Purpose of the Course Getting faculty to use the Colgate-sponsored LMS, Moodle can be a struggle. The latest data from the Fall 2018 report shows about 60% of our faculty use Moodle but we would like to increase the usage. It’s important that faculty adopt our learning management system for several reasons and students want all their classes to be visible on Moodle. (In a 2015 ECAR study, 56% of college students said they wished instructors would use an LMS.) For Colgate faculty, however, adopting the LMS has been easier said than done. Some of the common challenges that deter them from LMS adoption are lack of time, resistance to adopting new technologies, lack of training opportunities, and lack of support. This RLO will serve as training on the Google Course Kit feature of Moodle.
Audience Description The target audience is Colgate University teaching faculty who are new to using Moodle or need a refresher.
Major Course Objectives (Terminal) Instructors new to Moodle or anyone who would like a refresher course will use the LMS to create content items to present a variety of learning activities to enhance student learning.
