How to Get the Most out of the Moodle Learning Management System

We are pleased to announce the first ANU Coffee Course for 2021: How to Get the Most out of the Moodle Learning Management System

In this upcoming short Coffee Course, we are going to discuss the most useful configuration of Moodle and its most useful tools to create a positive, engaging learning experience for your students. 


  • Day 1 - Putting on our Student Hat - Thinking about student-centred course design with an example of an engaging Moodle course by an ANU academic.
  • Day 2 - Behind the Scenes - We will look at the impact of the course settings and how the choice of Moodle tools can affect the look and feel of your course, and therefore the student experience. 
  • Day 3 - Tools for Interaction and Engagement - Using Lesson, Quiz and H5P as interactive tools: make engaging workbooks, branched scenarios, and challenge quizzes for formative learning.
  • Day 4 - Tools for Community and Collaboration - Create a feeling of connection and community using Moodle communication and collaboration tools.
