TeachYourWay

Teach your way

Moodle LMS provides a pedagogical toolbox designed from a social constructionist point of view that allows you to build your own education platform to teach the way you want, to any age or number of learners.

Whether you want to facilitate collaborative learning through group activities like Wikis or Forums; encourage student to review each other's work in Workshops; develop learners ability to self reflect through Blogs, provide students the means to check their own progress through Checklist; provide tasks that allow for active participation, exploration and experimentation through Assignments or Quiz; or keep older learners up to date with course requirements or changes with Calendar, Notifications and Messaging, Moodle can support your online education style.

MeasureTrack

Measure and track progress

Moodle LMS includes a variety of ways to monitor and measure your students’ progress. Record and manage your students achievements through Moodle’s Gradebook that activities such as Assignment and Quiz send grades back to. Educators can create individualised or group learning plans based on Competencies and can use Moodle’s Learning analytics to receive insights to predict and support students at risk of failing. Assess formatively or summatively with custom grading scales and rubrics and use marking workflows to control grade release. Manage the sequence or timing of students completion of tasks with Activity completion, plus Moodle’s Restrict access feature enables you to restrict the availability of any activity, or section of a course, based on a student’s ability or level of achievement.

Reward

Reward effort and recognise achievement

Moodle LMS allows you to reward learner progress and encourage engagement. Badges, which are standard to Moodle, are a good way to break down learning goals and celebrate incremental achievements of learners. Course certificate, a Moodle plugin, allows for the dynamic generation of certificates based on a condition set by you, such as a student reaching defined goals. Moodle also has a vast library of gamification plugins to motivate and reward student accomplishment.

Access 1

Accessibility

Moodle LMS is WCAG 2.1 AA compliant which means that Moodle users can be reassured that Moodle meets accessibility in four key areas. Whether you are an educator, learner, developer or system administrator, Moodle LMS’s authoring and evaluation tools are endorsed by WCAG as perceivable, operable, understandable and compatible.

The way in which educators and administrators create courses, resources and activities on Moodle LMS also has an impact on their accessibility. To accommodate all learners, it is important that educators and administrators create Moodle courses with resources and activities that provide alternatives for different senses, options between language and symbols and promote active information processing skills.

Moodle’s Atto Editor contains built-in accessibility tools and a Moodle LMS Certified Integration, the Brickfield Accessibility Starter Toolkit includes the automated analysis of Moodle courses against a set of common accessibility rules, checking the content inside all of Moodle’s core activities.
