What is Moodle?

Moodle is the open-source course management system (CMS) currently used by Hope College. The CMS was given the name Moodle for two reasons. First it is Australian slang that means "to toss around an idea in your head for a while to look at different aspects of it". Second Moodle is the acronym for the full name of this CMS; Modular Object Oriented Developmental Learning Environment. On Wikipedia, a course management system is defined as "a computer program that facilitates computerized learning or e-learning, especially by helping teachers and learners with course administration." CMS' give teachers the tools to grant easier access for the sharing of ideas. Tools such as the ability to upload assignments, hold discussions online, give online quizzes and surveys, and record grades.
