Certify your skills with the MEC program

Have you taught with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace™ ? Have you already completed a Moodle course on Moodle Academy or training with a Certified Partners and Service Provider? If so, then consider certifying your skills with the Moodle Educator Certification (MEC) program. The program has been significantly revised for 2024, with both content and assessment types being updated to take into account the impact of AI in education. Our Partner translators are now working on updating the content so candidates can continue to take the certification in languages other than English. Now is a great time to take the Are you ready for the MEC? Quiz and join us to become a more accomplished, effective, and quality-focused professional!

In this webinar, we will welcome Dr Alexandros Kofteros, Teacher, EU CodeWeek.Ambassador.

At this session, Alexandros will focus on using AI tools to create content to support primary school students (ages 11 - 12) in various subjects.
