Online Training (eLearning on Moodle)
What is it?
GTIS maintains several elearning sites which use the Moodle learning management platform. These sites include elearning.sil.org, distantcourses.org and course-connections.sil.org.
Who is it for?
The elearning sites are primarily used for courses related to SIL/Wycliffe work. Teachers of courses can request that others be given access to the sites. For example, a teacher at an SIL can have a course hosted on one of the sites and can request access for their students regardless of whether they are involved in missions.
