Niva Kaspi – Program Coordinator and Lecturer – ECC
Rachel Maissan – Student Learning Support Coordinator – HSA

The move to the new Navitas Core Moodle is an exciting opportunity to learn about the features and reflect on how you could enhance your learning and teaching context.

To support teachers to make the most of this Moodle upgrade, the teachers are able to access a range of resources and professional development offerings. One such offering is the 4-week facilitated course ‘Building in Navitas Core Moodle’. This course gives content creators and editors the opportunity to work in their own sandbox developing resources and activities which they showcase at the end.

The latest group has now finished the course and are showcasing their thoughts and final course designs. Come along to this regular event to see how the participants applied the various Moodle resources and activities to support their pedagogical aims, and watch as they take you on a tour of their Moodle spaces.

Today’s showcased activities:

Labels as hyperlinks & Socrative
In this presentation, Niva will demonstrate using labels as hyperlinks and linking these to books in Moodle. Niva will also talk about using Socrative and how it is used within ECC.

In this presentation, Rachel will demonstrate the use of ThingLink, which is an online software for annotating and sharing visual content. Rachel will discuss the main features of ThingLink and demonstrate its ease and ability to embed into Moodle.
