Moodle - PHP - MYSQL - APACHE

Putting your course content into pdf files with instruction to read this or do that and then post a reflection in a forum is ok, at best.  That is old school.  That is like using your smart phone to only call someone.  Or like driving your Mustang to church, only.   This is not a very engaging format.  Its ok, it does create a little learning opportunity from other students.  Forum reflections or posts are ok, but they are passive.  You can read them, comment back to them, sometimes.

Moodle can do so much more that that.

Moodle is full of activities that a lot of people do not understand or are not willing to step out of their comfort zone a little.  Perhaps the teachers are afraid of certain activities because they don't know them well and fear the students would know them better.  Understandable.  Still, you cant be afraid of the students.  You have to take a little change.  Step out there a little and try something new.

Moodle likes to toot the "co-constructionist" horn.  Big word, simple meaning.  The students learn from each other in addition to the teacher.    Students too often think of themselves as little silos.  Alone, off in the corner.  By itself.  Students are like little silos.  Instead, think of a single large Silo, with all the little silos inside of it, looking, talking and working together.  That can be intimidating, I'm sure.  You have to trust the students and empower them with things they can do in the course, together.
