AOSIS eLearning: Moodle best practice – testing when you’re new to Moodle

When considering any type of software it is always best practice to first test the product before investing in it. This will allow you to see if the software features will meet your needs and in the long-term attribute to meeting your business goals.

AOSIS 20 June 2022

We recommend the following two options:

  1. A downloadable installation for either Mac (Moodle packages for Mac OS X) or Windows (Moodle packages for Windows) that you can install on your local computer for testing.
  2. An online site where you can test Moodle’s features without downloading it to your computer Visit the Moodle demo site. There are two options available for you; i) the Mount Orange School Demo which has populated courses to showcase Moodle features and to highlight the enhancements that each new Moodle version brings. You can navigate through the courses as either a teacher, admin, manager, student or parent, or ii) the Sandbox Moodle section of the site, which is. an empty (no learning content loaded) version of Moodle to experience its capabilities. It gives you a sense of the user-interface design within the latest version of Moodle. You are welcome to add learning content to the Sandbox area to see how the features work. Just note that the learning content may be available to other visitors to the site, so be thoughtful of what content you load. After a certain period of time the site resets itself clearing up any changes that were made.
