The Holton USD 336 Moodle Server
Also, enrollment and enroll are spelled incorrectly on the "set up account" instructions.
Also, it took me a minute to realize that I couldn't just drag or copy and paste the emoticon, but had to do the keystrokes. I'm too used to chatting with an easy send!
I think I will like this. Will students have access to this by putting in their names and passwords? Then will they somehow go on a site I have created to do the chatting? I want to learn more! I think Chris will teach me shortly. How do we make sure that students post proper messages - school appropriate?
Mr. Beam will be using Moodle at the inservice on Monday January 19th so save up those good questions for then too. :)
We currently have several teachers that have entire classes on Blackboard (hosted by ESSDACK), so the thought of hosting our own site would be great.
I am not sure how other students feel about moodle so far, as we have not been using it in the classroom for very long, but I really like it. Posting online is becoming more and more popular, so maybe some students will be more willing to learn in a medium such as this.
Although it does eliminate a little bit of the one-on-one discussion with the teacher (in some cases), I know that I feel more comfortable sharing my thougths and that I can better organize them when I have time to think about it. I really feel that this is a great idea and any time invested in moodle will be well worth it.
Just in case you wanted the opinion of a student... ^-)
