This project will use an e-learning strategy that involves the inclusion of specific weekly tasks for students to complete in the online space (GippsTAFE Online – Moodle). It is intended that these tasks will be building blocks for the students as they work towards their final assessments for each unit. Students will be encouraged to complete the tasks with specified time frames to ensure that collaborative activities, such as forums, function in a successful manner. This strategy is based on Gilly Salmon’s model which uses E-tivities to enhance online participation.
A document was prepared for use by the project team and teachers that listed Moodle Resources and Activities including a short description of each so that they can begin planning. Teachers were also referred to the, very useful, Moodle Guide for Teachers.
