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.
- 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 is built for teachers to see what everyone is doing, mark submissions, monitor engagement of students with courses, 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.
