Moddle

Attribution Some rights reserved by topgold
Moddle is a Virtual Learning Environment. its a tool for creating online dynamic web sites for students.  Many schools use it as their platform to conduct fully online courses, while some use it simply to boost face-to-face courses. Many of our users love to use the activity modules such as databases and wikis to build richly collaborative communities of learning around their subject matter, while others prefer to use Moodle as a way to deliver content to students and assess learning using assignments or quizzes. Students can use the software to look at PowerPoint presentations, hand in papers, participate in online discussions and receive feedback from the teacher. This is a good source of technology for high school age kids because it prepares them for college where you do a lot of online work. It also emphasizes student based learning where they can participate in online discussions and get more engaged with their assignments. It is also very nice for the teachers. They don’t have to take home a bunch of papers to grade anymore. Its all on the computer. Here is a helpful Moodle video!
