Reasons for use

The moodle is an online learning environment and course management system that can be used for:
  • class calendars
  • distribution of course materials
  • easy access for links and other resources
  • electronic uploading of assignments
  • online discussion boards
  • online quizzes
  • online assignments
  • online databases
  • questionnaires/surveys
  • wikis
  • blogs
  • chat

Ease of use

  • For Teachers: Fairly high learning curve but once the user gets the basics, it all seems the same
  • For Students: Easy to access, find materials and upload work


If you are a Wissahickon teacher and you do not yet have a Moodle course, please email Dianne Krause so that she can set up a course for you. Then you can proceed with the tutorials...
