Moodle is the college’s academic learning management system (LMS). Faculty can use Moodle to offer course content for online, seated, and hybrid courses. Academic Affairs and Information Technology Services offer in-person training to faculty. Moodle developed training videos are also available to faculty for extended support. As well as LinkedIn Learning training videos.
Another great tool for the students to utilize is Moodle’s mobile app.
This allows students to check schedules, messages, assignments and more from a mobile device. They can directly upload photos or other items directly into Moodle. Thanks to Nick Rackers for this suggestion.
Engage in discussions outside class in real time or at your own convenient time. Focus discussion on a specific task or assignment.
Create a Q&A thread for the class and ask that students post questions there instead of contacting you by email. You can also encourage students to answer questions.
Create a “water cooler” thread for students to chat about topics unrelated to the class. This allows students to connect with each other and helps build social presence in the course.
Pose questions relevant to the module content for discussion and reflection.

Panapto will be shown directly in the Moodle course and will remain in the course. It is already attached to the course and students can go back and watch it if you record it.
