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!
