Tuesday, November 25: Introduction to WOU Online / Moodle
Come find out what this new online course management system has to offer. You'll get a chance to create your own course shell and play around with many of the tools. WOU Online uses a program called Moodle, and it has many of the same features as WebCT (which the university still offers), but it is configured so you use the same login and password you use to login to the campus network. You can put course content in a password-protected environment, facilitate online discussions, and create multiple choice quizzes, among other things. Location: HL108.
