Do you know what Moodle is? Do you know it can create rich interactions between teachers and students? Moodle is an open-source course management system where teachers can create engaging web-based courses through the development of activities and resources such as assignments, quizzes, glossaries and other lesson activities.
You don’t need to be a web programmer or have high-level computer skills to be able to create and interact with your students in a Moodle course. Moodle is an ideal learning management system that is safe, secure and easy to use so that your classroom can have an online presence.
After participating in this workshop teachers will be able to:
- Use the most common features of Moodle
- Create, edit and maintain a Moodle course for their classroom.
