The following 6 posts on this blog are slides which accompanied a presentation I gave at Moodle Moot UK 2011 at Senate House. The slides are a little cluttered but this helped condense all into 20 minutes. Please click the slides to see larger versions.
At the end of last year I explored ways Stanmore College might enhance & personalise Moodle for students & staff. I presented some of these at ULCC’s Moodle Wonderland event. What follows is is a much broader analysis of elearning services and how they could improve to serve the wider community:
The following slide indicates where I think some gaps in elearning services exist for both un-enrolled local citizens (lifelong learners) & enrolled students:
As an example of where a gap might exist in learning services, imagine a place in the UK where for many miles there is only one school or college & the local bookshop (etc.) has closed. If you are not enrolled in this school or college & want to learn something, but don’t have the money for internet access – so can’t look something up on the internet or buy a book online – and you can’t find a person to learn from, where do you go? This is an example of a learner gap in the community, that the UK is wealth enough to bridge.
