  • Defining beginner as anyone who has never used Moodle or who has taken one Moodle course but has never taught using Moodle, int/adv everyone else

    5. 7. <ul><li>&quot;I learned how to respond to other people and i learned internet safety. Ever since we started doing moodle my grammar got better to. I had a great year learning about how other people feel about the things that we needed to type about. This year i even learned how to type even faster. im going to miss doing moodle every week over the summer. I also learned about how other people talk in moodle and how to communicate better. I really enjoyed using moodle and i think its more fun than writing .&quot; </li></ul>
    6. 8. <ul><li>&quot;Moodle to me is a great tool for disscussing topics in a more comfterable enviroment. One of my favorite things was writting about what other people think of you because I'd really like to know what others think of me. Moodle is better for me then writting about something because I'm more creative when im online since it makes me feel more relaxed. Also, it's fun talking to people online that you already know.So over all I think it's a great program that helps students relax and just talk about what they think.&quot; </li></ul>
    7. 9. <ul><li>&quot;I like moodle when i dont want to do writing work . My favorite part about it is reading about what everybody wrote and typing a coment. My least favorite thing is when people type affensive things to other people.&quot; </li></ul>
