Adult Ed Courses!
One of the services that OTAN provides to the California adult education field is hosting and providing support for our Moodle learning management system (LMS) site. We use our Moodle site, which is adultedcourses.org, to list California Adult Education Courses for use by teachers and learners at WIOA-funded agencies in the state. OTAN has both developed and procured a number of online courses which can be administered and adapted to meet the needs of learners. An educator can also request an empty course shell to build their own online course.
The first step is to create an account at the website. (When you are ready to offer the online course to your students, they will also need to create accounts to enroll and participate in the course.) Once you have your account set up, we recommend reviewing the following categories on the website to get started:
- OTAN Developed Courses - These are courses developed by OTAN Subject Matter Experts.
- Other Shared Courses - These are courses from other adult education agencies that OTAN believes are beneficial to California adult education teachers.
- EL Civics Courses - These are courses specific to ESL EL Civics.
In these categories, you are viewing samples of the courses. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the course for your account, then complete the form in the sample course to request a copy. (If you don't work at a WIOA-funded agency, you can still view the sample course for ideas and resources for your own online course.) If you would like more information about our Moodle site, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 916-228-2580.
