Moodle is an online open-source course management system that allows teachers and students to view and post class information via the web. This allows teachers to supplement in-class instruction with out-of-class resources.

Among other things, Moodle can be:

  • A classroom information portal for students and parents
  • A utility assignment drop box, scheduler, and collaboration center for blended classrooms
  • A way to provide eLearning
  • A way to teach 21st century skills with 21st century tools
  • Used to give professional development
  • A way to prepare students for college courses and industrial training
  • A way to share courses with other districts, and provide students with courses that we don't have
  • A way for the "quiet" student to become more involved in discussions
