Madly Moodling!

February 10, 2006 by Sue Weier

LSS is always trying to find innovative ways to make teaching with technology fun and effective. This semester, we’ve set up a Moodle site for several courses to use. Moodle is a course management system that provides a wide activity set along with great language support. Because

Moodle is open source software, new features are constantly being added and refined.

Moodle course tools include wikis, forums, quizzes, glossaries, and many other assignment types. Moodle also integrates Hot Potato quizzing, email, instant messaging and Skype. Students can easily log into Moodle with their UW NetID.

The feature set and the easy access make Moodle a viable alternative to Learn@UW.

Want to see the Moodle page in Japanese?

You can localize the interface – menus, toolbars, dropdowns, prompts – to a preferred language. Many languages are available!

If you’re interested in taking a look at Moodle, we can enroll you in our Moodle Workshop course. This course contains examples of some of the features built into Moodle, including several example assignments using wiki. You can also take a look at Moodle.org.
