Are you a teacher?

In Moodle you can...

  • Drag your favourite teaching resources straight onto the page:
    • No complex uploading processes; just select your file, folder or other learning resource and place it exactly where you want in your course.
  • Search for and embed multimedia at the click of a button:
    • Moodle's easy to use text editor makes formatting your courses a pleasure,with customisable edit icons and built-in image, sound and video embedding.
  • Reward and motivate your students with badges:
  • Direct your students' learning path:
    • Let learners meander freely around your course or restrict their access dependent on criteria met, time or profile fields; it's your choice!

  • Provide opportunities for them to peer and self assess:
    • Workshops challenge your class to evaluate their own and others' submissions according to criteria decided by you.
