LMS- Moodle

Tool: Moodle

Category: Learning Management System (LMS)

Description: LMS are Web based software that is used to deliver online education and training programs. LMS can be beneficial in many different sectors, including corporate training and development departments, higher education, and education. The system is used for the administration, documentation, and reporting of eLearning. Typical features include resources, web links, discussion boards, and assessment tools. Training and online courses can be designed for instructor-led or self-paced study. Users (students or employees) securely log into the LMS to retrieve resources such as documents and videos. They can then be assessed based on quizzes and tests; the tool also allow for the submission of written work.  Communication tools include discussion forums, email, and messages (instant messaging).

Application/Example: I designed a Moodle course to train faculty members in using Moodle to instruct their own online courses. Faculty specializes in Management, Engineering, and the Sciences.

In my Moodle training course, I used examples of each of the Moodle features so that professors would see exactly what the features look like in the context of the online environment. I also created assignments, quizzes, and discussion forums so that the professors could experience these features from the viewpoint of the student and thus, be able to better design their own courses.
