Presenters | VWMOOC on Moodle | Live Sessions | VWMOOC21 in Second Life
The theme of the current MOOC is “Connecting in Virtual Worlds. Communities of Practice” There is a plethora of communities in virtual worlds promoting education and learning through connecting online via web technologies such as Second Life. The MOOC will focus on connecting online for collaborative learning and teaching around the world through virtual worlds like Second Life, Digiworldz, Kitely, Minecraft, or OpenSim. The live presentations will include the speakers’ reflective process on teaching and learning in fully online and blended learning formats.
VWMOOC21 is for educators, schools, and public and private businesses that wish to provide training in virtual worlds. Weekly badges and a final certificate of completion will be available for free.
There will be 2 learning platforms: Moodle for Teachers and VMMOOC Headquarters.
We also have an exhibition with different presentations where participants will be able to review the slides and get resources from each one of the presenters.
