Learn online on NCampus.
NCampus offers interactive, online continuing education, using learning management
software called Moodle, an open-source product
originally from Australia, now used world-wide.
The learning management software not only keeps track of participant progress,
it encourages social learning by offering personal profiles so participants can
get to know one another. The
software presents written materials to the students, and can link to audio and
video files as well. It facilitates
class discussion through forums and blogs, and also handles traditional written
assignments and quizzes. Instruction
is asynchronous—that is, lessons are designed so that students can interact with
instructors, other students, and materials, but need not be in direct contact at
the same time.
Through this software, the Nebraska Library
Commission can offer librarians who have difficulty travelling and finding time
to attend classes quality structured continuing education via the Web.
