Step Up to Cloud-Based Moodle
Moodle is open source educational software – very popular among educators around the world as a tool for creating dynamic websites for their students. It is a Course Management System (CMS), but it’s also recognized as a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or Learning Management System (LMS).
Whether you’re delivering content – or building collaborative learning communities, the focus of the Moodle project has always been to give educators the best tools to manage and promote learning.
Moodle’s features allow it to – scale to very large deployment (hundreds of thousands of students), yet it can be used for a primary school or an education hobbyist. Many institutions use it to conduct fully online courses, while others use it as a blended approach to augment face-to-face courses.
Moodle’s activity modules – forums, databases and wikis help build rich collaborative learning communities. Similar to a standard SCORM package, Moodle can be used to deliver content to students, and assess learning using assignments or quizzes.
There are over 9000 registered Moodle sites – in the United States and over 49,000 globally. Moodle’s popularity is linked to 5 key principles:
- We are all potential teachers as well as learners
- We learn well by creating and expressing for others
- We learn a lot by watching others
- Understanding others transforms us
- We learn well when the learning environment is flexible and adaptable to suit our needs.
