Announcing the Eumetcal Moodle online course

Did you know that you can organize your own courses using the tools Eumetcal puts at disposal of member states? One of these is Moodle, a tool that allows you to organize the content of your courses and assist students and instructors involved in it, especially in e-learning activities.


The Eumetcal Moodle online course will take place 8 -11 February 2010. The course will be the first offered by Eumetcal on this topic and will be run completely online.

The course is structured in the following way:

- two 1-hour online lessons per each day at 09 UTC and 13 UTC (exception Thurs 11 Feb: only 13 UTC)

- two offline assignments to be carried out between the two online sessions of 9 and 10 Feb, respectively, and a third one in the morning of 11 Feb prior to the last session of the course. Each assignment requires about two hours of work.

The course requires in total about 13 hours working time.
