Moodle is a VLE, or virtual learning environment, that was created specifically for online courses, and is designed to be easy to use, interactive and helpful.

Once you’ve enrolled and received your login, you’ll be able to access your course, which is easy to follow and designed so that you always know where you are, what you have to do and how you can progress through the course.

Each module is presented as a book, you just ‘turn’ the pages as you work through the module. Moodle gives us the opportunity to provide you with varied activities to help your learning in each unit, such as quizzes and interactive material. Resources such as videos are used in units whenever possible, so you don’t have to leave the Moodle to view them and you don’t need to download lots of documents.

On Moodle, it’s easy to:

  • Complete unit activities
  • Check your answers to unit activities
  • Submit your assessments
  • Receive feedback from an assessor
  • Keep up to date with any news or announcements relevant to your Diploma

One thing you always need to keep in mind – you can’t break it!
