Post 5 of 8

Course title: E-learning in the classroom

Beneficiary: Dan ROTARIU

Period: 4th – 9th August 2013

The goals of the course were as follows:

  • Provide teachers with practical ideas for how they can incorporate technology into their existing lessons.
  • Familiarize teachers with current Internet trends and how they can be applied in the creation of an e-lesson.
  • Familiarize teachers with the uses and functions of the Moodle platform.
  • Allow teachers to create their own controlled test courses on the Moodle platform.
  • Provide teachers with the skills and knowledge necessary to create and implement their own e-learning platform.
  • Provide teachers with resources with which they can augment their e-learning content.
  • Allow teachers to share ideas and cultural differences with other nationalities from the EU
  • Provide teachers with an insight into Czech culture in the historical city of Prague.

This course was structured into 8 different training modules, each of which covers a different aspect of using e-learning in either a traditional classroom or an online setting. Coursework contained a mix of theoretical and practical knowledge, often allowing the teachers to interact with the e-learning systems in a hands-on way. We practiced the necessary skills in order to be able to effectively use our own e-learning systems with our own students.

Module 1 – E-teaching models (1.5 hours)

Module 2 – Methodology (1 hour)

The methodological approach:

We received the theoretical information that they need to effectively create and implement ourr own e-learning solutions. Using this theoretical knowledge, we completed several practical tasks designed to teach us how to properly and effectively use an e-learning platform. Each module will attempt to incorporate the existing knowledge and experience of the trainees in an effort to create a helpful learning environment while at the same time demonstrating the importance of collaboration and shared creation in the e-learning process. In addition, each trainee produced a sample e-lesson according to their backgrounds and needs. The instructor presented information, guide the students through the practical components, and offered feedback and suggestions.

In addition, a mailing list of participants was created in order to exchange ideas/experiences.
