Join us for the Moodle Academy webinar “Using AI tools to create primary school Moodle content” on Wednesday 24th April, 12:00 UTC

3 days 22 hours ago
by Sandra Matz.  

We invite you to register for the Moodle Academy free webinar “Using AI tools to create primary school Moodle content”, on Wednesday 24th April, 12:00-13:00 UTC. At this webinar, we will welcome Dr Alexandros Kofteros, Teacher, EU CodeWeek.Ambassador.

One of the challenges of using Moodle to create courses for students to interact with, is the time required for the teacher to gather quality, licence-free resources for use in teaching, on an almost weekly, if not also daily, basis. Additionally, the requirement to cater to the different needs of individual students within the same classroom, makes the creation of content for courses an even more difficult job.

In this webinar, our invited speaker will focus on using AI tools to create content to support primary school students (ages 11 - 12) in various subjects. Alexandros will create audio, graphics and text to support teaching of Language, Environmental Education and Mathematics, including presentations for each subject.

This webinar is part of the course 'Moodle Academy webinars'. You have to be enrolled in this free course to register and join the webinar.

Register at Moodle Academy.

A Beautiful Gift at the Beautiful Gate

1 week 2 days ago

By Loretta Pehanich

This story is inspired by Acts 3:1–13. Before meeting the Apostles Peter and John after Christ’s Resurrection, I spent my days unproductively at the Beautiful Gate. Every morning family members would carry me there so I could beg, and any money I acquired they took to buy food for the extended family. I expected little, […]

When the Poem Comes to Life

1 week 6 days ago

By Eric Clayton

In the woods of central Maryland there sits an unassuming chair. It’s big, thick, and old. It’s set in its place, with wooden legs sinking into mud and grass and stone, overlooking a trickling spring. There’s no telling how many living creatures have settled in its wooden frame over the course of time: squirrels cracking […]

Continuing Friendship in the Easter Season

2 weeks 2 days ago

By Gretchen Crowder

I have a confession to make. I tend to forget about Jesus around a week or so into the Easter season each year. It is never intentional, but it happens more often than I want to admit. I think it is partially due to the fact that I tend to go all in these days […]

Allowing God to Work Through Ignatian Contemplation

2 weeks 6 days ago

By Rebecca Ruiz

In his book, The Ignatian Adventure, Kevin O’Brien, SJ, says that contemplation, in the Ignatian sense, “is more about feeling than thinking. Contemplation often stirs the emotions and inspires deep, God-given desires…we rely on our imaginations to place ourselves in a setting from the Gospels or in a scene proposed by Ignatius.” In a recent […]

Assuming Failure

3 weeks 2 days ago

By dotMagis Editor

For all the healing and hope Jesus had brought to perhaps thousands of people, there was no sign by this time that he had transformed the culture, powers, and societal structures of his time. After he died, abandoned by all but a few disciples, there was no sign of the Church he had asked Peter […]

Functionality with Moodle : the 2024 Integrations' Survey results are out!

3 weeks 3 days ago
by Carles Aguiló.  

Dear moodlers,

Our 2024 Integrations' Survey results are out and we're happy to share them with you! 🥳 We heard from users all across the globe and all across Moodle functions, and we're already devising a plan to hear from even more of you next year. Thanks to everyone that participated or spread the word!

The main goal of our research is to understand which types of tools and functionality our users want to see better integrated with Moodle, and as it begins to be tradition, when asking about  integrations, we get great feedback about them, and also about Moodle in general, as you can see in the quotes section on slide 20 and forward.

As a sneak peak of its contents, I will share that the 2 most popular areas of interest continue to be:

  1. Content creation, and
  2. Video conference, or Virtual classroom for the savvy.

But Learning Analytics has taken 3rd place, the new Generative AI takes 4th place, and Plagiarism & Proctoring surges to the 6th.

Happy reading everyone! And happy break if you get one.

Best,

       Carles🤓
