What is Moodle?

Moodle LMS

If you're brand new to Royal Roads University or brand new to online learning, you may have been wondering...just what is Moodle anyway?

Moodle is a Learning Management System (often shortened to just "LMS"). An LMS is a platform that we use to deliver courses. Moodle allows us to share course content, have online discussions, and engage in other interactive activities with our students. Moodle also allows faculty to collect and mark student assignments.

There are other LMSs in the world - you may have heard of some of them. Some examples are Blackboard Learn, Canvas, and D2L. At RRU, we use Moodle.
