What is Moodle?
Moodle is a web-based course management system (CMS) sometimes known as a virtual learning environment (VLE). Moodle software helps professors, teachers, and trainers create and deliver effective online learning to students around the world.
Notre Dame College relies on Moodle for its campus-based courses, as well as its hybrid and online courses. However, the College uses two versions of Moodle. A fully campus-based classroom course uses Moodle, 3.0. This version of Moodle is hosted and supported by an IT team different from the one which hosts and supports the online and hybrid learning courses and programs.
It is customary for students taking online and hybrid (a blend of online and classroom) courses to use the Moodle version 3.2.2. Although there are similarities to the campus based Moodle environment, there are notable differences as well. Online Moodle is hosted and supported by the Learning House. If you need technical help, contact technical support. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 800.985.9781.
Moodle for Online Students
Courses that do not meet on campus are considered fully online and can be accessed at http://ndc.learninghouse.com. Use your NDC username and password to access the courses.
Since fully online students may be located anywhere in the world, NDC has provided an additional Moodle portal for these students with access to enhanced technologic tools, such as virtual classrooms, through Adobe Connect.
