Moodle: The free learning platform

,----[ Quote ]
| E-learning comes in many forms. For example
| math and vocabulary aids on CD-ROM or
| screencasts on YouTube are just two obvious
| examples from a large range of different
| options. Less familiar, since they
| frequently deal with specialised knowledge,
| are thousands of specific learning systems
| and managed online courses. Programs such
| as Blackboard, Sakai, the German Ilias,
| Dokeos or Moodle are used to create
| training platforms for personnel and to
| provide computer courses for schools and
| universities.
| [...]
| With over 40,000 registered installations
| in more than 200 countries and an estimated
| 30 million users, Moodle is currently the
| most frequently used LMS. Many schools, and
| universities, such as the prestigious
| Humboldt University in Berlin, use Moodle.
| Another typical application is for staff
| training in medium and large companies and
| commercial providers of online courses
| often rely on Moodle. Almost half of the
| Moodle installation are used by groups with
| more than 500 members, for example the Open
| University with more than 600,000 students
| is one of the largest users.


Can you Moodle me now?

,----[ Quote ]
| In its 10 year history, Moodle has been confined
| to computer screens around the world; with
| countless fields, description areas and
| scrolling filling the screen.  There have been
| attempts at mobilizing Moodle in the past, but
| as a user you either didn't have the time to use
| it or it simply wasn't worth using.  With the
| proliferation and widespread availability of
| web-capable phones, however, mobile customers
| worldwide now have in hand a versatile portal
| into the web and to Moodle.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
