Reshaping E-learning Environments: Building Communities of Good Practice in Using Moodle


This project aims at exploring Moodle good practices and building communities of practice at the university. A community of practice related to Moodle use was built. One hundred and thirty two members coming from different faculties and different non-faculty units including teaching, technical and administrative staff and students joined this community. Twelve cases of Moodle use were studied and shared in this community. All cases including both contents and discussion were archived in an online platform for references. There were 3 international conferences papers related to the project published and presented. Also, one master thesis was completed with the findings in this project.
