An Introduction to Moodle

By | 25th Feb 2016 | 2 min read

Moodle is one of the leading Learning Management Systems available in the world. It is used to deliver course content and host online learning activities. It helps the students and teachers by providing a collaborative learning environment. Moodle enables teachers and students to communicate and participate in a range of teaching and learning activities via ‘courses’. Teachers may also use Moodle to provide students access to course-related resources.

The Moodle learning platform is based on strong pedagogical principles, providing a private learning space for you to design online courses with flexible content and collaborative activities so that your students get constant feedback.

Moodle claims that it can be used for a small school as well as for a large university with out any load balancing issue. Robustness is one of the main features of Moodle.

Moodle in Zyxware

We are planning to introduce Moodle as a training platform for new joiners across the organisation. It helps us to keep all the training resources in a single place in a structured manner. When a new employee joins Zyxware, he/ she will be provided with username and password for the LMS and will be enrolled in different courses as per the progress in the training.

Assessments will be done in each course as part of the training. Timely instructions and feedback will be given by the trainer through code review process.

Let's see some of the important features of Moodle

  • Easy and secure environment for instructors to post course content online.
  • Wide collection of traditional instructional tools, including discussion forums, online quizzes, drop boxes for assignments, live chats, and online grade books.
  • Student-centered collaborative tools include Wiki, Glossary, and Database activities.
  • A repository of self study courses and materials.
  • Built on reliable technologies – PHP and MySql.

We hope Moodle can helps us to make in-class training a wonderful experience by conducting training in a more structured and well-planned format. Also, if you need any further assistance, please feel free to get in touch with us.
