I love the possibilities for teaching in the 21st century. I love the technology we have available to us to engage our students and connect them with us and with each other online. I also love the fact that many programs are shared freely. Moodle is one of these.
I have used Moodle myself as a student and have found it really useful. Last year I did an online novel-writing course through the Queensland Writers Centre which used Moodle. Now I’m looking forward to using it with my students, both in my new job as a part-time TAFE teacher and, hopefully, in a future position as a teacher librarian.
I also didn’t realise until today that Moodle was created by an Australian. How great is that?
