Moodle - Software learning management system


The internet is full of resources, webpages, music, notes etc...Some students do get lost or take a lot of time to find the right tools for learning. Others are easily distracted. Parents feel uneasy that opening the internet for students might lead them to meet other persons who are not teaches and who might teach their kids other subjects, which might hurt their children in one way or another.

How can all three (teachers, students and parents) meet online to continue learning? In other words, can they  have the educational technology all in one, safe place?

All three would like a place on the internet where students could revise the lesson conducted in class and find alternative help too in order to understand the lesson better. One can submit papers/written exercises online. Parents can watch their own child's progress. Teachers can have a private chat both with parents and students at the same time. 

Today we are presenting Moodle, which is a free and open-source software learning management system written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License. Developed on pedagogical principles, Moodle is used for blended learning, distance education, flipped classroom and other e-learning projects in schools, universities, workplaces and other sectors.
