Welcome back to the LSE and a very happy 2010 to each of you!

In June 2009 we asked you students to complete a survey on your experiences with and opinions of Moodle and the results were overwhelmingly positive. new year image by optical illusionMost of you really seem to be happy with it (45% very satisfied! 50% fairly satisfied!) and 91% of you agree that Moodle had been a valuable component of your course. At the time of the survey undergraduates had only been using Moodle for one academic year so this is really a positive result. Thanks to all of you who shared their views with us.

Of course, we appreciate positive and negative criticism alike. The former tells us where we are going right; the latter tells us what we need to improve.

Understandably you were not happy about:
  • Too many broken links
  • PDFs not opening properly
  • Inconsistency of Moodle use – every course should use it!

We are going to feed this back to your teachers and will do our best to help them improve their course areas. And we will continue to find ways to improve Moodle for both students and teachers.

Here's to a successful 2010 for all of us.
