Using the Moodle platform in Portugal: Moodle in basic and secondary schools in Portugal
Keywords:Moodle, ICT, learning strategies, teaching strategies
AbstractIn this paper we analyze the use that is given to Moodle Platform in Portugal. Analyzing what are the more widespread uses of this platform in terms of literature, we confront the use given to it in our country. This study integrates information from one research project with 2674 students and 324 teachers. Both the students and the teachers were interviewed in a deep way about the use they do of the Moodle Platform. In terms of results, we find that although the Moodle Platform is already widespread among us, however, its use is essentially limited to the completion of traditional classes merely serving to put information. Other more ambitious features of Moodle are still extremely rare for reasons that we present and problematize.
