The Moodle learning management system facilitates posting and grading of assignments, administering assessments, facilitating online discussions, organizing documents, and tracking learner progress. This workshop will introduce the Moodle system as you create activities and add resources to a course shell provided for the workshop. Learn the basics as you evaluate this resource for your learners. Bring a laptop/tablet to participate in this hands-on workshop.

Session Title: Open Education Resources (OER) in Adult Education


Description
Open Education Resources for Adult Educators
The printing press was a world-altering invention, so is the Internet. Could the next information revolution come from something so simple as the act of sharing? Come learn about Open Education Resources (OER), what are they, where and how do you find them as well as understand Creative Commons licensing and how you can create and share your own OER. Discover how to find and implement re-usable, re-mixable, re-sharable materials for your classroom. Working together with the facilitator, you will identify open licensed materials, review OER repositories and review a few tools to manage your new resources.
