IV. CONCLUSION: 

IV. CONCLUSION Moodle is: A platform to save and achieve teaching material easily. A collaborative online platform for teachers and students to learn together. Humanware: 'The key to successful use of technology in language teaching lies not in hardware or software but in humanware' (Warschauer andamp; Meskill, 2000). Teachers’ Participation: Moodle system does not promote learning or teaching on its own. Its effectiveness lies in the way of your participation and interaction to experience and feel that you are among like-minded people who share the same curiosities, needs and interests. Join the open source andamp; Moodle club and join our online communities today.
