Fall 2013 Sites Are Here

Most Fall 2013 Moodle sites are now available in Moodle. After logging in you’ll see them listed under “Future Courses”.

If you had a Moodle site for a previous version of your course, email moodle@hampshire.edu and we can import the content over for you into the new site.

May Moodle Sessions

Want to get some ideas for your Fall courses? We’re running a series of demonstrations of Moodle features that other faculty have used with success.

Assignments and Feedback in Moodle
See how students can submit work via Moodle and check out the options for giving your feedback to them through Moodle as well. There are many handy tools for keeping track of who’s submitted what and streamlining the assignment review process!
Tuesday, May 7th at 10 a.m. -or- Wednesday May 8th at 2 p.m.

Further Frontiers in Moodle
This offering will be tailored to the interested of the participants. We can look at Discussion Forums, Wiki’s, the “Workshop” peer-review activity, the “Quiz” activity, or whatever people are interested in.
Tuesday, May 7th at 2 p.m. -or- Wednesday, May 8th at 10 a.m.

RSVP to akinney@hampshire.edu thanks!

Also remember that we have a couple “Teaching with Moodle: Conversations” videos which show how other faculty have used Moodle. Check it out and perhaps get some ideas for next term!

Accessible Course Materials

Faculty received an announcement this week asking for them to start considering the accessibility of their course materials.

As you build your fall courses please take a look at your course materials, and if you have any PDF’s that look like this…

… please take steps to get a newer, cleaner version or just get in touch with us for help. We have a full write-up about accessible materials here with more examples of what we are talking about.  Having clean, clear version of readings benefits ALL students due to their versatility and legibility.

Thanks and get in touch if you need help or have questions!
