Moodle explained

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 just watched this great video which explains clearly what Moodle is and how it works. Thanks to Audrey Nay, TL at Sandy Beach Primary School at Coffs Harbour for pointing this video out to me.

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?


About robynstlreflections

I never expected to become a teacher. After graduating from Sydney Univeristy with a BA (Hons), I worked for a couple of years before "going bush". When I started working as a governess I discovered that I enjoyed teaching, so studied for a Grad Dip Ed. After teaching in public schools in the Northern Territory for two years then in Queensland for 10 more, I moved back to NSW with my family in 2009. Now it's time for a change in direction. I've always enjoyed introducing my students discover the joys of literature and I'm excited by the educational possibilities developing in the digital world. So in 2010 I've begun studying by Distance Education for a Masters in Education in Teacher Librarianship with Charles Sturt University.
