Moodle: Connecting the World to Teach and Learn
It is an exciting time for educators and students all around the world. Moodle, “the world’s open source learning platform,” is bringing educators and students together from every corner of the world. As its mission states, Moodle is “empowering educators to improve our world.”
Moodle’s Beginnings Goes Back in Time to the Mind of a Child
From the mind of a child, a vision turned into greatness. In a desolate location of the Australian desert, one young boy learned from “materials delivered by aeroplanes.” Years later in “1999,” Martin Dougiamas, Moodle Founder & CEO, uses his childhood experience to begin “creating Moodle for his Ph.D. research.”
Just a few years later in “2002,” Moodle is released to the world as Moodle version 1.0. It only took months before the open-source, learning platform became known and used throughout the world. As popularity continues to grow, Moodle has become highly recognized and respected.
As of 2017, Moodle now has over “100 million registered users.” Only fifteen years after its inception, Moodle “announces investment partnership with Education for The Many.” With this partnership, this worldwide, education platform is propelling itself to achieve its “five key growth projects: improving Moodle core, Learn Moodle curriculum, MoodleNet, Moodle Foundation (and opening an office in Barcelona) and expanding their Services & Partnership program.”
Learning to Learn Using Moodle
Simply put, wherever you are, with a phone, iPad or computer, you can become the most educated person you would like to be. Everything you can imagine is at your fingertips with Moodle’s platform. Educators and students, from across the globe, have access to the world’s most-used Learning Management System (LMS).
Teachers Can Create and Teach with Ease
Through Moodle, teachers can create online classrooms. These classrooms have the tools to design lessons and projects. Whatever courses that they teach, they can share them around the world for anyone to participate and learn. Because Moodle works in “over 100 hundred languages,” teachers do not have to worry about translating their lessons.
Educators can easily communicate with their students through Moodle’s messaging feature. Forums can be set up for classroom collaboration with all the students. Teachers can share media news, give quizzes, and offer additional instruction and guidance.
Students: No Matter How Old, Everyone Has an Education Platform at Their Fingertips
Moodle is used all over the world, in every country, from Kindergarten to higher institutions. Moodle is not just for learning institutions, but it is also now used in organizational, training programs.
