The Moodle is the common LMS used in our tertiary institutions in Kiribati. This is useful to support the learning of students as they can access their learning materials and communicate with their peers and teachers.
I use Moodle, I think t’s important to use the LMS in a way that aligns with my teaching philosophy and goals and to remain flexible and adaptable.
2. It helpful for creating a course outline or syllabus, uploading course materials such as readings and videos, and creating assignments and assessments. Also helpful to communicate with my students and facilitate discussion and collaboration by posting announcements and updates, initiate discussions, and provide feedback and grades on assignments.
We use Moodle, which is a great tool. It has a lot of options to communicate with students and conduct teaching/learning activities such as Moodle Quiz, Discussion Forums, Drop Box, etc.
The Learning Management System (LMS) we use in our context is Moodle. The way we support our learners using our institutional LMS is described below;
We prepare relevant learning materials including reading materials and video clips on different topics for students, and send it onto the school Moodle for the students to access before the class or lesson holds. We also encourage students to share what they learnt from the learning material with their peers on the Moodle during the lesson. The teachers equally make overall comments and guide, and provide students with a knowledge-based assessment on the topics to ensure every student has learnt something from the learning materials. A knowledge-based assessment is given consisting of about 5 to10 multiple choice questions, which students access on the Moodle instantly and immediate feedback is provided for students to ascertain their areas of strength and weakness. The teachers should then ask if there are further questions or needs for more clarifications about the topics. Students are encouraged to post on the discussion forum.
That is great. So, how do you help your learners during a lesson to use the Moodle?
My College has a dedicated Learning Management System (LMS) that is centralize, and provided by FlexiSaf Migeria. However, free web-based platform like Google Classroom are used by individual teachers to manage and organize their digital classrooms.

My institution has a dictated LMS for the distant learning program. Our LMS provide a discussion forum for students to share and raise questions for every topic discussed. There are also activities associated with each topic of discussion. Assignments are also a part of each module they participate in. Resources are available for download at anytime for learners. Other platforms are also used along the LMS for easy communication among learners.
During the Covid 19 pandemic, we used TEAMS platform, but because the MOE has continue to do F2F.
MS Teams was used and it was difficult to download this platform on the device they used.
Some teachers used Google classrooms, Zoom and google meet, since it was preferred by parents and students. WhatsApp was also used.
