This two-day workshop, limited to 14 participants, is intended for University Administrators, Systems Administrators (familiarity with Linux necessary), Departmental Secretaries and Faculty Administrators involved in distance-learning programmes. The workshop builds on introductory theoretical presentations whereby participants will be guided through the process of setting up, adding content, and managing Moodle sites for online learning, and participants will be able to present their sites for constructive analysis by the group.
