What is the Circle eLearning Campus?
Circle Christian School has invested in creating a tool to extend and enhance the educational opportunities for students, parents and teachers. This new tool will offer a relevant technology-rich environment that allows students to access documents and engage in discussions outside of the classroom. Circle’s eLearning Campus (eLC) is an online course management site containing course pages for all of Circle’s courses. This is a place for communication and extended learning for students and teachers. Parents are encouraged to come alongside their child as they access and explore the learning extensions offered on this site.
What is Moodle?
Moodle is the name of the software we use on the eLearning Campus. This is a powerful tool used to create online learning courses. Moodle is the software, and eLearning Campus is our website. Circle combines classroom experience with the eLearning Campus to create a “blended classroom” of traditional and online learning. This blended classroom goes beyond a typical webpage. These courses do not replace the classroom teaching at Circle, nor does it replace the parent’s directed teaching. These blended classrooms extend the learning and teaching opportunities of the physical classroom to include graphics, video, websites, directed conversations, peer discussions, assignment submissions and even an educational game or two. We are excited about providing technology-rich relevant educational opportunities for your student.
How do we use the eLearning Campus?
The eLearning Campus was built with your student in mind. Each student is provided a user account and password. Students are enrolled in the blended classroom or course page that coincides with their physical classroom enrollments at your Circle Campus. We want to encourage parents to login with their students to see what they are learning and to provide further guidance.
Students will need to login and access the course pages for each of their courses each week. Teachers have prepared weekly modules that coincide with that week’s classroom instruction. These weekly modules can contain but are not limited to support documents, graphics,video, websites, directed conversations, peer discussions, assignment submissions educational games and even virtual field trips.
