Course details

How will I be assessed?

Each course follows a similar format for both formative and summative assessment.

  • Formative: The main content of the course requires the completion of a number of quizzes, based on information provided via Moodle books. 
     
  • Summative: Two assessed tasks are to be submitted: the first task asks how you would advise your colleagues on how to tackle a scenario, the second task asks if you have encountered this scenario before and how did you proceed? 


Course details:

  • Duration: You have 6 months to complete all 6 self-directed courses.  Please set aside 6-8hrs individual study per course.
     
  • Designed for:  Teachers, Learning Designers and Learning Technologists with demonstrable experience of using Moodle.
