Week 1: Activity 2 Introduction

My name is Muhammad Usman Farooq, I have been teaching BC high school science curriculum for over 10 years now. Although my expertise is in Chemistry and Biology, but my interest in technology-for-education drives me to explore more into e-learning. So I taught myself html, css, ajax and php programming about five years ago. So, since 2013, I also started teaching ICT 11 and ICT12 courses. Over the years, I have explored many web-based application to share resources with students effectively.

I learned about moodle, WordPress , weebly and wikispaces. I was discourged by most of these plateforms because they are either very demanding on server resources or are having too many irrelevant features. However, I have invested some time on moodle and now I love it. It has helped me improve my teaching and also have helped my students improve their learning experience. I use it to share resources with students and to do many online computerized assesments. Students enjoy computerized assessment because I allow them to attempt many times. I have linked it to my question bank and that shows different questions to students everytime. Moreover, students can do these assessment anytime they want. Students

  1. Hello Usman

  2. Hi Usman,

    Thank you for sharing.

  3. Hi Usman,

    It’s good to see you in the course. This one might cover some of the territory you’ve already explored in your own web developments. Are you running Moodle on your server at your school? I’ve known it (or at least earlier versions) to run quite well on an old desktop converted to a server. When I worked at UVic there were a few faculties that ran their own Moodle out of someone’s office.

    Talk to you later,
