Paula Peres, Manuel da Silva, Sandra Ribeiro

Abstract

Nowadays, a constant concern with the quality level of the educative/educational offers in Institutions of Higher Education is verifiable. In order to accomplish that, they should acquire the capacity/capability to adapt to the new characteristics of their target audience and the new communication and information technologies that emerge every day. In such context, and as an answer to the upcoming demands, ISCAP (School of Accounting and Administration has initiated a project called PAOL – Projecto de Apoio On-Line (On-Line Support Project). Its main goal is to provide support to the implementation of computer assisted teaching, it being constituted by human and material resources (software – an open source LMS, called Moodle, and hardware). This article intends to reveal the knowledge acquired throughout the experience in the use of the LMS Moodle at ISCAP, in the second semester of the 2004/2005 school year.
