Description of the Moodle VLE which is available for online courses.

Moodle is the University of Edinburgh's centrally supported virtual learning environment for online distance learning programmes.

Moodle brings together tools for presenting course content and supporting interaction and communication for staff and students. This includes integrations with other centrally provided services such as Turnitin and Collaborate as well third-party plugins to extend the functionality of Moodle itself.

Staff on a distance learning programme can choose to use Moodle to deliver their content. These pages provide information for staff on setting up a Moodle course, logging in to Moodle and accessing help and resources online.
