On Tuesday, March 14, 2008, FITS hosted the first Moodle showcase of the semester. Art Evans and Linda Elman, both from the department of Modern Languages, presented their course sites, and discussed the different ways they use Moodle. For Art’s French music course, he showed how he uses streaming audio to create a playlist of songs from different artists. Art also demonstrated how to create an online quiz, and talked about moving materials from Blackboard.

Linda showed her Spanish courses (which she displays in Spanish!), and talked about the articles and images she uses. Linda also demonstrated how she uses colorful labels to separate the information in her Topics. There were several questions from the instructors who attended, and a great Moodle discussion was had by all!

Moodle Showcase Events

On Wednesday, October 3rd, FITS held its first Moodle Showcase in the Julian auditorium. Three instructors – Matthew Balensuela, Jeff Hansen and Dave Guinee – presented examples of how they were using Moodle resources that were comparable to features in Blackboard. One of the many highlights included Dave showing the Moodle site that he uses as part of a collaborative class through NITLE. Several of those present offered suggestions and observations from their own courses. It was a great discussion!

On Wednesday, October 24, the “Doing ‘New’ with Moodle” showcase, also held in Julian, featured Mandy Henk, Librarian, Professor Rebecca Schindler, and Veronica Pejril, Coordinator of MITC. Mandy demonstrated how you can use Moodle’s discussion boards and embedded YouTube videos in Moodle to communicate with a team of staff members. Rebecca showed how subscribing to RSS feeds in Moodle adds an up-to-date resource for students, while Roni demonstrated how Moodle handles sound files for her students’ music technology projects.
