Moodle is an open source Learning Management System (LMS) used extensively in the secondary and tertiary education sector in New Zealand and overseas. The Moodle in New Zealand Schools website is an initiative of Catalyst and the Ministry of Education to provide a community hub for Moodle experts and novices to meet. The site also provides a version of Moodle customised by Catalyst for New Zealand schools.
The initiative recognises the benefits available to schools if they collaborate on a common open platform such as Moodle. It also recognises Catalyst's commitment to Moodle and the growing number of schools using Moodle in New Zealand.
Catalyst staff participate in the forums to answer both technical and 'newbie' questions.
