What is Moodle?


Haverford college uses Moodle (moodle.haverford.edu) as the learning management system (LMS) for academic courses. In addition, many committees, student groups, and other organizations use a different instance of Moodle (moodlegroups.haverford.edu) for their group. Request a Moodle site for your departments, committees, student groups, and other organizations.

Design and Build Course Sites
