It might look like a technology at the verge of obsolescence, but the USB pen, also known as a flash or thumb drive, still serves many purposes in industrialized and developing regions alike. Not the least of them is education. Steve Grono, Learning Designer at the University of New England, created and maintains Spoodle, which gives students offline access to a fully-fledged learning experience with the best and latest Moodle has to offer.
Since its launch, Spoodle has offered a straightforward solution to access Moodle with limited connectivity. A teacher can create a Course on a traditional Moodle installation, and then “export” it to a USB memory, also known as a stick or jump drive. The packaged Moodle can then be easily copied as is onto other drives. As soon as the student plugs it in, Moodle is instantly available.
