Learning & Teaching Enhancement

Moodle

Moodle is the University’s chosen Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Through the provision of a range of built in tools and functions, the VLE supports and facilitates:

  • the delivery of content and activities to students
  • collaboration and communication
  • assessments, electronic submission of coursework and plagiarism detection
  • the management of online learning and teaching tasks

Used extensively across the University, Moodle is able to deliver anything from a wholly online course (pure e-learning) through to one that supports aspects of traditional, face-to-face interaction (blended learning).

Its greatest strengths include the ease with which it can support a more active approach to learning through the use of forums, wikis, quizzes etc. and the seamless way in which it links to other learning technologies (Panopto lecture capture, TurnItIn etc).
