Why is Moodle the Best LMS? - EdTechReview™ (ETR)

Why is Moodle the Best LMS? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Moodle Best LMS | Scoop.it

Moodle (acronym for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is an open source Learning Management System (LMS ) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE ). It is rising in popularity among the educators around the world, as a tool for creating dynamic websites for students. It is open source, since it is customizable, has no contracts or user costs to pay and is widely available for free use. It can be efficiently integrated with your management system and allows you to support personalized learning, which is effective even outside the classroom and encourages the involvement of the broader community of the institution.


Moodle has constantly maintained its top spot among the LMS tools and has been ranked 11th overall among the top 100 tools for learning in 2013 . Many factors have contributed to Moodle being highly successful. On top of being a great LMS, it is also free to use. Teachers can teach their own online courses using this and find it stable and easy to use and being customizable, it fits to its user’s needs with ease.

 

 Moodle has several advantages over other LMSs, here’s the list of a few:


- It is an open source learning platform, which is utilized by millions of people worldwide. This open source nature allows anybody to tinker with its code or add new things. Users can share changes with the Moodle community for others to use for free. All this leads to the extension and reformation of the software.

- It makes use of simple technologies, as a result of which its developers are easy to find.

- It is built on some of the most reliable technologies, such as PHP, MySQL, Apache.

- It has a fully cooperative development model which offers constant scope for improvement by allowing many high quality contributions to acquire new modules, features and enhancements.

- It makes use of the more advanced programming approach, the object-oriented programming which makes its functionality all the more efficient and allows users to proceed at their own pace, as well as customize it according to their needs.

- It focuses on making the learning and teaching experience constructivist. This process encourages the involvement of learners in the learning process, rather than letting them receive knowledge passively. The learning environment becomes more democratic with interactive and student-centered activities.

- It is convenient for educational institutions and organizations for learning and course management.

- It can be quickly deployed in your organization, without the requirement of any extra efforts.

- It is highly cost-effective, since it has a low risk startup and a low initial investment.

- It provides you with fast and reliable updates of information.

- It provides you with regular support, all the time you use it. Its support feature is active twenty four hours a day, seven days a week and addresses to its developers, members and users.

Publish your course as an LTI tool with Moodle 3.1

While Moodle users have been able to access LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) sites and materials, so far they have not been able to share their own educational content. This changes with Moodle 3.1. Users can now publish courses and activities as LTI tools. Anyone can share material on other Moodle sites (and platforms).

What does this mean?

This means you have the opportunity to share your course content with Moodlers around the globe, giving over 80 million Moodle users the opportunity to expand their education. You can also choose whether you want to publish selected activities or entire courses.

Other websites provide content and interactive learning exercises that differ from Moodle’s plugins and activities. Introducing external resources can complement the content in a Moodle site.

Incentivize Attention And Awareness In Moodle With The Stash Plugin

Incentivize Attention And Awareness In Moodle With The Stash Plugin | Moodle Best LMS | Scoop.it
The Stash plugin could be appropriately described as a way to play “hide and seek” inside Moodle. With Stash, you create code snippets for images that you can place anywhere in your course. The snippet includes an image and a collection button. When students find the item, they add the item to their “stash” by clicking. You can set a limited number of supplies for the item, to reward fast navigation. You can also set interval times to hide the item for a given amount of time after a student discovers it, to prevent overcrowding.

Give (And Get) Students Simple Reminders With The Reengagement Moodle Plugin

Give (And Get) Students Simple Reminders With The Reengagement Moodle Plugin | Moodle Best LMS | Scoop.it
How hard is it to keep a student’s attention? Do you sigh, does your body language engage students? It is unfortunate that online or blended learning is not free from the efforts of drawing people with the attention span of someone who really likes big balloons. This Moodle plugin might change your fortune.

The Reengagement plugin allows you to set a “soft deadline” to email only the students who have not completed an activity. The plugin can also be set up to email for new course content. The August update for 3.1.2 includes adjustments to restrictions and additional controls for email frequency.

This is a particularly useful plugin for courses with free enrollment. Students who face no short-term consequence of signing up for a course, never to log back in again, could just forget they sign on even if they paid. The reengagement plugin will help you plan your moves ahead, so you can think about the motivating messages to bring them back. A strategy incorporating Reengagement with other marketing tools is a sounder approach. (Just make sure you don’t overuse it to avoid getting the domain of your email address flagged as spam.)

Can Moodle Mobile Assignments Enhance Context-Relevant Learning?

Can Moodle Mobile Assignments Enhance Context-Relevant Learning? | Moodle Best LMS | Scoop.it
With the latest upgrade in Moodle Mobile, allowing homework submissions from phones or tablets, solutions to these problems get easier to deploy. Moodle Mobile 3.1.2, lets students and teachers work without the need of a desktop computer, a classroom or a common schedule.

The learning industry is only beginning to embrace the concept of “ubiquitous learning” to reach this untapped market. Many potential learners are mobile-first internet users, often without access to desktop computers.

Research from the developing world, as well as top research centers, recognize the impact of “m-learning”. One of the most telling illustrations is the impact mobile devices have shown on reducing youth employment. They complement workforce training and close the skills gap between young workers and the needs of the market, researchers argue.

Shorter assignments, to assess smaller, localized objectives, can help decrease the time span between theory and practice, and increase feedback. Mobile devices can also increase the availability of information in the appropriate physical context, which is a proven key in long-term retention. Teachers themselves can also access Moodle on the go, to review and grade student submissions.

For more on Moodle Mobile Assignments, visit the official documentation. A full list of the release information on Mobile 3.1.2 is available at https://docs.moodle.org

What To Keep In Mind When Designing Moodle For Mobile Phone Access

What To Keep In Mind When Designing Moodle For Mobile Phone Access | Moodle Best LMS | Scoop.it
Over 50% of all internet access worldwide is now via mobile devices. Users accessing your Moodle content on a small screen device seems inevitable. And not all will be using the Moodle Mobile app, so you should give some thought to how your course looks in browsers. Here are some tips on Moodle design for a better mobile and small screen user experience.

First, consider the parts of your course that are deliverable via mobile. Some activities or resources are better to do on a desktop. If you cannot replace them, leave them for that medium and focus on the others. Which activities are suitable to do on mobile? Could you even make the experience better than desktop?

Next, think about readability. Even if you use a responsive Moodle theme, large chunks of text can be a drag to scroll through. Avoid text in images because when they are shrunk for mobile it may be impossible to read. And break up content into small chunks. Use a custom agent manager or mobile emulator to verify how your Moodle will look on any mobile device. Most modern browsers offer this tool, already available or through an extension or add-in. Note that this can be helpful during development, but the acid test is to check a real smart phone.

Some formats lend themselves better to mobile than to desktop. Podcasts, eBooks and similar formats are perfect for mobile, so use them when possible. Some educators have designed activities which use the phone’s unique input methods. From the location and motion sensors to the camera, they are good ways to make more interactive experiences.

Navigation can be tricky on mobile. Buttons, links, and icons that work on desktop can get lost on small screens. So make sure each screen has clear pointers on it indicating the next section or next thing to do. Placing the content plan of the course at the beginning of each section can help orient the user. Repetition is key. Reiterate the learning objectives along the course.

Many users will be using the Moodle Mobile app. Familiarize yourself with its features and develop with the users of the app in mind. Make sure Moodle Mobile app access is enabled on your site so your students can access it.

Finally, be aware of file size. Large videos or images won’t work well in areas of patchy or slow internet. Keep everything streamlined for speed and accessibility.
