Joseph Guarino discussed Moodle, a Course Management System that educators can use to create effective online learning sites.


Moodle is a powerful learning management system that lets you build and manage an online learning environment built upon impressive open source technology. It encourages rich collaboration and interaction between teachers and students that lead to better educational outcomes. Although the hacker credo, "Information wants to be free" isn't always true - the tools of sharing that information often are. Moodle is a shining example of a transformative technology birthed out of the genius of the open source community. Join us to see how Moodle is successful at fostering communication, collaboration and learning.
