Thank you to all 175 people who participated in this survey! We thought people might be interested in some of the results, so we're sharing them below. We've omitted anything that involves personally-identifying information.Note: winners of the Amazon vouchers and credit for the Moodle online store will be notified in the next 10 days directly by email!
Question 2 asked what about the educator's state of mind when looking for resources. Responses included:
- "Sometimes or most often times rushed and in a hurry to quickly find something to post."
- "Curious. Driven. Often overwhelmed, sometimes frustrated, by extensive resources which aren't quite right."
- "They never quite fit my style of teaching, that's why I always feel that
I need to adapt them or provide additional material. Therefor I usually
look/hope for a CC-BY-(SA) logo somewhere."
Question 7 asked what kind of things educators use professional social networks for. Some of the responses included:
- "Staying in contact with associates, present and past. Also, maintaining relationships with experts in the field."
- "I tweet when involved in a conference, and publish links to the papers or workshops that I've given or participated in."
- "Network to find contacts and ideas. Keep up on trends. PD opportunities."
Question 8 gave educators a magic wand and asked what they would like MoodleNet to be able to do. Responses included:
- "It needs to be more than just an area to share content/insights. Having a
community around it that might meetup in real life to support and
encourage the community to share."
- "Leave the service very simple, if you are creating a course, that is on the homepage. Easy navigation and quick access."
- "It would be a combination of Google, Pinterest, Facebook, Slack and
Twitter. An interconnected mesh of everything education related. A place
where educators could laugh together, support and inspire each other.
An instant search for resources from all platforms. A place to save
stuff you find. A way to discuss stuff you find...a place for
institutions to share their stuff with just their staff...great
organization of stuff that is shared, tagging, categories, collections
etc..super fast search where results include resources, people, courses,
paid support options, help, etc. etc. Social media options include chat
rooms/channels, person to person, group to group...collection based,
organization based, topic based etc.."
Finally, we asked if there were any other comments. There were many, including:
- "I don't shop at Amazon."
- "I look forward to MoodleNet and believe that if it is anything like the
rest of the Moodle community and product that it will be an excellent
tool for people and can't wait to be a part of it."
- "Thanks for your efforts, I hope survey results will help deciding the MoodleNet design and interaction of users."
