3. About Moodle

Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is the Learning management system (LMS) that presents courses for @KOOL. Although many of the courses have been already created, a solid understanding of what tools are in the course and are available is required to update and personalize the material.

There are many resources on the Internet discussing the capabilities of Moodle. The Moodle Community (http://moodle.org/) is the main site for discussing all things moodle. There is a specific area with documents and help links specific for teachers teaching with Moodle (http://docs.moodle.org/en/Teacher_documentation).  Take a look and bookmark these sites for future use and reference.

The next few chapters in this Book Module provide you with a brief orientation and background on Moodle.  Use this module, the links provided above, and others that you can find online such as the mylearningspace channel on YouTube to help you improve your Moodle skills.
