I like discovering how people use Moodle in ways other than the traditional teacher/student interaction. It not only gives a glimpse into individual creativity, but also underlines just how versatile a platform Moodle can be.
In this case, a Houghton College writing professor noticed a gap in the relationships between students at the College’s main campus and those at a satellite campus in Buffalo. She pioneered a pen pal program between the two groups that not only helps to improve students’ writing skills, it also provides an opportunity for them to break down social barriers.
What unusual, or non-traditional, ways have you used Moodle (or seen others use it)? Tell us in the comments below!
