Moodle

Are teachers required to have a MOODLE course for students?

Answer:  Training on how to create and maintain a MOODLE site is being offered this year. Although many teachers already have created a MOODLE site, teachers are not required to have one at this time. 

How does a student obtain a password and user name to access Moodle?

Answer: Moodle access uses the DASD network username and DASD network password. If there is a Moodle course, the student will view it when he/she logs in: http://moodle.dasd.org. Please keep in mind that not all courses utilize a Moodle component. Teachers are working on how best to take advantage of Moodle in their classrooms.
