Abstract

Moodle is a widely used Learning Management System, with a market share of 20% in the US/Canada and 65% in Europe. However, it is our experience that the system is too often used just as a website or repository for classical teaching material such as literature references, slides and problems for students to solve after the lectures, and that the fully potential of the platform is not exploited. In this paper we demonstrate some of the functionalities that university teachers can make use of to increase the learning experience of the students. For each of the features we demonstrate, we both show how it can be used, and give some didactic considerations. We have tested all of the presented features ourself in a blended learning course carried out as part of an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership.
