when the course ends at our e-learning fayre on 16 July 2014 at the IOE.

ENROL NOW to join us in June and be part of the BLOOC.
