Moodle – Missouri CAN University

Missouri CAN is excited to announce the launching of a new resource for online, distance learning. It's called moodle.

What's Moodle?

Moodle is a Missouri CAN University of online courses for Community Action. Moodle is an online learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators, and learners with a single robust, secure, and integrated system to create personalized learning environments.

Why Moodle? 

Moodle's short video modules provide orientation-type trainings at your own pace. With anytime, anywhere access, Moodle's online format overcomes the barriers of cost and time required for in-person training. 

How do I use Moodle? 

The training video modules are recorded Powerpoint presentations or videos. They can be viewed by individuals or in front of a group. Be sure to check for the training handouts and discussion guides that come with some modules.
