About This Class

Multimedia is content that uses a combination of different content forms such as text, audio, images, animations, video and interactive content and is perfect for courses created in Moodle.

I will begin by looking at adding images, both to a course page and within content.  Learners will be shown how to create buttons using images, and a course banner to add colour and vibrancy to the course page.

Video is a key part of any eLearning course, and this will also be investigated extensively in the adding multimedia section.  Students will be shown how to add video via Moodle, as well as embedding videos from external websites such as YouTube into a Moodle course. 

Audio clips are up next, with an explanation of the Moodle audio player, and how it can be embedded within activities  and resources.

Adding labels will make up the final lesson, and I will discuss with learners the power of using labels, and how they can revolutionise your course.

I hope you are still enjoying the course now we are nearing its completion.  As always, I am available for any questions or comments.

I have worked in eLearning for over 8 years, and in IT and computing for over 15 years.

I began my career at the Workers Education Association, the largest provider of Adult education in the UK, as a support analyst before moving up to a Senior Support Analyst, involved in building networks and providing helpdesk support.  I then moved on to work as a Learning Technologies officer for Coventry University London Campus, and then a Virtual Learning Environment Manager during my 4 years at the Royal Veterinary College.

Presently, I am the Electronic Resources Manager at the Institute of Dentistry at Queen Mary University in London, England.

I have managed multiple eLearning projects throughout my wide and varied career, including a college wide migration from Blackboard to Moodle, creating new undergraduate online courses, managing Virtual Learning Environments, Creating e-learning content, Moodle training, learning design including MOOCs and SPOCs and pedagogical design of online courses.

I frequently identifies and assesses relevant learning technologies to extend and support teaching and learning, and plan and manage the integration of such technologies into the curriculum and into teaching practice. 

In my spare time, I enjoy watching Football - I am a Chelsea fan, entering online competitions, playing with my cat Daisy (she makes a guest appearance in my courses!) and going out to the pub with my friends.
