What best describes and contextualize my response to this activity is the use of “digital literacies” for teaching. They feature seven elements that are designed to support both teaching and learning: media, information, digital scholarship, learning skills, ICT literacy, career, identity management, communications, and collaboration. On the other hand, it also encourages information literacy; we deal with finding, interpreting, evaluating, managing, and sharing information.  The technology of Moodle is well designed for students, teachers, and instructors.  This program enhances, in context, leading research practices and competency standards to provide learners and educators transferable knowledge and skills that impact teaching and learning practices.  It creates an effective learning environment merging from the traditional classroom to the online world. It teaches us basic computer skills, such as typing, sending E-Mails, working with PDF’s, and dealing with online videos and files. It keeps students engaged for better learning with a diversity education of methods. As for higher education, it opens a steady stream of communication, research, enables collaboration, and teamwork.
