Council adopted Moodle as a corporate learning platform in 2006 and has
produced many local community sites around the world as well as a growing
number of global courses. In this workshop we explore some of the different
ways that the British Council uses Moodle for different audiences. We examine
some of the principles which guide the structure and organisation of our
different courses, paying particular attention to projects in the China region.
Of specific interest are those features of course design which research showed
to be most important in the development of a blueprint for online teacher
training courses in Hong Kong.
