Online Readiness: Are we prepared?

For those who have not studied online at distance before, it can feel overwhelming at first: providing an induction course is vital to ease the transition and support students to become effective online distance learners.  In this presentation we will look at the configuration and evaluation of an online induction course in Moodle used to support students transitioning to online distance learning.

We will take a look at effectiveness of online induction provision in providing students with an understanding of the technologies they will use during their online studies as well as facilitating early interactions between students, academics and learning technologists. Encompassed throughout will be our experiences and advice on what works and doesn’t work in running these types of courses in Moodle.

This presentation will likely be of relevance to those involved with teaching and learning as well as technologists and individuals working in training and support areas.
