Southend Adult Community College: Independent learning through Moodle
The introduction of Moodle at Southend Adult Community College has given students access to course materials, induction materials and course resources. As students on Language courses are studying the course on a part-time basis they can view these documents while on the train going to work at weekends and on holiday. This encourages the development of independent learning skills and reinforces learning before the class. Tutors report more focused learners who are confident in using online resources.The tutors no longer have to carry course portfolios, thus saving time and printing costs. The tutors have improved their ILT skills and confidence through using Moodle and through developing online course materials.
