Presentation abstract 発表内容
Moodle is used at our university to manage a required freshmen Oral English program that is almost entirely taught by part-time teachers. From April 2011, all students and part-time teachers in both the 4-year and 2-year departments at our campus campus were requested to enroll in the blended-learning Moodle courses created by this author and a student assistant. Grouped by department and day of the week, the Moodle courses consisted of two-levels, Upper and Regular, decided by placement test. Students were asked to do most of their preparation and homework online in the form of Moodle quizzes, counting for 20% of their grade for each semester course. For each unit, vocabulary, listening and grammar questions of various formats such as fill-in, multiple choice, and matching questions were assigned with deadlines. The presenter will report on student participation (over 500) and scores attained in 2011-2012, and what organizational changes were made in 2012. In particular, orienting numerous part-time teachers and students not familiar with Moodle proved to be a major hurdle. Some ideas and procedures for smooth introduction of Moodle courses will be discussed.
