I'm curious if anyone in the home education community uses Moodle? Moodle is a social learning tool that is FREE and akin to using Lego blocks for building. Moodle is a platform with many different "blocks" that allow the teacher to design a learning environment that is engaging and on-line. My mind reels with the possibility.
You see, I'm all about sharing. Really, I am. That is why I do many, many book clubs and invite others into my house for classes or co-schooling. What I'm curious about is if I created classes using Moodle, would others be interested in using it. For free. If I build it, will they come?
I am not a fan of social networking unless its controlled. By controlled, I mean you join a group of like-minded individuals, passwords and authentication is required. Not just everyone can browse your profile or "ask to be your friend," Participants must be invited or if they ask to join, must be approved. I'm not an elitist. I'm just careful.
I'm really curious. Please leave a note in the combox about how you feel about social, interactive learning. I would like to know whether Catholic Home Education content I created would be of interest to others...
