Monash University Malaysia (MUM) was founded in 1998. As Australia’s largest university expands globally, MUM stands as its third-largest campus worldwide. It proudly became Malaysia’s first foreign university campus, attracting around 8000 students and 1200 lecturers. MUM is a self-accrediting university and a prominent player in the education industry. It offers various schools, including Business, Engineering, and Information Technology. Like many educational institutions, Monash utilizes Moodle as its primary LMS platform, known as Monash Moodle.

Challenge: Enhancing Teaching and Learning with Moodle

Monash University Malaysia and Moodle

  • Monash University Malaysia has been leveraging Moodle as a powerful tool to support their teaching and learning endeavors.
  • Moodle enables increased student engagement by providing seamless access to content and materials.
  • Students can access course resources at their convenience, regardless of time or location, as long as they have an internet connection and an authorized account.

Empowering Staff and Academics

  • The primary aim of the training was to introduce Monash Moodle and empower staff and academics who are new to the platform.
  • The training aimed to build confidence and proficiency in utilizing Monash Moodle for learning and teaching.

Through these targeted training sessions, staff and academics were empowered to maximize their utilization of Monash Moodle, enhancing their teaching and learning capabilities.

Initially, all the sessions were set up as online training due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Three sessions were conducted online, and the first face-to-face training was on 14th June 2022. For me, it was great to run a face-to-face session after two years of online training sessions!

At the time of posting this, the training sessions for Monash Moodle is still ongoing. I’m really looking forward to the next training sessions – Introduction to Moodle Training and H5P Training.
