Moodle has widespread adoption in European higher education institutions as a virtual learning environment and has also been used to deploy MOOCs. This paper introduces Moodle in this context and provides a case study of a MOOC delivered through Moodle. During September 2013, the Teaching with Moodle MOOC run by Moodle HQ gave over nine thousand educators an introduction to Moodle. MOOCS have been increasing in popularity in recent years, but to Moodle's founder, Martin Dougiamas the concept is not new: "Moodle.org has always been our MOOC”. This paper covers the pedagogical model that the Teaching with Moodle MOOC is based on, describing activities used in the course, levels of participation, problems encountered and lessons learned. It is not a technical paper, but instead focuses on the MOOC from the facilitator and participant point of view.
