Moodle is already a powerful course management system. You can extend its functionality in multiple ways. This presentation explores the possibilities of using Moodle in conjunction with the #ePortfolio and collaboration system Mahara that connects to your Moodle easily.
By using Mahara, your learners can create their own personal learning environments and also create portfolios that you can assess directly in Moodle.
How to change Learning with an ePortfolio
Adding an ‘e’ to learning or changing from analog to digital does not necessarily mean better instruction or learning. To make learning successful and a lasting process there is more that needs to be changed.
In my presentation I would like to demonstrate how the group centered features of a Moodle course can be extended to individualized learning in a Mahara ePortfolio and how Mahara can empower individual learners to show their competencies, reflect about their learning and share results with specific target groups.
Above #Mahara and #Moodle presentations were given and are available on #BBB video recording @ the 2015 #Moodle #iMoot15 , see schedule.
What is iMoot?
iMoot is an annual event where the #Moodle community, practitioners, administrators and decision makers meet to share the best practice in online learning.
iMoot15 – Everyone Matters
The theme for this year’s iMoot is “Everyone matters!”
In our globalised world we see every day that successful solutions are those that include the contributions of all affected parties.
We want this year’s iMoot to be inclusive and open for participants from all kinds of backgrounds; be it trainer, teacher, administrator, developer or learners that want to share their Moodle stories.
We are aiming for anyone to participate in the iMoot that wants to, no matter their socioeconomic standing, age, ability, or the devices they use, because we know that successful Moodle use needs everybody.
