Welcome to the course – Basic Training in Designing a Moodle Course. I am Ms. Mickalia Peck, your course facilitator. This Basic Moodle Training course gives you an introduction to the Learning Management System (LMS) used here at the University of Technology, Jamaica. The LMS is called UTechOnline and uses the Moodle Platform. This course is designed to help you create a course in Moodle and populate it with resources. All activities will be completed online. In order to do so you must create a course in the Sandbox, which is another Moodle site that the Office of Distance Learning uses to facilitate development of courses. The course is competency-based which means that you will receive badges after successful completion of each unit and a certificate at the end of the course.
This short course will take approximately 4 hours to complete, but is self-paced. It will be open for two weeks after the start date.
From the Office of Distance Learning, I wish you every success as you create your very own course in Moodle.
