With the capacity to support a single-teacher site as well as a 50 000-student online university portal, Moodle is flexible enough to allow for a diverse range of teaching modes. It has become very popular among educators around the world as a tool for creating online dynamic web sites for their students. To work, it needs to be installed on a web server somewhere, either on one of your own computers or one at a web hosting company.
At present, more than 30 000 educational organizations around the world use Moodle to deliver online courses or supplement traditional face-to-face courses. Based on well-tried and time-proved pedagogical traditions, it gives educators full control over all settings of a course through a user-friendly and easily operated WYSIWYG HTML editor.
It is important to remember that Moodle does not replace the teacher in any way, it is a support tool for sharing knowledge and facilitate learning using new technologies. A teacher is irreplaceable!
