Leading adult education through support for and the effective application of technology.

Putting English to Work in Moodle (PETW)


This workshop is to allow teachers to explore and understand the Putting English to Work online courses available for ESL programs in Moodle, OTAN’s course management system for adult education agencies in California. The facilitator will explain how the courses are set up for ease of access for both learners AND teachers.

Participants will have time to explore the course activities and understand how activities are graded by the system as well as by the teacher. Participants will also explore the role of the instructor and review how teachers monitor student progress, review automatic grading, and complete manual grading (especially the short answer and essay questions). You will also review how to manage learners by adding/dropping them from the course roster. Additional discussions regarding how agencies recruit, orient, and retain learners in the course will help teachers decide how to integrate these courses into their curriculum.

Prerequisites: All participants must have basic computer skills and know their login information for a work or personal email address.
