Moodle is an incredibly versatile virtual learning environment and is widely used in secondary and further education. Moodle is also a popular virtual learning environment in primary schools, with children as young as four or five years old using it. Naturally Moodle is going to be used differently with younger pupils or those with poor literacy skills.
Courses will need to be visual and interactive so that it engages your pupils and encourages them to learn outside of the classroom. Rather than having a lot of text you should try to use audio or video for instructions. Photographs taken in the classroom are a great visual aid and can be used to lead a discussion at home as to what the pupil did in school today. This can help a pupil practice their speaking and listening skills and improve their ability to recall an event. There is a great feature of Moodle called a ‘Label’, which will help you to create an accessible and interactive course for your pupils.
