In praise of Moodle In the Faculty of Business we have been using Moodle for a number of years now to deliver our online Global MBA. We had the usual anxieties when moving from our previous VLE, but the change proved simple. I am not particularly adept technology wise but Moodle is so intuitive and flexible it took a relatively short time to get the basics. Having used Brookes Virtual (Blackboard), I think there is simply no comparison. Moodle is definitely much more user friendly and easy to use. I also think the students will find it so much easier and will not have any problem finding their way around it. Barbara Hocking, Senior Lecturer Global MBA, Business School
Still in praise of Moodle Our students are all mature students (age range yrs) and none get much more than 2 days to look at Moodle before term starts. We find that our students take very easily to the Moodle VLE and that it is embraced by them completely. As an administrator the benefits include the ability of students to upload their assignments wherever they are in the world and also for our tutors to be able to mark these and upload marks and feedback as required. The resulting reports are easily downloadable and usable. John Scholefield, Programme Administrator, Business School
