In week 4, participants will work in teams to begin designing a collaborative course. They will need to set up a syllabus
and Team Policy, create an overview of the course in the first section and assign sections to each of the members.
Each member of the course will add activities and resources that align with the syllabus and objectives of the course to their individual sections. They will document the process using screencast-o-matic or vimeo and publish the recordings individually on Youtube or Vimeo in week 5. The Youtube videos will then be added to the discussion forum and a Padlet wall for public viewing.
Remember that you're here to explore the platform, work with your peers, support one another, and develop your Moodle skills. You may find Carol Dweck's work on the importance of the process as opposed to the need to reach a point in time of interest.
Learning to Moodle is an ongoing process that never ends. There's always more to learn because the platform develops, changes, and improves and so do we. Keep that in mind as you work on your collaborative course.

How to Get Started with your Course
Use this group forum to design and decide who's going to do what section and on what in your collaborative course. Please upload the word doc on teamwork policy to Google drive and share it with the other team members.
You will only see the members of your group.
Copy the Google drive doc of the teamwork policy and change the title.
The aim of using Google docs is for all the members of the group to add their input. It's all about team collaboration. Please add me to the doc with editing rights. My gmail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Each participant is required to share their final teamwork policy document. Please submit your teamwork policy by pasting the link of the team Google doc and hyperlinking the link.
One person should copy the Google doc and give editing rights to the team members by adding their gmails to the "share" feature on the top right of the doc.
This is a team discussion. Only team members will view and be able to start a new discussion or reply. You are required to be a member of a team to view the activity.
Create a syllabus for your collaborate course on Google drive, share the doc as "view" publicly, and share the link in this forum. Pleases hyperlink the link, so we just need to click on it to get there. You will be graded for the activity.
