Abstract:

The term Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (MOODLE) or simply Moodle is a growing system in the information technology education field. It is a learning management system that uses the web. It is also now a verb that describes the process of doing an online course. Anyone who uses Moodle is a Moodler. This study was initiated to determine the potential of using an institutional learning management system that will serve as the standard tool for use in the virtual classroom. The learning management system contains features on enrolment, roles, course management, course report, and modules on assignment, chat, forum, glossary, lesson, quiz, survey, and workshop. A series of initial tests was conducted to advance the knowledge of the researchers about Moodle and propagate the learning to the end users (the institution). The establishment of a learning management system is composed of the Moodle software, a server, and a webhosting site. The LMS was evaluated by the student respondents in four areas: the system, the technical support, functions and capabilities, and the tools and were found to generally good and acceptable.
