What is Moodle used for?

Moodle is an online learning platform that enables:

> teachers to access and manage online spaces for tutoring a community of learners around personalised educational content and interactive learning activities, including: 

  • communication activities: discussion forums, surveys, questionnaires, etc.
  • collaborative activities (and creation of groups): wiki, building of glossaries, databases, etc.
  • assessment tools: submitting homework, creating tests (quizzes), etc.

> students to access dedicated spaces for their classes, with educational resources (class materials, videos, etc.) and tools for interacting with their group and their teacher.

Moodle can be used in connection with distance learning or enriched in-person learning. It is a vital tool for ensuring educational continuity, facilitating exchanges between teachers and their students.
