Moodle Programs

Teaching Students with Special Needs & Disabilities
This resource unit will help principals, teachers and parents to better understand and teach students with special needs and disabilities. It can be used as a reference, as a professional development resource in schools, at teachers-parents’ meetings or to raise awareness among students in the classroom.

Areas covered include attention deficit syndrome, sight speech and hearing impairment, cerebral palsy Downs Syndrome, Delayed Cognitive Development, albinism, dwarfism and autism and many more. Materials include explanations, insights into living with these conditions and strategies to help teaching individuals with a disability or special learning needs in the classroom. I have chosen the best resources from You Tube and internet websites to make the resource units interesting and informative.

Employability Skills A & B:
This program will give senior secondary students and school leavers some of the useful skills to find employment and to perform well in the job. The program content includes videos, readings and worksheets in twenty five (25) topics over two ten week period but can also be done self-paced and open-ended.

The course is divided into FOUR Streams:
1) Self-Management Skills
2) Getting Along with Others
3) Formal English Language and Writing
4) Applying for and Getting a Job

At the end of the course, there is a Participation Certificate for those who have completed all assessments to Mastery level. Assessments are mostly in the form of a reflective journal on each topic.

The program is suitable for school-leavers, youth groups, community education or added as an extra-curriculum offering for senior students.
IELTS Preparation
IELTS Preparation A is a comprehensive sixteen week program suitable for students preparing to take the IELTS exam for further study or immigration to Australia and New Zealand. It is also suitable for university students, secondary Year 12 & 13 students, teachers and other professionals who already have an intermediate level of English wanting to further improve their English.

This longer version, IELTS Preparation A, has over 80 units and over 800 video and text resources. The course is divided into five streams, one lesson of each offered every week. These are:
1) IELTS communication skills practice (Reading, Listening and Speaking);
2) Writing workshop including essays, formal letters and graph descriptions.
3) a thorough revision of English grammar;
4) vocabulary extension in the most common themes;
5) a mini-program in study and test-taking skills.

Participants are invited from Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Fiji and beyond. This is a useful site for both IELTS Test Preparation and as an English skills booster for senior school students.

The shorter version, IELTS Preparation B, is an intensive crash-course with the most essential units for a faster preparation program.
TOEFL Exam Preparation
Unfortunately, the much-demanded IELTS test is available only once a year in Vanuatu and is not available as an online computer-based test. TOEFL, on the other hand, is acceptable by most Australian and New Zealand universities and tertiary institutions and is available as an online computer-based test with only two weeks registration time.

The TOEFL program gives you familiarity and ample practice in the four skill areas tested: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. .It also gives you training in essential skill areas such as Vocabulary Learning, Essay Writing, Summary and Notetaking skills as well as some essential grammar to cover common mistakes often made by students,
