Abstract or Summary

The context/motivation for the topic: For an academic staff member new to teaching online, making a start at developing a module site using a learning management system (LMS) can be a major challenge. Many new teachers may also be confused when they examine the module sites of their colleagues, since the type and presentation of content and activities can vary greatly from site to site, e.g. some module sites contain only content, others include a variety of interactive activities. What, then, is the recipe for success? What will be shown or discussed: This brief presentation will discuss and critique the Moodle sites of five different modules across a range of disciplines at Wintec in terms of their visual appeal, amount of material/resources/activities, tone of text, ease of navigation, variety of resources, degree of interactivity, and student usage. What are the implications for future practice? A model of overall pedagogical considerations will then be presented as a checklist for teachers to use in order to develop a module site that maximizes online student engagement, interactivity, participation and enjoyment in the learning process.
