e-Activity 7.1

Please identify five specific ways in which an LMS could be used in your teaching and learning context. Phrase your response as if you are sharing tips and tricks with a new teacher who has never used an LMS (maximum 100 words).

An example of a suitable partial response could be: "My LMS is Moodle, which enables me to rate student contributions in an online (forum) discussion in which they have to argue for or against a proposal to ban cigarettes in New Zealand. You can give a qualitative rating or assign a mark for each student contribution."

For those students enrolled in the Foundation Skills course through Otago Polytechnic, please add your responses to the appropriate Moodle wiki.
