Why Moodle ?

 

The Los Angeles District decided to use moodle for training of its staff. They felt that moodle was a solid, open-source program, which only costs for hosting and so it would be the best way to provide an inexpensive but reliable training system. The LACCD decided to roll it out to all of the colleges and each college now has a moodle site.

 

The hosting service (where the actual computers are located that run our moodle classes) are in McLean Virginia and hosted by Remote-Learner.net - whose data center is a tier-one facility, located in a building that provides well above OC-48 (2.5 gigabits per second) fiber-optic connectivity from MCI and other worldwide backbone providers. Customers in most parts of the world will experience fast Internet connectivity. This ensures that moodle is never down so our students can work 24/7/365 on their online classes. If you do have any connectivity problems contact Prof. David Jordan - 818-415-2015 on his cell phone or abogado@pacbell.net regarding any problems you might have with moodle. He is the Distance Education Coordinator at Mission College, and also the faculty administrator of the moodle website.

 

 

What is Moodle ?

 

Moodle is a free software e-learning platform (also known as a Course Management System (CMS), or Learning Management Systems (LMS), or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)). It has a significant user base with 25,281 registered sites with 10,405,167 users in 1,023,914 courses (as of May 13, 2007) 1.

 

Moodle is designed to help educators create online courses with opportunities for rich interaction. Its open source license and modular design means that people can develop additional functionality. Development is undertaken by a globally diffused network of commercial and non-commercial users, spearheaded by the Moodle company based in Perth, Western Australia. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moodle

 

 

  • Origin of the name - The word Moodle is actually an acronym for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment, although originally the M stood for "Martin", named after Martin Dougiamas, the original developer.
