Greetings,

I am a first year teacher fresh out of college. have any of you worked with Moodle? I am interested in migrating my classes into the Moodle site and want to know if anybody has some advice. I teach 9th-12th grade English classes and want to focus my upper leel classes on Moodle. I think it could help to prepare them for learning in the college realm.

I am interested in both success stories and concerns.

Thank you!

I had to sign up on a Moodle this summer for a NCTM conference. As a Mac user, I found it extremely frustrating!

How about a Wiki or a Blog instead?

My school district has only approved Moodle for an online learning tool. Did you have issues access Moodle from your Mac? I have a mac...and will not switch over to a windows system, so I do not want to start something I cannot ustilize from home.

I use it all the time on a mac. They key is that, on mac, moodle does not like safari - you must use firefox.

It isn't the greatest but once you get used to it, it works fine. I've used it for about 3 years now with 5th graders and they find it very user friendly.
