We had originally intended on using Moodle to facilitate our class discussions.

Moodle is a free software e-learning platform (also known as a Learning Management System). Moodle has many features expected from an e-learning platform including:
  • Forums
  • Content managing (resources)
  • Quizzes with different kinds of questions
  • Blogs
  • Wikis
  • Database activities
  • Surveys
  • Chat
  • Glossaries
  • Peer assessment
  • Multi-language support (over 60 languages are supported for the interface
For the purposes of this class, we will be using Moodle to communicate (primarily using its forums) as a class and introduce new tools.

Moodle is open source and can be downloaded from this web site.
