I used the Moodle for the first time for the course: Computer Aided Illumination Design. As always the first experience was difficult and I did face problems with the program and with students’ resistance to the new technology. But after the first two weeks we started getting the advantages of e- Learning. Unlike the traditional teaching systems that stress content and course delivery, the Moodle focus on active learning, reflection, sharing, and collaboration. We found it useful for the participants to learn through meaningful connections and social interactions, e.g. wiki, websites, etc.
After that I taught two courses using Moodle and each time I noticed more students’ engagement in the process and more enthusiasm to use this new way of learning. Now I am teaching another two courses and I am trying to train more students to use this system
To summarize, Moodle helps enrich students in a variety of aspects of the educational experience by engaging and assessing materials while making their daily lives more convenient. Because of this integration, access, structure and student engagement improve while saving time for users by providing seamless entry to the course materials from directly within the Moodle environment. In short--it makes life better.
