A total of 247 faculty members attended the two separate sessions of the MOODLE training-workshop held in July and August via Zoom.
Nelio C. Altoveros, an associate professor at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Physics of the College of Arts and Sciences, served as the resource speaker. Assisting him were Beverly R. Pabro, university extension specialist, and Leonilo H. Torio, administrative assistant, both of ILC.
During the sessions, the participants were able to develop, edit, and improve their courses using the tools and features of MOODLE, which is housed in the ILC e-Learning Based Instruction (eLBI) site.
