MEC consists of 6 modules, with a quiz and two assignments in each.
The 6 modules are:
Teaching and Learning
Facilitating Learners’ Digital Competence
All content and assessment is 100% online - you can complete the MEC from wherever you are in the world as long as you have a computer and internet connection.
The course is asynchronous - there is no requirement to be online at a set time.
You have an MEC facilitator+assessor assigned to you at the start.
MEC is not suitable for those who are new to Moodle. You should be an experienced teacher, and have used Moodle for AT LEAST a year or two, and be familiar with the main elements such as all the Activities, using Groups, Gradebook, Communication tools, Resource types.
Each MEC assignment (one per 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.
Our process is for you to take MoodleBites for Teachers before you compete your MEC. This will ensure you have all the gaps in your knowledge addressed before you complete each MEC assessment. This will take 2-3 hours each week, depending on your previous knowledge and experience. (Existing MCCC holders can complete the MEC without taking MoodleBites for Teachers first). During the final two weeks of MoodleBites for Teachers, your assigned MEC facilitator will contact you to prepare you to start MEC.
Total MEC fee is US$300 to cover all 6 MEC modules which is paid before the start date. MoodleBites for Teachers pre-requisite course is provided free. If you fail any module you can re-take it for US$50.
The final MEC Certificate is issued directly by Moodle HQ. This is issued once you have completed all 6 modules. The final certificate fee is Euro200, and is paid directly to Moodle HQ.
