Moodle/WordPress training workshops – Language Schools 2011

Dear Language Schools Faculty,

As you know, the current summer is the final semester in which you will be able to add new content to Segue. (After the end of this summer, Segue will become “Read-only”.)  Middlebury is in the process of transitioning away from Segue to other courseware.  In preparation for this, LIS is offering a series of training workshops for Language School faculty.  Moodle and WordPress will be covered in the sessions.  We will discuss background and theory (when to use what, how to transfer content, etc.), as well as offer hands-on training.

Several workshops will be offered in the Davis Family Library 105.

Week of July 4
Week of July 11
Week of July 25

Please use the signup sheet linked below. Exact times are listed on the signup sheet. There are 19 computers in the lab.

Segue from Segue: Open Sessions

The Curricular Technology team has scheduled a number of open sessions on the Segue from Segue project in Library 145.  Here are the dates and times:

  • 10:00 – 10:30, Monday August 2nd
  • 1:00 – 1:30, Tuesday, August 3th
  • 4:00 – 4:30, Wednesday, August 4th

These sessions are an opportunity for you to tell us about the kinds of technologies for teaching, learning and research you think Middlebury should invest in.  We particularly encourage Language School faculty to stop by and give us feedback about your use of technology for teaching languages.

We will also discuss some of the ideas we have for alternatives to Segue including Moodle, Drupal, WordPress, Google Sites and MediaWiki.
