Online Faculty Development Programme        ( 23-06-2020 )

 Mar Athanasius College (Autonomous), Kothamangalam has organized a one week "Online Faculty Development Programme on E Content Management" in association with ICT Academy of Kerala. The programme received overwhelming response from the academic community, but due to practical considerations, the registration was closed with 72 participants. The programme was announced in a time, when the entire world was facing an unprecedented crisis in the form of Covid-19 pandemic. As an aftermath of the countrywide lockdown, the academic field was struggling to keep up with its schedule. The conventional classroom-oriented teaching-learning process had  come to a standstill. So it was necessary to  take  initiatives to rejuvenate the teaching-learning process. It was very evident that only an online approach using ICT shall work due to the social distancing needs. But at the same time, it was necessary to equip the teachers with working knowledge in the modern teaching-learning approaches for the proper dissemination of knowledge. We organized the programme envisaging to take  the first step in this direction by introducing MOODLE, a leading platform in the field of Learning Management System, through online teaching-learning approach.

The main objectives were to:

Design, Develop and Transact a MOOC course, in view of the changing demand for online learning.

Use MOODLE to transact the curriculum and for the effective management of student support

services in classroom.

Resource Management at MOODLE.

Scheduling various activities at MOODLE

Learn to deal with Google Classroom

The participants were able  to develop  a complete course on MOODLE platform by the end of the programme. Google classroom was also introduced as another easy alternative.
