AOSIS eLearning News – April 2022

AOSIS 26 April 2022

Multiple languages on your eLearning site

Providing a learning experience in a learner’s language provides them with quality training.

Though Moodle supports more than one language in its user interface and allows learners to select the language they want to navigate in, you will still need to create learning materials (e.g. PDFs, videos, and SCORMs) per language and thus create a different course for each language.

Help increase learner engagement and participation by contacting us for our content creation expertise.

How can I add groups to my Moodle courses?

As a Moodle Partner we love providing useful resources. This video shows you how to add groups to your Moodle courses. View it here.

  • Moodle best practice – A site health check
    Periodically health check your Moodle site to make it function optimally. This includes checking e.g. version, grade history and system logs, and course backups. As a Certified Moodle Partner of South Africa we can help.

CLEVERTOUCH CUSTOMER STORY 

The Centre for Renewable and Sustainable Energy Studies at Stellenbosch University created an off-grid media lab for Mugoidwa Secondary School, in Vhembe district, Limpopo Province, South Africa.

The solution consists of 2 x 12m upcycled containers joined seamlessly to create a unified learning environment. The aim of this off-grid media lab is to help bridge the gap between those who have access to knowledge and those that don’t, in a sustainable manner. The idea is to not be a financial or security burden on the school, but rather help save money through renewable energy and giving access to the realm of knowledge that they wouldn’t have otherwise not received. This will enable learners to make informed decisions about their future – knowledge is power.

The renewable and sustainable energy team at the Stellenbosch University explored many brands and they found that Clevertouch had the best cross-platform integration, ease of use, and well-thought-out UX (user experience) that they come across. As well as seamless integration with Chromebooks.
