What is Moodle?

Moodle is a learning management system, a learning platform to support collaborative teaching and learning methods. You can interact with your students and colleagues in virtual classrooms on this platform, which can be tailored to suit your preferences and needs. Moodle can be used either to augment your classes, in the form of additional reading, for example, or even to conduct entire lectures throughout the semester by integrating all kinds of teaching/learning materials. The learning platform encourages active learning by the participants though self-reflection and working in groups. You can ask the Institute for Digital Teaching to line up courses to accompany your classes, or one-off projects (incl. staff-only), test courses, etc. Here’s a direct link to the learning platform
