Moodle Game

Moodle is a software package designed to create Internet-based courses and web sites. It is a global development project designed within a social constructionist framework of education and was designed by Martin Dougiamas from Australia as a component of his PhD. The term Moodle accounts for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment. It is provided free as open-source software, under the GNU Public License, and can run on a system that supports PHP, while it is possible to combine with various types of databases, particularly MySQL. Moreover, it has been translated into 81 languages (up to January 2010).

The features of Moodle could be divided in three main categories. First, Moodle includes interactive activities such as assignments, live discussion (chat), surveys, forums, glossaries, quizzes, collaborative writing of texts, research, polls and games. Secondly, various applications are incorporated in the Moodle environment, such as a text processor, a calendar, a search engine and a logging system. Finally, there are some general type features, such as creation of backup copies, available help system, regrouping of users as well as assigning users to courses and providing them with a role and specific rights in that context.
