Posted by John Love, Last modified by John Love on 14 June 2018 01:02 PM

So, what is this "Moodle" program anyway, and what can I do with it?

Good questions! Everyone starts somewhere, and so we'll try to give you some background on what Moodle is and how and why you should use it at VCC.

Vancouver Community College’s LMS (Learning Management System) is called Moodle. The name "Moodle" is an acronym for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment. Moodle is free, open software managed by Moodle HQ.

(Read all about Moodle on their About page.)

But, what is this thing called Moodle?


Moodle at Vancouver Community College

At Vancouver Community College, Moodle is used for everything from simply storing course resources to delivering “mixed mode” or 100% online courses.

VCC's Moodle systems are maintained and supported by the eLearning Support team, in the Centre for Instructional Development. eLearning Support provides Moodle training and technical support for all VCC Faculty and Staff.

At VCC, Faculty assist their students with any issues encountered in their Moodle course, and eLearning Support assists Faculty with troubleshooting any issues. eLearning Support also provides training in Moodle content authoring and course administration. Basically, at VCC, Faculty helps Students in their online learning, and eLearning Support helps Faculty.
