As usual here are some institutions that have “gone Moodle” lately, either by adoption, switching hosting or just making headlines with their Moodliness.
- Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania USA [Campus Technology article]: To augment its us of Moodle Lehigh is adopting Mahara as their school’s eportfolio system as well, “We found that we had a real gap on our campus,” said Key. “We had Moodle for what the students considered to be very academic types of things. They go in, get their assignments, submit assignments–there is communication and collaboration that happens in there, but we had a whole host of other stuff that was happening [that wasn’t supported].” Check out the Moodle at https://moodle.lehigh.edu/.
- Bloomsbury Colleges, London, UK [press release by ULCC]: The Bloomsbury Colleges, composed of the following six colleges of the University of London: Birkbeck, the Institute of Education, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the Royal Veterinary College, the School of Oriental and African Studies and The School of Pharmacy announced their migration from Blackboard to University of London Computing Centre (ULCC) hosted Moodle recently.
