Moodle Educator Certification (MEC) What is it and how do I get started?

We are delighted to announce the arrival of the Moodle Educator Certification (MEC) program. The MEC is designed for teachers, instructors and trainers who are looking to develop their digital competencies and to advance their Moodle skills. The MEC Program equips attendees with the skills necessary to fully utilise the scale power and flexibility of the Moodle platform. 

MEC Course Information 

  • All MEC content and assessments are carried out online – you can complete the MEC from wherever you are in the world as long as you have a computer and an internet connection – simple!
  • The course is asynchronous – there is no requirement to be online at a set time – fully flexible to fit your schedule.
  • You have a MEC facilitator + assessor assigned to you at the start – consistent support.
  • Each MEC assignment (one each week for 6 weeks) will take approximately 5 hours each week for you to complete. You must keep up-to-date week by week to be successful.
