Moodle

Moodle (elementary, middle, high)

Our district has 2 Moodle sites: a Student side as well as a Teacher side.

Moodle is an Open Source Course Management System (CMS), also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

The focus of the Moodle project is always on giving educators the best tools to manage and promote learning, but there are many ways to use Moodle:

  • Moodle has features that allow it to scale to very large deployments and hundreds of thousands of students, yet it can also be used for a primary school or an education hobbyist.
  • Many institutions use it as their platform to conduct fully online courses, while some use it simply to augment face-to-face courses (known as blended learning).
  • Many of our users love to use the activity modules (such as forums, databases and wikis) to build richly collaborative communities of learning around their subject matter (in the social constructionist tradition), while others prefer to use Moodle as a way to deliver content to students (such as standard SCORM packages) and assess learning using assignments or quizzes.

In our district there are many teachers who use Moodle to facilitate their classes and use it in a variety of ways for student use. In addition, our teachers attend classes on the staff side to learn and collaborate with their colleagues as well.

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed
    to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours take
    a massive amount work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do
    write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away
    your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
    could be giving us something enlightening to read?
