What is Moodle?

Moodle is an open source course management system. Moodle stands for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment.  It is open source LMS. OK, enough of these web terminologies, in plain English. You can put your course material such as assignments, tests, quizzes, grade book online. Site material can be setup by week, or by topic. Moodle has unique ability to show what your students are seeing. Simply switch role from instructor to student to change permissions. Only instructor has ability, and students cannot switch roles. All course site tools and data are available on main page on small to medium course sites, meaning fewer clicks for users to click. Material can be divided into topics and then these separate topics can be presented to students. Instructors can turn off each block with one mouse click. It is these types of simplicity but very useful information rendering that make Moodle stands out with other LMS.
