About Moodle

Moodle is Butler's learning management system. Moodle is an open-source application and is supported by a vast community. In particular, Butler's instance of Moodle is customized for liberal arts institutions and its development is guided by the Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP) community. Moodle was initially created to ease the creation of online courses. However, it has grown and evolved substantially since its early days and is now a powerful tool for supporting learning in the physical classroom and online. Moodle is known for its flexibility. In part, this comes from its ability to use plugins. Plugins are software programs that work in conjunction with Moodle to extend functionality. Many publishers and educational software developers have created plugins that are compatible with Moodle. Butler's instance of Moodle supports many plugins.
