Samudra Software operates in a niche corner of the software industry, the niche of online education.
Since its inception, Samudra Software has focused on servicing the educational sector. With the explosion of the internet, educational publishers, schools, and colleges started using learning management systems to provide online training/education to students/users. Since the educational sector is our focus, Samudra Software that already has a good team of individuals well experienced in open source technologies, started offering Moodle, Sakai – open source learning management systems (LMS), WordPress, Drupal – open source content management systems (CMS) to its clients.
Moodle – LMS
Over the years, Samudra Software has implemented Moodle learning management system for numerous clients. Along the way, it has created a proprietary library of 50+ unique plugins for the Moodle platform. These proprietary plugins enabled Samudra Software to deploy learning management systems that meet specific client requirements quickly and cost effectively.
Moodle is an open source Learning Management System (LMS) freely available via the Open Source General Public License (GPL) that educators can use to create effective online learning sites. Moodle stands for “Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment” and is now used as an enterprise-level, mission critical application by many higher education institutions around the world.
Moodle is a web application written in PHP (http://www.php.net). Though it can run on a wide variety of databases, MySQL (http://www.mysql.com) is used in majority of installations because it is also open source and quite popular among developers.
A Moodle site is made up of courses which are basically pages containing the learning materials, activities teachers want to share with their students.
Courses can contain content for a year’s studies, a single session or any other variants depending on the teacher or establishment. They can be used by one teacher or shared by a group of teachers.
A teacher in a Moodle course can select items from three different elements which together assist in the learning process.
They are: Activities, Resources and Blocks.
An Activity in Moodle is a feature where students learn by interacting with each other or with their teacher. They might for instance contribute in a forum, upload an assignment, answer questions in a quiz or collaborate together in a wiki. Activities can be graded.
A Resource in Moodle is an item that a teacher can add to a Moodle course to support learning, such as a file, a video or link to a website. A resource differs from an activity in that it is static; ie, the student can merely look at or read it, rather than participate.
A Block in Moodle is an item that a teacher can add to the left or right of a Moodle course page. They provide extra information or links to aid learning. Blocks are a bit like “widgets” elsewhere online and can contain for example, RSS news feeds, quiz results, a calendar, links to blogs, glossary terms or private files. There is also a simple HTML block which can be customized as the teacher wishes.
