Moodle, a Learning Content Management System, is an open-source project that you can install and use anywhere! With Moodle you can train or educate users online using a variety of methods. By virtually connecting to students you can inspire and excite them to learn. This introductory course will address Moodle from an administrative and teaching perspective. Moodle can be a very complex system, but by learning the basic elements, you can create online courses and enroll users so everyone can be a part of the virtual classroom. Take this VTC course and you will not only learn how to add courses and users to Moodle, but you will also learn how to enhance course topics with activities such as databases, wikis, and forums. To begin learning today, simply click on the movie links. The first 3 chapters of courses are available to play for FREE (first chapter only for QuickStart! and MasterClass! courses).
