The University is very keen to use technologies to support eLearning. To support blended and distance learning, the University has been using Learning Management System (LMS) for eLearning since 2000. Now we are using Moodle as our LMS, and currently we are using Moodle version 2.7 .
OCIO and LTTC work closely together to support our LMS and other eLearning platforms.
The Moodle LMS is setup as follows:
- Integrate with our Student Information Systems (SIS) so that courses will be automatically created according to the SIS.
- Front-line support and training are provided by the Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC).
- Turnitin anti-plagiarism system are integrated with Moodle LMS to check plagiarism when submitting assignments.
To access Moodle LMS, please visit http://moodle.eduhk.hk.
We also have platforms to support other eLearning initiatives, such as, Mahara ePortfoilio system for reflective learning – http://mahara.eduhk.hk.
To support distance learning, we have Acrobat Connect (http://connect.eduhk.hk) collaboration servers and also video conferencing facilities (video-conferencing-service).
There are also Echo360 class capture system (echo360-recording-service) to facilitate instructors to record their classes if needed.
