9:00–10:15am Designing in Moodle to Serve Your Syllabus
You’ve put a lot of thought into the methods by which students will approach and engage with your material in the classroom. This workshop will explore strategies for building a Moodle page that extends your classroom teaching style into the online environment, and that is integrated into the development of your course over the term.We’ll look at ways of using Moodle to stage and prepare for in-class activities, and for reflection and analysis after class. We’ll explore the potential of thematic and project-based modules. Drawing from your and other participants’ syllabi, we’ll think through concrete scenarios of how you might use Moodle to cultivate students’ skills, knowledge, and habits of mind.

Digital cameras, mp3s and streaming television shows are commonplace now, but how do you get your analog content into the digital age? We all have collections of photos and slides, films and videotapes, and cassette tapes and records that we’d love to at least have copies of in digital form, but how to go about it? In this workshop you can explore many options that are available for digitizing right here on campus, mostly for free!

10:30–11:45am Distributing Course Materials in Moodle
One of the functions of Moodle most appreciated by students is the ability to deliver course content online. Articles and book chapters in word or pdf format, audiovisual files, even research data if it exists in a digital format, you can distribute it using Moodle and make it available to students at any time and in any place. Moodle courses are secure so only your class participants can access online content. This session will cover the ins and outs of adding and managing content files you upload, links that point to other web pages, and how to type (or copy and paste) directly into Moodle.

10:30–11:45am Google Sites Roundtable
As part of the college’s agreement with Google, we have 100GB of space we can use to develop LCsites, or Google Sites associated with the “lclark.edu” Google presence. At the same time, Information Technology needs to decommission the legacy (~ site) web server and help active ~ websites transition to a new web host. Join us for a conversation about how this LCsites best fits into other web publishing options for faculty at L&C.
