The purpose of this capstone project was to develop a curriculum product in the form of professional development training that would prepare college faculty to use Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (MOODLE) course management software in their community college classes. This curriculum project provided faculty members with information on recent advancements in the use and teaching of technology to enhance student learning outcomes. The Moodle training provided the knowledge and skills for the faculty to begin using Moodle immediately in their classroom instruction. The curriculum materials developed include a PowerPoint presentation, a facilitator guide, and a participant guide. The facilitator guide provided the instructional content and directions on how to present and use the training instructional materials and hands-on practice activities to engage the participants. The peer facilitator and the training materials also included a summative evaluation form to revise and improve materials for future training workshops. The participants received a copy of the Moodle training instructional materials and directions for practice activities so they could view and use the materials as the peer facilitator conducted the training. The participant guide contained copies of the PowerPoint slides, notetaking sheets, and hands-on practice activities. Each of the four days of training included a four-hour morning session and a four-hour afternoon session. The curriculum developer used the ADDIE instructional system design model to create and implement the training curriculum. The ADDIE model is a systematic approach to design instruction that consists of five phases. The development of the curriculum and workshop was a first step to encourage and help faculty to use Moodle technology in an existing course they taught in their brick and mortar classrooms.
