|Answer: i-mail is an internal [e-]mail that only works within the high school's local area network and as such will not allow you to send email messages via the Internet. It has been programmed to work that way. |
At any rate, you can use the standard web mails such as Yahoo! or Gmail to send/receive emails subject to the permission of your computer teacher.
Update: i-mail has been deactivated for now.

|Answer: MOODLE stands for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment. The hsportal is an adaptation of MOODLE but it has been customized to adapt to the needs of the high schoolcommunity. MOODLE is based on the Constructionist Pedagogy of Learning, which is also based from the philosopy of Constructivism. It asserts that students learn more by doing (constructing). |
Moodle is an open source e-learning platform. It has a very large user base with 12,165 registered sites in 155 countries with 4,021,531 users in 376,565 courses (as of May 30, 2006).
Moodle is a software package designed to help educators create quality online courses. Such e-learning systems are sometimes also called a Learning Management System (LMS), Course Management System (CMS), Virtual Learning Environments (VLE), education via computer-mediated communication (CMC) or just Online Education (e-learning).
Constructivism asserts that knowledge is constructed in the learner's mind, not transmitted in an unchanged form from books or teachers. The learner is able to learn based on his or her own experiences. A teacher operating from this point of view creates a student-centered environment that helps students build upon their existing skills and knowledge, rather than simply publishing and then assessing the information they think students need to know. However, some of the main features of Moodle are the ability to add items such as texts followed by multiple choice questions, quizzes and suchlike - which are effectively "publishing and then assessing information".
The social constructionist philosophy of Moodle builds further on constructivism by asserting that such learning occurs particularly well in a collaborative environment that everyone builds together. In Moodle, this includes features that support role sharing, such as permissions options that allow each participant to be a teacher as well as a learner. The task as a 'teacher' can change from being 'the source of knowledge' to being an influencer and role model of class culture, connecting with students in a personal way that addresses their own learning needs, and moderating discussions and activities in a way that collectively leads students towards the (sometimes negotiated) learning goals of the class.Fr. Anthony Borrow, an american Jesuit who is an active moodler says that MOODLE works hand in hand with the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (IPP) citing that the jesuit principle of Tantum Quantum supports this.
