Show your expertise with a Moodle Educator Certificate (MEC).
The MEC is based on the European Framework for Digital Competences for Educators (DigCompEdu).
Moodle Education certification is designed to help educators build upon their existing Moodle skills and knowledge.
Yes. MEC is aimed at experienced Moodlers. Candidates are expected to have completed either basic training with a Moodle Partner or the Learn Moodle Basics MOOC, and have some teaching or training experience with Moodle. This is not a learn how to use Moodle course. Please contact us if you or your organisation needs Moodle training.
The MEC program has six courses covering twenty-two key competencies. The six courses include: Professional Engagement, Digital Resources, Teaching and Learning, Assessment, Empowering Learners and Facilitating Learners’ Digital Competence.
The six MEC courses, matching the six groups of competences are asynchronous, online and facilitated by our Moodle Certified Facilitator. In each course, there are quizzes to evaluate each competence, and two writing assignments that give candidates the opportunity to reflect on what they have learned and how Moodle can support their own teaching practice.
One course is delivered per week. There are six courses in the MEC program, so six weeks in total. Each course requires a time commitment of around six hours. Therefore, approximately 36 hours to complete all the activities in the program.
When an MEC course is successfully completed, the candidate receives a badge, and when all six badges are earned, the candidate achieves the Moodle Educator Certificate.
The MEC program fee is AUD 600 ex gst. This covers the online curriculum and facilitation for all six courses and six badges. Upon successful completion, the candidate is required to pay EUR 200 directly to Moodle HQ to be issued the Moodle Educator Certificate.
