In this sharing session, experiences about designing Moodle activities in course-level will be introduced. Students learning in universities is usually arranged in courses which are a series of lessons. Moodle activities show the powerfulness to create meaningful learning experience in individual lessons, but it is also worth to see how could Moodle being utilized to complement the entire course.
