dc.description In an effort to promote the creation and sharing of educational content available as Open Educational Resources (OER), the course development team at the University of Hawai’i and the University of Arizona converted the original two Moroccan Arabic courses designed for the Flagship Program into two OER textbooks: Beginning Moroccan Arabic and Culture and Advanced Moroccan Arabic and Culture. These two OER courses are offered as exported Moodle courses, primarily designed for installation in a Moodle course system. The Moroccan Arabic and Culture OER Multimedia Textbooks aim to provide both beginning and advanced learners of Moroccan Arabic with curated authentic and interactive multimedia resources in Moroccan Darija, and contextualized learning experiences for developing region-specific communicative skills and cultural awareness. The downloadable file can be imported into a Moodle course system, or other Learning Management Systems (LMS). en_US
dc.description.abstract Advanced Moroccan Arabic and Culture contains seven modules and two Lessons under each module. Each Module starts with an overview that provides a brief summary of the learning objectives in that particular module. Each of the lessons focuses on a subtopic related to the module theme. Each lesson contains two types of activities: vocabulary learning through Quizlet digital flashcards and listening comprehension activities based on authentic videos using H5P. Once installed, course instructors can further customize the course content by adding assessments or other activities. See below for an overview of the Modules, Lessons and their corresponding themes in each course.
