Introduction to the Moodle Course Management System for Librarians

Peter Kirlew, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities


Moodle is an open-source course management system that can deliver online library instruction content (such as classes, library workshops, specialized training materials for colleagues, etc.) in an asynchronous format. It is relatively easy to learn because it provides pre-designed layout templates, and no HTML or programming skills are necessary. Value-added Moodle features include discussion forums, simple quizzes, etc. Each workshop participant will learn how to start building a basic Moodle library instruction class.
