In this session we will explore how to use various Moodle activities and resources to transfer face-to-face teaching skills and presence to the online classroom; learning to establish presence when we can't be present. Based on research student focused research, this session will delve into the teaching presence behaviors students most desire in the online classroom, pairing each with a Moodle activity. Participants will have access to a Moodle classroom with examples and activities, and will also have the opportunity to share their advice, tips and things to avoid when teaching in an online classroom.

With the ability to string courses into programs; address the unique needs of multiple audiences seamlessly; automate anything and everything with dynamic rules; and a flexible and intuitive report-builder; it seems that Moodle Workplace has something for almost everyone! In this workshop, we’ll provide a hands-on, guided tour of Moodle’s latest platform with a focus on the features that set it apart from the Moodle we all know and love! Every workshop participant will be provided with their own Moodle Workplace site for the workshop and for the month following the Moot for further exploration.
GSuite tools create an environment that fosters the 4 Cs for teachers and students! In this hands-on session, we will explore how Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Forms can be used in face-to-face and asynchronous learning environments. From content you can use to deliver lessons to your students to empowering your students to create, GSuite can do it all! We will go through many creative ways to use these tools and sprinkle in some Google tips & tricks, too!

In this session we will take one participant’s Weebly, website, or other current setup and use it to demonstrate how to “move in” to the Moodle world. Throughout the demonstration we will pause to give you time to do the same, answer questions, and show and tell what you’ve built.
