Moodle Learning Management System

Moodle is the open-source learning management system that is becoming popular in many schools in North West Ohio.

There are two current versions of the Moodle system.

Moodle 1.9.x is the old version which most installations still have as their installed base.

Moodle 2.0 is a completely re-written version that has many added features. We are evaluating this new version and will probably look to updating our own Moodle server this summer.

NWOCA is offering some courses online as part of our regular training. We use Moodle to host these classes. You can find out more about the courses we offer by visiting our training web site. <http://training.nwoca.org>

Here are some resources that you might find useful as you learn more about moodle.

Dont forget to check NWOCA's training page for a training session on Moodle.
