This is my fifth paper towards the Grad Cert in eLearning, so the end is in sight! It's great to see some familiar names again - Elaine and Joy have studied alongside me during 2008 and have been a great support.
I am the eLearning Advisor and Developer for the Faculty of Humanities & Business at UCOL in Palmerston North. Currently I work alongside the New Zealand Diploma in Business and NZIM Certificate in Management teaching and administration staff (at Wanganui and PN campuses) to support them in developing fully online and blended delivery of resources using Moodle. Moodle was introduced to UCOL a year ago. Staff are also using Blackboard, currently being phased out.
I am also a Senior Lecturer with the School of Business and a certified Buzan Licensed Instructor in Mind Maps. When I itch to return to the F2F classroom I facilitate TLC (Think, Learn & Create) workshops for UCOL staff:
- TLC using Mind Maps,
- TLC for a Balanced Life,
- TLC for Notemaking & Notetaking and
- TLC for creative lesson planning.
I look forward to this paper to gain further knowledge and understanding in elearning evaluation.
I wish to create a relevant, valid and reliable evaluation that can be used for our fully online Moodle programmes for NZDB and NZIM, something I have not been able to develop yet at UCOL.
