Bleeding Edge UX: Pushing the limits of Moodle to Transform the Course Experience


Corporate learners are crying out for a compelling, differentiated online experience that promises increased learner engagement and delivers better learning outcomes for participants. For too long, learning and training teams have been shackled to enterprise learning systems and content that have ignored the fundamentals of what makes learning fun, engaging and effective.  

In this presentation you will hear about a project with the goal of changing the status-quo for an online experience. The Accelerator Course Experience (ACE) was developed by Apollo Education Group in partnership with IDEO, a leading international design and innovation firm. It was introduced to the market with the launch of Innovator’s Accelerator, a turnkey course on innovation developed with three of the world’s foremost experts on innovation. 

In this presentation, you will hear about the instructional framework, pedagogy and design principles that underpin the Accelerator Course Experience. You will be introduced to the several new features that were developed to encourage active learning, foster social and collaborative learning and help learners apply the learning in their work environment. Lastly, you will learn about how the team leveraged the power of Moodle themes, course formats and plugins to successfully enable this innovative new course experience.
