Modular online courses that support modern pedagogy.
Moodle is a free, open-source learning management system developed by educators for educators. In this secure environment, faculty can upload documents, assignment instructions, links to websites and media.
Learning can be extended beyond the limits of a traditional classroom setting through chat sessions, discussions, collaboration spaces, quizzes, surveys and more. Moodle can be accessed by everyone at Adelphi via eCampus.
