UNAM Moodle LMS vs Students Portal info

Uses of UNAM Student Portal vs Moodle LMS: It seems that there there is a misunderstanding about the uses (or purposes) of UNAM Student Portal and UNAM Moodle LMS. In fact, the online teaching and learning will be done through the Moodle Learning Platform, rather than the Student Portal.

The university mentioned that as part of the remote Learning and Teaching strategy of the University, these two platforms (student portal and LMS Moodle) will complement each other.


UNAM MOODLE LMS (Learning Management System)

Moodle provides for effective student-centred learning through active interaction with fellow students, learning content or activities. Something that cannot be done to the same extent through the Student Portal.

It further provides opportunities for mobile learning through the Moodle Mobile app and assessment through the use of mobile devices.
