Strong Mobile SupportIn addition to the ability to set different themes for different devices, Moodle even has standard themes for smartphones and tablets. This means that mobile isn’t just an afterthought. Mobile elearning development is actually a part of Moodle’s core functionality. If you have learners that are often on the go or can’t be in classrooms, this is an ideal solution. Moreover, if you have team members that need quick access to information outside of the office, you can provide it without any additional work using your Moodle LMS.
The Ability To Upload Media FilesMoodle allows you to upload media such as pictures, audio files, and videos from your devices. This is especially helpful for learners who want to flesh out their profiles and connect with each other. It can also come in handy for elearning developers should they have media that they want to save for later or share from their devices. More and more people are capturing media from their devices these days. The ability to take advantage of this media in e-learning is a massive advantage.
Functionality That Supports CollaborationOne of the potential downsides of remote e-learning is that your learners don’t necessarily get to connect with each other. However, Moodle supports both collaboration and community through a variety of different means. Course participants can:
- Send private messages to each other, online or off.
- Take personal notes on each other, online or off.
- Add other learners as phone contacts.
- Call other course participants.
- Locate other course participants using Google maps.
- View forum discussions.
- View events in the calendar.
