BHS Moodle

Balaklava High School is currently developing the use of Moodle,  a Virtual Learning Environment.   The Balaklava High School Moodle is for students and teachers to share learning materials, resources and engage in the exchange and development of ideas through discussions, blogs and email.  Electronic interaction between the teacher and students in the form of subject information, assignment submission and marking on line makes use of this technology.  An increasing number of faculty areas are implementing this exciting platform.
