The BLE is excited to announce its new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will start 1st May. The course is a 3-week romp through some of the popular technologies that educators use to make their learning engaging, interactive and dynamic.
Each week will focus on a particular topic:
1. Using multimedia for teaching and learning
2. Encouraging student collaboration
3. Formative assessment and feedback
Participants will read, watch videos, research, do activities, discuss and complete a practical, peer reviewed assessment each week. The emphasis is on gaining a wide range of experience. Although a few concepts are introduced along the way, this is a hands-on course, and participants should find many ideas to incorporate into their teaching.
This course is aimed at teachers, lecturers and instructors who have little experience using online tools and technology for teaching purposes but who have basic familiarity with the Internet and online learning environments.
