eLearn - Moodle at UOW

In 2006 the University selected Moodle as the centrally supported Learning Management System and implemented version 1.9 to replace Class Forum.  In 2007 the Waikato Centre for eLearning (WCEL) was established to provide effective support and leadership for the continuing development of eLearning at the University. Moodle’s open source licence allowed the university to modify some of the behaviour and features of the software to fit the needs and requirements of our staff. In November 2010 the Moodle community released a major new version, Moodle 2.0.  The University eLearn Moodle site was upgraded Tuesday 25th October 2011.
