You can either capture the presentation as a video (more complex and requires more bandwidth) or you can export the written on Notebook pages as a pdf and upload the pdf.
I know many teachers who absolutely love the fact that they can write on the board, turn that into a pdf, and then upload it to Moodle.
This is how I use Moodle.
I save all class notebooks with all notes etc and put them up so students can either review the lesson or catch up if they missed it.
My only problem at the moment, given that Moodle is brand new to current workplace, is that most of my resources are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too big as I usually embed videos, powerpoint, weblinks, etc in them.
We're working on it!
I don't want to turn the notebook into a pdf, it isn't any smaller and loses interactivity so I direct all students to download the interactive notebook viewer for use at home. They have to register but that is usually done quite easily!
Hey Stef, thanks for the explanation on Smartboards. This was very helpful for me also. Taking distance learning courses seems to be the way to go for many students and professionals these days.
For our on-line degree programmes we use Moodle in combination with an on-line classroom (iLinc) and SmartBoard. This allows us to have students present in class and students attending remotely simultaneously and them having the same experience of the use of the SmartBoard. The sessions are recorded in iLinc and made available to any students who could not attend for later perusal.
Thank you everyone else who replied too!
Who is your target audience? What types of activities would you like to perform?
Anyways, I have seen smartboards put to good use when using tools such as Google Maps and this random word generator. The idea is that they are being used to stimulate discussion.
I don't quite understand that Ryan. SMARTboards are what you make of them.
1. For some they are a black/whiteboard, used to display materials., and updated chalk and talk!
2. For others they are an all singing all dancing drown your students in data machine - Death by PowerPoint is so much more efficient on a SMARTboard
3. Some others use them to display info and then to enhance learning through interactive activities.
All can then save the notebook/powerpoint and load onto an always available VLE to support students who wish to revisit the lesson or who may have missed it in the first place.
Whichever way you choose, SMARTboard plus Moodle (other educational software is available) saves paper and endless bouts of photocopying for that one student who loses everything!
I love using the Smart Notebook Viewer to view activities in Moodle. It adds an interactive element to Moodle that I love. I use the viewer found at: http://express.smarttech.com/#
