Moodle MEC is a comprehensive online assessment and certification programme for teachers, instructors, and trainers who want to demonstrate their overall digital competencies within e-learning; leverage their Moodle experience to advance their skills further or collaborate with other motivated and innovative educators.
The programme covers 22 separate digital competencies, separated into Core, Teaching Approach, and Comprehensive Certifications.
The guiding philosophy behind MEC is to support and recognise users who are successfully applying Moodle to improve their teaching and learning practice.
The MEC is aimed at experienced educators who have at least a year or two of Moodle use under their belt. You should be comfortable with the key elements of the Moodle platform, such as Activities, Groups, Gradebook, Communication tools and Resource types.
So if you’ve been successfully using Moodle for some time now, but you’re looking to prove your knowledge and use of the platform, and demonstrate how you use it to support your teaching, MEC gives you a recognised, transferable certification.
For the initial launch, the Core Certification will include 6 modules, and will run over 6 months. We would recommend you allow 4-6 hours of exploring and working with the supporting content and activities in each module.
As Moodle MEC is run as an online course, you’ll be able to participate at whatever time is most convenient to you.
The cost per participant for Core Certification is £500.
You’ll have full access to all of the supporting materials, resources and activities you need to guide you through each module, delivered through Moodle. We’ll assist you by demonstrating some exemplar Moodle teaching approaches and guide you in collating and presenting your submissions for each module.
At the start of the course, and following each individual module you’ll also receive detailed personal feedback from Edd Clementson and Kris Hargreaves, our dedicated programme leaders for the MEC. And of course if you have any minor issues along the way, you can contact one of the Titus team for assistance.
Titus runs the Moodle Educator Certification Program at regular intervals throughout the year. To find out when the next cohort will be registered, get in touch.
