During the period from Thursday, September 24 to Friday, September 25, 2020, starting at 10:00 am and ending at 3:00 pm, the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) with assistance from the eLearning Unit of the Office of Information Technology (OIT) held a two day Moodle online Management workshop for our UL Moodle classroom instructors. The objective of this workshop was to reach out to all UL Faculty members who are actively engaged in our first ever UL Moodle online eLearning experience with helpful hints, instructional suggestions and strategies for making their Moodle eLearning classroom experiences a more successful endeavor. The first day workshop was held on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at the Capital Hill campus and the second day workshop was held on Friday, September 25, 2020 at the Fendall campus.
We had a core group of UL Faculty members who are successfully conducting their Moodle eLearning classes share with our other Faculty members, in brief 10-minute presentations, an overview of their Moodle classes and how they have managed their students and the activities of their Moodle online classes throughout this semester. The faculty members who shared their Moodle experiences included: Dr. J. Kerkula Foeday, Liberia College, Mrs. Cynthia Jones, Nursing and Midwifery, Mr. J. Boima Kiazolu, Science College, Mr. Emmanuel N. Gontor, Straz-Sinje and Mr. Dennis Nimely, Teachers College.
Following these general assembly presentations, the faculty members reported to a computer lab session with our TLC/eLearning Unit facilitators for more instructor-specific Moodle guidance and problem-solving instructional suggestions. Members of this team included the eLearning Unit Director Mr. Q. Randalson Saye, TLC Contractor workers Mr. Prince Fully and Mr. Christian Weah.
