Session is pretty full..looks like online coursework might be the big thing this year.
A person in front of me has an Asus Eee. Wow that screen is tiny. Glad I didn’t get one.
Presenter came on a few minutes befpre they started – This is not a how to session, it is about the hardships and stumbling blocks leading up to implementation.
Jim Remington – carrolton farmers branch isd
Virtual campus for credit recovery, hybrid courses, online courses
Giving the history of Moodle
Easy to manage
Functional and flexible
Started small – 1-2 courses
Any digital content can be put into Moodle.
Directive came from CTO
Remotelearner.net – outsourced maintenance, help desk support, they put in modules, etc. Cost is about $2 per student.
Still using per built courses (licensed) until courses can be written in house.
Utilizing passthrough logins to licensed content
For not being a how to session, there a lot of how to questions.
question about credit earned course – for students who are not in a brick and mortar classroom. Health course is in development, used it for summer school course.
