Teaching and Learning using Moodle
The guest lecture session is about training and placement activities for faculty and given tips for teaching. The resource person has addressed the various department students regarding “MOODLE”.
Some basic introduction on moodle given by resource person:
Moodle was designed to be used primarily as a tool for asynchronous learning, where learning takes place at different times. However, it also contains modules for the synchronous forms of learning. Moodle is used as the primary means for courses, as well as an additional tool to support traditional learning. With customizable management features, it is used to create private websites with online courses for educators and trainers to achieve learning goals. Moodle (an acronym for modular object-oriented dynamic learning environment) allows for extending and tailoring learning environments using community-sourced plugins. One of the reasons why Moodle is the world’s best LMS is because it is supported by a global community of developers. A large benefit of open source software is that the code is open for scrutiny.
