Published February 1, 2015  |  English (Second Language)

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Published August 28, 2014  |  English (Second Language)

Giel Hofmann Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

As well, the increasing presence of Moodle in our colleges means that building a Moodle course as a way to reach students more effectively is becoming increasingly unavoidable.
