Leveraging Technology-Enriched Method for Efficiently Designing Pedagogically Effective Moodle Courses

In today’s rapidly evolving educational landscape, designing Moodle courses that effectively engage learners and promote meaningful learning experiences requires careful attention to pedagogical principles and leveraging the potential of learning tools and features. By integrating various learning resources/services, such as multimedia resources, interactive assessments, as well as modern pedagogical strategies such as gamification, social constructivism, and personalized learning pathways in a meaningful way, course designers can create dynamic learning environments that promote engaging learning experiences.

This abstract presents a novel, evidence-based technology-enriched method for the design and enactment of Moodle courses that ensures pedagogical flexibility while optimizing efficiency.
Εfficiency is a crucial aspect of course design, considering the limited time, resources available to educatorsas well as their experience and expertise in technology-enhanced learning design. Course design methods supported by graphical tools (e.g. ABC LD) can play a transformative role in streamlining the design process by providing templates, process flows, and collaboration features. These tools enable educators and instructional designers to focus more on pedagogical aspects rather than spending excessive time on administrative tasks, ultimately resulting in time savings and improved course quality. Moreover, technology-enriched design methods offer opportunities for data-driven decision-making and ongoing course improvement. This iterative process enables continuous enhancement and optimization of pedagogical effectiveness.

This is why we have developed an research-backed and evidence based design method and tool called CADMOS which can greatly contribute to the purpose of designing pedagogically effective Moodle courses in an efficient manner. Here are some reasons why CADMOS can be beneficial, as proven via systematic research studies:

  • Design Guidance.
  • Attention-driven selection of learning resources/tools.
  • Pedagogical Flexibility.
  • Collaboration and Reusability.
  • Learning Analytics Integration.
  • Efficiency and Automation in bridging the gap between design and enactment of Moodle courses.
