 Registerd User or Guest User? Site Functionality &  MOODLE. 
  • This whole site, functionality and code is open source, freely developed and distributed by MOODLE.ORG as a virtual learning environment for the global education sector. Anyone can download, use and create a MOODLE based VLE.  This is not a regular web site.  It is built by MOODLE.ORG specifically to support students and education establishments to learn online. For example teachers can create online courses and students can enter their answers and get marked and graded by the teacher. We use a tiny tiny fraction of the functionality and capability of MOODLE yet have it all at our disposal regardless. 
  • MOODLE builds functionality on the assumption that we all know each other - as we would if we were all in the same class or in the same school. It provides functionality for collaborative learning, peer review, chat rooms, marking by teachers and forums to name a few. By design MOODLE was built for you to see what everyone else is doing and to interact and collaborate as much as possible. MOODLE was designed for students to track their learning and coursework. Of course the Home Ed community does not follow the standard education model and we are not using MOODLE in a standard way.  Common sense must prevail when using this site for example if you contribute to forums other people will see your contributions.
  • MOODLE tracks site engagement and generates site logs so that students can keep track of their learning progress and teachers can mark their input.  As an online virtual learning environment MOODLE inherently tracks student user engagement and input with courses and all other activities to support marking and reporting. 

By registering with and using this site you accept that  your actions and input into this site are not anonymous. If you wish to use this site as an anonymous user you must sign in as a guest (restricted access)


What do we do with site usage data and registered user usage data?

It is not used for marketing purpose's, It is not passed or sold to third parties. We don't have the time, inclination or interest to do anything at all with site data. If there is a technical problem in the way the site is functioning we may look at site logs to help us pinpoint the problem.
