This Special Interest Group aims to support members from the Swiss E-Learning Community to implement MOOCs at their institution.
Videos are increasingly present in the higher education teaching landscape. But it is difficult, both for higher education teachers and e-learning centres, to know what questions need to be addressed even before starting to plan a video project. These questions essentially cover the aspect of "planning the plan", where a vision for the role of video in higher education, as well as the related constraints are to be identified, developed or at least taken into account. Furthermore, it is difficult for people starting to produce video sequences, to find information and help for every stage of their projects.
The Swiss Academic Moodle Community (SAMoo) was created in June 2010 to serve as a platform for Swiss Universities to exchange knowledge and best practices in didactic and technical fields related to Moodle. We will start new projects and coordinate activities together. SAMoo is organized as an informal community and aimed at e-learning support center leaders of Swiss Universities.
