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 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.
