Face to Face Interaction – B N Jagdale

I was present on 6 and 7 Oct for face to face interaction where I posted one question about

Week 4 Course Journal – B N Jagdale

In this week we learned about Learning Management Systems (LMS). Even though IITBombayX
is also an LMS, it is primarily catering to massive open online courses.
MOODLE is an open source learning system that is generally utilized in conveying courses on the

gatherings, tests, visits, glossary, peer appraisal assignments and numerous other. MOODLE can
be utilized from numerous points of view: by introducing it on your foundation's server which
enables you to investigate the full highlights with boundless number of understudies or utilizing a
MOODLE benefit facilitated in the cloud system. Moodle cloud and Genomio systems are
available free of cost for course launching. We used Mount Orange School moodle demo for
learning purpose.
Screen-casting is another type of learning dialog method with learners. it is basically the recording
of Computer screens and transforming it into a film so you can share it. All the more essentially,
it enables normal individuals to make drawing in recordings that impart, prepare and offer. The
following are steps to make an awesome screen-casting.
