A consistent and streamlined learning experience allows students to focus on the subject matter.
Good design creates opportunities to engage with the instructor,  classmates and the content.
Students have a team of people to assist them in the event of a Moodle training need.
All students can participate fully due to course accessibility reviews.

If you have questions about a course review checklist or if you want to know how your specific course could benefit from instructional design support.
If your course is changing in duration or format or if it is a brand new course 
If you would like a one-on-one or group training relating to Moodle or teaching online. 
If you are having trouble understanding course-based technology such as Moodle & Zoom. 

If you are teaching a course for the first time.
