Moodle LogoMoodle ( is an open-source course management system that has been used by the School of Biomedical Informatics at UTHealth for distance education. A great number of courses at SBMI are hybrid or Web-based courses taught using Moodle. We host our own Moodle site in a fully serviced and secure environment and provide a range of quality support services. You can view our Moodle tutorials at the YouTube SBMI Tutorials Channel.

Moodle contains similar features that are embedded in many course management systems:

  • Forums
  • Quizzes with different kinds of questions
  • Blogs & Wikis
  • Database activities, Surveys and Chat
  • Glossaries
  • Peer assessment
  • Graphical themes
