Learn Moodle with Moonami
No matter how your organization uses an LMS (Learning Management System), one thing’s for certain – the name of the game is engaging, effective content. A common mistake among new Moodlers (and online educators in general) is to expect the software to generate beautiful, engaging courses right out of the box – with minimal effort. And while it’s true that anyone can create engaging content using Moodle’s basic tools, it can’t be overstated that the best courses come from folks who take the time to dive a little deeper and get to know the environment. Moodle is a sophisticated and robust tool that enables educators to cultivate exquisitely effective, visually appealing, and cognitively compelling courses.
