What Is Moodle?
Moodle is a learning management system (LMS) that can be used to complement face-to-face courses or deliver courses completely online.
Moodle enables students to view and download course content and participate in online activities that the Instructor may have enabled, such as assignments, discussion forums, quizzes, and chat.
Moodle enables instructors to create flexible and active online learning environments that are intuitive to use and easy to manage.

The Help block is a customized block that is created to provide both instructors and students with time-sensitive information related to Moodle.
