What is Moodle?
If you're brand new to Royal Roads University or brand new to online learning, you may have been "noodling" this question over...just what is Moodle anyway?
Moodle is a Learning Management System, and a Learning Management System (often shortened to just "LMS") is an online repository in which we develop and deliver interactive RRU 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 learning management systems - you may have heard of some of them. Some examples are Blackboard Learn, Canvas or Desire2Learn. We just happen to currently use Moodle at RRU.
