Participants will receive full training about all Moodle features. They will be familiar with all the technical needs that Moodle requires in order to be installed in a web server, and will be presented all the mainly and most common tools that offers in a teacher. Additionally, very experienced teachers, will present several Moodle teaching styles and strategies in order to give to participants use-case scenarios to use Moodle in their classrooms.
This is a "learning by doing" and "learning while doing" workshop. There are no real lectures; instead the instructions and tutorials are delivered in a step by step fashion, and participants will be invited to gradually explore the learning environment. Following the educational principles of social constructivism which lie at the basis of Moodle, participants will be actively involved and will develop – alone or in small groups – activities for direct use in their lessons, using the full set of applications offered by the Moodle CMS.
Participants will receive a memory stick with a copy of all activities created by the course participants, and the material that has been used during the training. Using a password that will be sent to all participants, and which is valid for a whole year, participants get access to the lesson plans that are going to be used during the course and to the course material.

How To Apply
1 Contact your own National Agency to obtain information on the grant application procedures and to check the deadline for submitting your application. National Agency contact details can be found here.
2 Send your grant application form to your National Agency following the defined application procedure.
3 Your National Agency will inform you if you have been awarded a grant, normally 7-10 weeks after the application deadline.
4 You should then immediately contact the training provider to formally register for the course or to confirm your pre-registration. If you have not been awarded a grant but made a pre-registration, it is your responsibility to cancel this.
5 From the moment your National Agency confirms that you have been awarded a grant, you have responsibilities towards the training provider. If you cancel your attendance at the event, you will be responsible for paying any cancellation fees which the training provider may claim. Only in very exceptional cases of force majeure (e.g. serious illness or death of the grant applicant or a family member) may your National Agency pay cancellation fees using grant money.
6 If the training organiser cancels the training at short notice, you may ask him/her for compensation if you have already incurred costs. Neither your National Agency nor the European Commission can be liable. However, in justified cases your National Agency may decide to cover these costs using the grant awarded. If your training event is cancelled, your National Agency may give you the opportunity to select another one (contact your Agency for further details).
7 At the end of the training event, the organisers must hold an evaluation session. Your opinion on the quality of the training is important; training which is considered to be of poor quality can be further investigated by the National Agency.
8 At the end of the training event, the organisers should distribute a course attendance certificate, which is proof of having carried out the training activity.
9 Within 30 calendar days after the end of the activity you must send the Final Report to your Agency. Approval of the Final Report is the basis for formal settlement of the awarded grant. The Final Report form is downloadable from your Agency's website.
