MOODEC: Moodle "moocization"

The burning question of the rights on data from MOOCs hosted on US platforms pushes European universities to distribute their MOOCs on local platforms they control by themselves. Moodle is the second largest provider with 23% market share. In spite of that, its relative complexity and lack of automatization in tasks required by MOOCs makes the platform not fully functional to host MOOCs without any adaptation. Therefore, the MOODEC project (performed by the e-learning center HES-SO Cyberlearn and the research institute ISnet) aims at transforming Moodle to make it powerful, offering collaborative functionalities, automatization and allows universities to manage their MOOC offers by themselves. MOODEC operates independently of Moodle. It offers new plugins, activities, reports, blocks and proposes a students' dashboard. Special attention has been paid to ergonomics and interface design.

This webinar will provide an introduction to MOODEC and its objectives followed by a demonstration of this ongoing project. MOODEC will be launched in the Moodle community in March 2016.

Universities can contact in order to test the platform during prototype phase.
