Presentation abstract 発表内容
In this presentation the audience will learn about how to use Moodle as a venue for international online exchanges. The presenter will describe how he has implemented a six-week online exchange between students in his second year university Communication course with fourth year university students in Ningbo, China. For many students study abroad programs are either beyond their financial means or not part of their course of study. Whilst it is impossible to create exact replicas of such exchanges online, Moodle does make it possible for students in different countries to meet and exchange ideas in an online environment. The presenter will explain how the needs of the two cohorts of students influenced the course structure. He will then go on to describe the activities that students participated in, and the modules that were used to enable these activities. The main modules used were: the Forum, Feedback and Wiki modules and a third-party plugin called the "Record Audio repository", which allows Moodle users to directly record audio into Moodle. He will conclude with a description of the technical and pedagogical problems that were experienced, and suggest some solutions. Finally, participants will be able to download a copy of the course.
