Have you attended a Moodle Moot before?
If you know the blue top hat, you know you’ve seen it! We are proud to be the first Moodle Premium Integrator, and have attended Moots worldwide! We love being a part of the global Moodle community and travelling the world (when possible) to discuss today’s challenges and how to best solve them. We have also already enjoyed participating in some of this year’s online Moots!
What is the title of your presentation at this year’s Moot?
Creating Instructor Immediacy in an Online Learning Environment: A Crucial Step for Learner Success.
Give us a brief description of what to look forward to.
Instructor Immediacy – the perception that instructors care about their students – is closely correlated to learner success. Just because we’re online doesn’t mean that instructor immediacy isn’t important, or that we can’t do it! Although eLearning allows for a bigger physical separation, we don’t need to experience a relational or educational gap. Using proper course design and IntelliBoard analytics, we’ll discuss how to bridge the gap!
Why have you chosen to present this topic?
Being a “reformed” college professor with a PhD in Training and Performance Improvement has created a passion for educating techniques in course design that lead to higher rates of retention, engagement, and enjoyment.
Share with us one tool or technique you or your client implemented while using Moodle which has benefited you and your organisation!
