Moodle is an acronym for "Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment." It is an online educational platform that provides custom learning environments for students. Faculty can use Moodle to create lessons, manage courses, and interact with students. Students can use Moodle to review the class calendar, submit assignments, take quizzes, and interact with their classmates.
Moodle is used by thousands of educational institutions around the world to provide an organized and central interface for e-learning. Faculty can create and manage virtual classrooms, in which students can access videos, documents, and tests. Course chat allows students to communicate with the teacher and other students in a secure environment.
Each Moodle course can be customized. For example, one teacher may choose to provide a wiki that students can edit, while another may opt to use a private web forum for online discussions. Some faculty may use Moodle to simply provide documents to students, while others may use it as the primary interface for quizzes and tests.
