So, what is this "Moodle" program anyway, and what can I do with it?
Good questions! Everyone starts somewhere, and so we'll try to give you some background on what Moodle is and how and why you should use it at VCC.
But, what is this thing called Moodle?
Moodle at Vancouver Community CollegeAt Vancouver Community College, Moodle is used for everything from simply storing course resources to delivering “mixed mode” or 100% online courses.
VCC's Moodle systems are maintained and supported by the DL Support team, under the Centre for Instructional Development. DL Support provides Moodle training and technical support for all VCC Faculty and Staff.
At VCC, Faculty assist their students with any issues encountered in their Moodle course, and DL Support assists Faculty with troubleshooting any issues. DL Support also provides training in Moodle content authoring and course administration. Basically, at VCC, Faculty helps Students in their online learning, and DL Support helps Faculty.
