MOODLE (Moodle is an Open Source Course Management System)
This is our district-wide learning management system. To create a teacher account. Submit a service ticket at Footprint at helpdesk.vsb.bc.ca.
MOODLE facilitates online or blended instruction. In addition, many teachers use MOODLE to warehouse their resources as well as a submission tool and gradebook.
At the time of writing, we are running Moodle version 2.6.1+ on Secondary MOODLE site and Elementary MOODLE site.
What if my students don't have email address?
Moodle does require a student to sign up with an email address. But for very young children you may have some obvious concerns of getting them email adresses which they have to manage. Other than fake email addresses, there is a good work-around. See Kim Cofino's work around by using "email alias" feature of Gmail account.
Here's another link that describe how Email Alias or Linked email of Gmail account works.
Page appears broken on Chrome and Firefox / some content is not displayed on a Moodle page
VSB's moodle sites are secured with encryption. Therefore when a course content include link(s) to insecured content from internet, such content may be blocked by modern browser such as Chrome and Firefox by default. That makes the page appear "broken" or content "blanked out". Below is some reference about this issue and ways to unblock the content on different browsers.
