The UNU is delighted to announce that it has adopted Moodle as the online learning management system (LMS) to support the 2009 International Course. Moodle is one of the most popular open source LMSs with other 56,000 sites in 211 countries.
To access the UNU’s Moodle installation visit: learn.unu.edu
Currently four courses are being supported online with direct involvement from faculty at the UNU-Institute for Sustainability and Peace. It is hoped that other UNU institutes will utilize this resource to run their courses online.
The initial reaction to the use of Moodle has been very positive from the students and lecturers involved. The UNU International Course runs from 11 May to 19 June 2009.
The experience for the adoption of Moodle to support the IC2009 will provide useful insights for the implementation of the planned graduate degrees from 2010 onwards.
