  • These are the digital learning tools that are supported by the Academic Innovation & Distance Education Team.
  • We encourage faculty, staff and students at BHCC to be creative and to try many different tools to support learning!
  • The AIDE Team cannot officially support all learning platforms, but we are always willing to try and work with you to navigate different tools.
  • Schedule a meeting with a member of our team to let us know what you are interested in working on.
 

 Moodle

Moodle

Moodle is the official Learning Management System (LMS) used at BHCC. It is a site where every faculty member (or staff member) can build Moodle course sites for each one of their classes. These course sites act as a teaching and learning environment where Teachers and educators can deliver resources, assignments, quizzes and facilitate discussion forums for their students. The department of Academic Innovation & Distance Education (AIDE) creates a Moodle site for every class at BHCC (Not every class is required to use Moodle, but the course shell or template is available if a faculty member decides to use it). Every BHCC user has access to Moodle and can login using their BHCC login credentials.
