Moodle is a Learning Management System (LMS) used for the creation, management and monitoring of online courses. Its purpose is to provide support for online teaching and learning.
Moodle is today the only teaching platform offered by UNIGE. Moodle was chosen for its flexibility, the great diversity and customization of its tools and its compatibility with a socio-constructivist pedagogy. In general, four hours are enough to understand the basics and to create an online space to accompany your teaching.

Quizzes can be used for student assessment or self-assessment. They can allow the instructor to test students’ understanding of the course throughout the semester or allow students to test their knowledge interactively by obtaining immediate feedback.
The activity contains a range of question types, including multiple-choice questions, true-false, gap texts, open questions, calculated questions, and drag and drop onto images or text.
Creating groups on Moodle allows you to restrict access to certain resources, activities or section of the course, to a group of students. The Group mode allows you to contact each group via the announcement channel, or to collect and evaluate group work effectively.
