If you participated in the preview session, thank you for sharing your questions, thoughts, experiences, and feedback!  You'll be glad to know I've added a lot of content based on the preview session I think you'll find helpful (like information on blending and flipping courses and making engaging videos).  The course is also more open and flexible so you can access what you're most interested in right away, or step through the course sequentially over time.  I even outlined a couple of different approaches (approx. 15 or 45-minute sessions) that will help you pencil the course into your schedule over a period of about 2.5 weeks.  

There's no wrong way to take the course.  But please do "show up" for it though -- contributing to wikis, forums, etc. along the way.  We can all learn more when we learn together -- ENROLL TODAY!

Please note: This isn’t a ground-up basics of Moodle course -- you can get that from central IT. Instead, this is a course that focuses on how to motivate and engage your non-credit online learners. 

Happy Moodling!
