Moodle is a software package for producing Internet-based courses and web sites and it is provided free as Open Source. It is particularly useful for educators.
For an example created by a Chartered Teacher see www.abernet.org.uk/rcremoodle. This site is used by S1-S4 students in Aberdeen city who are undertaking a course in Roman Catholic RE. Just click and have a look around.
A moodle enables students to undertake learning at a distance from the teacher both within a school (e.g. students in computer room whilst teacher is in classroom) and outwith a school (e.g. teacher in a base in one school whilst students are in school library in another school). The teacher can monitor the students’ work and remain in touch via electronic messaging. The moodle can also automatically mark students’ classwork and keep a record of all results.
Further useful information can be found at http://docs.moodle.org/en/Getting_started_for_teachers.
If you wish to practise using a moodle then please visit http://demo.moodle.net/.
