Moodle Sites with Exemplary Design Elements

 

The following list of Moodle site examples was created by the NHDOE Office of Educational Technology (www.nheon.org/oet) as a resource for schools considering the use of Moodle. All of these sites came from the main Moodle directory of sites at http://www.moodle.org/sites/. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive, nor was it compiled in any systematic or scientific manner. It is simply a list with notes about site features as they were viewed online during the month of July 2006.
