What is Moodle?

Moodle is an LMS (Learning Management System) that allows users to deliver content and instruction through a private website. Faculty can create individual Moodle courses for both their on-site classes and for their online courses. Among other things, Moodle allows faculty to post lectures, videos, assignments, discussion forums, quizzes, and questionnaires. Additionally, faculty and staff may use Moodle courses for various non-class related activities such as committees, project management, feedback, polling, and application submission.

What is Instructional Design?

Instructional Design is the systematic development of instruction that most effectively facilitates the transfer of knowledge, skills, and attitude to learners. Instructional Designers carefully consider how students learn and what materials and methods will help them achieve their academic goals. The principles of instructional design address the design, creation, and delivery of educational tools to any learning group. Instructional Design principles enhance learning at every level: a Moodle course, a campus course, a lecture, or even a single assignment.
