I have only really got around to this now, apols been meaning to have good squint at Moodle.Net for some time. I really like it-great resource. Some lovely stuff on there.
A number of suggestions then, if I may:
-The timer-thingy...might it be worth scrapping it! I fail to see its purpose.
-Might a glossary/some sort of classification of the courses be useful? At the mo-tis like searching for a needle in a haystack... different age ranges, topics, some have learning objectives others don't...some have explanations about what is to come others don't and on....tis a real mish-mash.
-You know when peeps do the MCCCC, would it be an idea to ask them to design a best practice course/exemplar specifically for Moodle.Net?
-Is it worth mining the Teaching with Moodle MOOC and sending out a follow-up email seeking permission to use courses for Moodle.Net....to celebrate the great stuff on there...seems a shame those courses, and there are many, are just sitting in a database somewhere. I know the courses as they stand may need clearing of participant data-but the follow up email could ask for a fresh copy:
Email something like this:
It seems so long ago since we particpated in the Teaching with Moodle MOOC, yet we would like to celebrate your course and creativity, by adding it to Moodle.Net.
Please could you let us know if there is any problem with this? Also, ideally we would like to have an empty course rather than the course that has particpant data within it. Therefore, if you have time, could you upload your back up copy to Moodle.Net or just let us have it and we will do the rest.
The A team
Or something like that anyway.
