What is "Moodle"?
I just noticed that something called "Moodle" has appeared on the Web resources page. Is this new, or am I even MORE out of it than I knew? And can someone tell me what it's for? It looks like a cousin of CampusWeb?

Moodle.. is the "New" blackboard

Your professor will let you know if you need to register on it, but it's basically another internet tool that professors use to supplement classwork. Like Blackboard.

As far as I understand it, Moodle is still in "pilot" phase right now -- some classes are using it to test how well it works for Drew's purposes and what would need to be done to make it a replacement for the aging and increasingly more expensive Blackboard system.
