Have you heard of Moodle?

Posted on December 10, 2008 at 5:25pm 4 Comments

First posting to this list, so please be patient with me.

During this semester, I have had a look at TYPO3 and Moodle as different CMS.

These are being considered as private alternatives to using the standard Blackboard LMS.

May I ask for any comments or suggestions from others that may have already used Moodle and TYPO3 in their own schools /classrooms?

Regards, Bill Oldham

Yes, that is the same school. First, with a great deal of fanfare, the college chanaged to a university, bringing in a lot of graduate programs. Then the university dropped the David from the name.... although still see it listed by the old name occasionally. The K-12 schools still kept the David.

I will teach the course using Blackboard, to give instructions and offer links to sites. However, the students will be instructed to create their own accounts on all the sites that I have chosen, as I thought they'd be valuable in the K-12 environment.

So, how did you get from Nashville to Australia?

Hi Bill, I actually teach at Hawkesdale and have been there for many, many years, as I married a farmer. Normally, our school will run small classes, but next year I have to combine units 1-4 accounting but my info classes will run with about 12 in year 11 and 10 in year 12

Hi Bill, thank you for your kind words, but I have known you online for a long time through the ITA mailing list. It is rather amusing to meet you on a more personal basis through this great classroom isnt it. I love the web2.0 tools and they have brough amazing outcomes for my students who go to a small country school.

Hey Bill,

One recommend for your use of Moodle is to put a virtual classroom plug in like wiziq's, it could definately make your classroom more intreresting if you go synchronous.
