Over 200 UCL colleagues have already joined UCL Arena Digital, our free online course to help improve Moodle skills and enhance your online/blended learning.
We are in Week 2 but you are still welcome to join.
The course is fully online and will take only 2-3 hours of your week. The course is made up of three Units. Each unit will last 2 weeks and there will be breaks in between Units. Each fortnight will end with a live online webinar where you can share your experiences with your colleagues on the course.
The course is designed so you can take all three Units, or simply pop in for the Units that especially interest you.
- Unit 1: multimedia – the current one – find out how to create and embed media and interactive tools in Moodle to enliven the online environment for your students.
- Unit 2: communication – discover ways of using tools inside and outside of Moodle you can use to communicate with students and support their collaboration with each other.
- Unit 3: assessment and feedback – explore ways of using the online environment to create new kinds of assessment and give feedback to students.
Unit 1 started last week and will continue to Thursday 12 March, when we will conclude with a webinar.
Even if you missed last week there is still time to get involved and all the materials will also be available afterwards.
