What is Moodle?

The online learning system that we use is called Moodle, which is the same system employed by many of the top universities in the UK and overseas. Moodle allows students to access course materials, gain feedback, contact tutors, upload work, see grades and much more all by logging in to their very own online account. All of your work is stored and accessible from your first day of the course to your last, ready for you to work towards the qualification of your choice. With over 70 million users worldwide, Moodle is the most popular and trusted learning system around today and is employed by not only the Online Learning College but many top UK universities including:

The web has changed somewhat in recent years as more people start to use smartphones and tablets, but Moodle is keeping with the times by being completely responsive meaning that you get the same content and easy to use system on any device. So studying on-the-go and to fit a busy lifestyle has never been so easy! With videos, lessons, messaging services and forums all accessible 24/7, learning with Moodle is by far the best way to gain a new qualification.

Not studied for a while? Don’t worry- Moodle is so easy to use that it only takes a few minutes to get the hang of it. The system is laid out as simply as possible to take the stress out of uploading new assignments and receiving feedback, with messages sent automatically to your email. Our Moodle administrators are constantly installing new features to add to our site, making things easier for our learners. The all-new ‘Progress Bar’ allows you to track your progress within a course and see the percentage you have completed.
