Dr Mark Glynn - IoTI

The VLE is integral to most higher education with HE in Ireland no exception. More than half of the higher education institutions in Ireland use the open source product Moodle as their main Learning Management System (LMS) with the remainder using a commercial counterpart Blackboard. As Blackboard has evolved to Blackboard 9, Moodle has moved to Moodle 2.

This evolution to Moodle 2 brings numerous changes for the lecturer and student. This LT will highlight some of the key changes for the lecturer leading with the pedagogical benefits and not the technology niceties.
