This course is designed for those who will be running the Digital Citizenship program for their group. It explains relevant aspects of the Moodle elearning platform, including how to navigate the site and how to register participants.
A detailed overview of the instructional design of each course is given and how the role of the eModerator changes during each of the 5 stages* of the program;
- Access and motivation stage
- Socialisation stage
- Information exchange stage
- Knowledge construction stage

eModeration requires a new set of skills to enhance the learning of the online participants. It is a delicate balance between guidance and overreach and this balance changes as the program progresses.
Completing this course before the commencement of the Digital Citizenship program will enable group leaders to run the program effectively and (time) efficiently.
