3. Moodle Educator Certification

MEC is the Moodle Educator Certification and it is based on the European Framework for Digital Competences for Educators (DigCompEdu). DigCompEdu articulates 22 competencies in six areas, as shown below and MEC has one course for each area: Professional Engagement, Digital Resources, Teaching and Learning, Assessment, Empowering Learners, and Facilitating Learners’ Digital Competence.

The six MEC courses, matching the six groups of competencies,  are online, asynchronous, and facilitated. In each course, there is a quiz to evaluate each competence and two writing assignments that allow candidates to reflect on what they have learned and how Moodle can support their teaching practice.
