Abstract/Summary This presentation outlines an approach to implementing a Learning Management System (LMS) in a Secondary School environment. The LMS that will be discussed is the open source GNU licensed Learning Management System Moodle. I will be drawing from upon my own experience of implementing 3 Moodle’s in three different schools over the past four years. The level of detail will not be overly technical but at a level hopefully suitable for those curious about LMS and especially open source solutions like Moodle. By the end of this paper you will gain an understanding of what processes are necessary to successfully install a Moodle LMS at your school. Even if you are not considering installing Moodle or already have a LMS at your school this paper may provide ideas about how to improve your existing practices or even consider migrating to Moodle.
