New Rollout

We are about to embark on a new Moodle roll-out for staff in September 08 with three phase programme spread over as many years that will in the first year simply require everyone to utilise the system as repository for lessons plans schemes of work and handouts. One of the principle incentives for this will be 1 the running don and removal of the competing Intranet drive and the e-Maturity drive from Becta. While it has always been a contention from me that we must avoid at all costs the possibility of allowing the VLE to slip into the role of document dump, the reality remains that popularity and acceptance will only really emerge with use. For my own part I will see my current role as administrator and course creator being disseminated, so leaving me with the time and space to develop a training programme for content production and strategies more consistent with using Moodle as a VLE.
