Course overview


Teaching with Moodle: An Introduction is a free course for anybody who wants to use the Moodle learning platform for teaching, whether it be in a school, a university, a company or just personal interest.

  • Structured, easy to understand content
  • Optional live sessions each week
  • Activity-based learning where participants create their own courses
  • Grading tools, creating activities such as quizzes, glossaries and assignments, handling deadlines and managing enrolments.
  • While there are deadlines for a peer assessment (workshop) activity, you can progress though much of the course at your own pace.
