Moodle Resources and Training

Moodle is a tool for creating online, dynamic websites for your students. You may use it simply as a repository of supplemental resources, or as a place for all of your course materials (including exams, video, and readings). Login to Moodle at  www.moodle.loyola.edu or Inside Loyola home page.

Build Interactivity to Foster Learning

Students tend to learn more when they’re intensely involved in their education; when asked to think about what they are learning and apply it in different settings. Multimedia applications together with individual approaches can help in this direction. We offer and support several multimedia tools to help you keep students engaged and actively learning:

Available Interactive Tools  and Descriptions
Adobe Connect: This cloud-based tool fosters synchronous interaction and allows the creation of virtual classrooms. It can be invaluable in the event of unscheduled closings.
