The first official Moodle MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for teachers starts on September 1st 2013. Offered by Moodle.org it is free and will run for four weeks. Teaching with Moodle: An introduction is designed for anybody who wants to use the Moodle learning platform for teaching, whether it be in a school, a university, a company or just personal interest!
Registration opened on August 19th 2013 – sign up here: http://learn.moodle.net/
“You could say that Moodle.org has always been our MOOC,” writes Martin Dougiamas, “however, a lot of people are unaware of the potential of Moodle and have told us they would appreciate a shorter and more synchronised introduction where they still get to try everything out. So that is one of the main reasons we are running “Learn Moodle” as a more structured MOOC – to show teachers what Moodle is and the depth that it has, and to help them understand how our activities feel from a student perspective, in a way that they can apply in their own Moodle courses (whether in the free practice sandboxes we provide here or on their own sites).”
