Moodle - what is it?

Unread postby wildfk » 18 Aug 2008, 09:04

Has anyone had any experience of using Moodle?

I'm not even clear what it is, but I have a large workforce who could do with a flexible EL training program.....will this fit the bill?

Moodle is a not-very-intuitive online learning system. There are much better ones out there which are far more intuitive, better produced and far more user-friendly.

Take a look at http://www.epignosis.com.gr/ which is very good and which I've used productively before.

Moodle is a free public domain learning management system. It's software that you put on your server and it allows you to pretty easily, put up courses with teachers and students and learning activities. You don't need to be a progammer to use it. But, if you want it to look slick and be integrated with other parts of your IT infrastructure, you will need a programmer.

I took one course that was delivered in moodle on blog writing (blogwritingcourse.com). My kids built their english writing skills inside another moodle-based course called Time4Writing.com.

I mention these implementations of Moodle since they both have free course demos so you can see what moodle is capable of.

Lots of universities use moodle both for online courses and for online support of traditional courses.

Friends;

Moodle is an open source e-learning platform, sometimes its referred to as a Course Management System or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

It has been adopted around the globe with over seven million users [in November 2006].

I've been using Moodle for blended courses for more than 5 years now and I must say it works!
As open source software, developers are always updating it. For example, some features, such as portfolios, appeared recently.
I recommend it; it's user-friendly and intuitive!

As part of your broadband subscription to CLEO [in UK] your school can benefit from its own Learning Platform, at no cost to the school. Over 700 schools across Cumbria and Lancashire are already using Moodle, the open source Learning Platform centrally hosted and maintained for schools by CLEO.

Moodle provides a range of functionality covering content creation and delivery, communication and collaboration and management, including tracking and assessment tools.
