Is there anyone else who would be interested in learning more about the lesson module? We would be happy to arrange some training.

I'm really interested in the lesson as a teaching delivery tool blending lecture, video and other resources in a similar manner to the online courses we saw in Daphne's presentation, not sure I want students to have to go too far for their resources.

Is a lesson the nearest thing to what we saw in the exemplar course? It seems to offer a nice containment and small footprint for a topic on the front page of moodle.

We would be happy to organise a lesson on Lessons for you Steve, just give me a call.  And yes it can be used as an assessment tool with options for grading, conditional access on previous requirements or grade result conditions.

It looks as if a lesson module captures some of what we saw in the exemplars in Daphne's video. Any chance of some lesson lessons? :-)

I think it's a great way to introduce scaffolded work, could it be used for assessment?

The Lesson module in Moodle is can be used in a variety of ways, as a individual personalised learning opportunity, problem solving and decision making simulations, grading, feedback, self and peer reviews and a number of other ways to engage and motivate online learners.  Click here for a 2 minute video on the benefits of using a Moodle Lesson.

Great presentation and I'm well in agreement with the tenets of FREE online education, I wonder if this fits our business model? Could some of our courses be free?

As a distance educator I am very keen to find out what software the sample lectures we saw are using, or how we can create these sort of deliveries for the distance courses I teach.

I see what Jacqui has posted and I am interested, however what really impressed me was the seamless appearance of a lecture with the quizzes inherent. Is this possible in the moodle lesson module?

Using this would really enhance our programmes.

Excellent presentation by Daphne Koller, she explains the crossroads (lecture vs online) that education faces very well with the many examples in this video.  Many of her ideas and suggestions for effective online learning can be achieved with  Moodle 2, with modules such as conditional access for personalised learning, computer grading for timely feedback and interaction and many other moodle modules that will help all learners achieve.
