I'm a librarian and webadmin at a small college library. I've installed Moodle on my server. I've begun to explore it and all the wonderful information here at moodle.org.
I'm starting to wonder though if moodle is appropriate for our needs. We don't teach formal courses per se. Instead we usually teach single 1 - 2 hour library sessions that focus primarily on searching periodical and other research databases. Students usually have a term paper project or other report tied to the library user education session, but we really don't test students on the material we cover.
I'd like to set up a series of online tutorials that students could take on their own initiative that complement the instruction sessions. These tutorials might have a quiz at the end, but not necessarily.
Since we don't teach a series of classes in the normal fashion over a semester, I'd like to hear comments from you Moodle users about whether we should use Moodle or if some other software might be more appropriate.
Thanks for any feedback on this.
