MOODLE - Distance Learning
The RTC has established an E-learning platform which is used to deliver courses through the use of MOODLE. The software allows for self development through course material and self assessment through quizzes before the learner partakes in formal face to face training. It is thus excellent in terms of the blended learning approach (distance learning and face to face training) which the RTC is moving towards.
MOODLE stands for Modular Object-Orientated Dynamic Learning Environment and is a Course Management System (CMS) for producing Web based courses and is very logical to use as it runs on an external server and helps educators and trainers to create online courses which are excellent for distance learning. It also enables great interaction and learning experiences between learners who can form part of specific forums to share ideas, problems and solutions.
The list of the courses available on MOODLE link can be found on http://moodle.weathersa.co.za/moodle
Please note that although you will be able to see the courses that are available, you will not be able to access the material related to a particular course until registration has been finalised and a specific username and password has been assigned.
