Abstract

Moodle is an open source eLearning software platform that was originally developed by Martin Dougiamas which enables teachers to create online courses supporting interactions between teachers and their students. In recent years, Moodle has drawn the attention of teachers in Hong Kong. This is because undergraduate degree courses provided by universities in Hong Kong have been changed from three-year degrees to more generalized four-year courses in academic year 2012-2013. Due to double cohort, big classes are formed in Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd); this has made it very difficult for Putonghua teachers to cater every student's needs in class and caused many other problems. In light of this, universities in Hong Kong are exploring the potentials of Moodle in enhancing teaching and learning. In this paper, with reference to Intermediate Putonghua course in HKIEd, we will deal with the following two problems: 1) How various activities and resources have been used in the Moodle; 2) How Moodle course can improve students' learning experience.
Moodle的是一個開放源代碼的電子學習軟件平台,由馬丁‧多基馬斯(馬丁Dougiamas) 開發,其原意是讓教師們建立一個教師和學生之間線上課程的支援互動。近年來,Moodle 引起了香港教育工作者的注意,因為在2012-2013學年,香港的大學所提供的本科學位課程從三年制改為了四年制。基於雙軌制學年,形成香港教育學院的語言課程出現大班教學,導致普通話教師難以在課堂上照顧每位學生的需要,也造成很多其他問題。有鑑於此,香港的大學正在研作者:Moodle的對於提高教學質量方面的潛力。本文將以香港教育學院的進階普通話課程為例,探討下列兩個問題:1)在Moodle的平台上,如何運用各種的活動和資源;2)的Moodle課程如何提升學生的學習經驗。 Copyright © 2014 台灣華語文教學學會.
