VIRTUAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

Ursuline has made a strategic investment in a learning management system that facilitates 21st century learning – MOODLE.

MOODLE allows teachers to provide students with access to web based teaching and learning materials such as lecture notes, links to useful websites such as Google Apps for Education, and Evernote. Further, MOODLE provides access to learning activities such as assignments, discussion forums, and other interactive activities integrated directly into the tool. Examples include VoiceThread and Visual Thesaurus.

MOODLE is an acronym for Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment and there are 83,016 currently active sites registered from 236 countries throughout the world. One of the significant benefits of utilizing MOODLE is that all Ursuline students, as early as the 6th grade, become expert in interacting with a virtual learning environment that they will encounter in college.
