The theme of the current MOOC is collaborative learning and connecting online for instruction and learning. Moodle MOOC 3 will also include Moodle for Teachers (M4T) courses for beginners and advanced Moodlers.

Participants will be able to receive support and ask questions in advance and throughout the course in the course feed (discussion forum) in the course area on WizIQ.


Certificates of completion will be awarded to participants, who are active on the coursefeed (discussions), attend and/or view the recordings of 10 live sessions, reflect and write about the live sessions and share the link of their activities (blog, wiki, Moodle, facebook and other social networks). This aspect of the MOOC is ongoing, but time-based.
