Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is a Learning Management System (LMS) designed to create dynamic online access to course materials and to promote student learning. The Moodle environment is maintained by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
Why would you use Moodle?
- Moodle serves as an online option for faculty to organize and distribute course materials, such as syllabi, assignments, project or lecture notes, videos, calendar of events, PowerPoint presentations, or links to other material. Many faculty at Centre use Moodle for online discussion forums, quizzes, and other collaborative learning assignments such as blogs and wikis. The integrated Moodle gradebook is a popular feature many faculty use, so that both faculty member and student can track grades throughout the semester.
How do Moodle sites get created for Centre courses?
- Moodle sites are automatically created for all Centre courses each semester, and all students registered for a particular course are automatically added to that course along with the instructor(s). Other courses, such as Metacourses for multiple sections of courses, Group Working Sites, and Test Sites are created manually by the CTL.
What other groups use Moodle sites at Centre?
- Many campus committees, organizations, academic and staff offices, and other groups create Moodle sites to organize and distribute documents and links to those in the “course”. Some examples of these sites are Brown Fellows, Bonner Scholars, Faculty Development Committee, Advising, and many more.
