Session Title: Moodle Automation & Streamlining Synchronization
Time & Date: 12:40 P.M. – 1:55 P.M., Wednesday, June 17, 2009
Location: Student Union Building (SUB) Partyroom
Session Description: In conjunction with BCcampus, VIU was the lead institution in the Moodle Collaborative Project that brought together Capilano, NVIT, SFU, College of the Rockies, and Douglas College. Through this project it was determined that Moodle would be a viable Learning Management System (LMS) for our BCcampus community partners. During the past three years, here at VIU we have been extending and enhancing the online learning environment and have developed a number of technological advances and improvements in the methods of delivering online courses and programs.
At the present time, VIU Online uses a variety of unique methods and strategies for the design and development of content and course materials that we believe other institutions would be interested in seeing in action. Also, we are in the process of developing automation processes that will streamline our procedures for enrolment, account management, course creation and population, as well as the customization of our online learning environment that will greatly improve the experience for our students and as well as for our faculty and staff.
We would like to take the opportunity to present and share our experiences and solutions at the Canadian e-Learning Conference through the delivery of a “Poster Presentation”.
