FoxTALE, Fox Teaching And Learning Environment is the Learning Management System (LMS) used at George Fox University by teachers and students to provide options for online classroom interaction. The actual Learning Management System is the open source Moodle program. Typical uses are for providing a Web-based presence for course schedule and syllabus, online testing, forum discussions, digital resource library and grade book.
If you would like to use FoxTALE for your class, you can begin the process by reading the Getting Started guide below or by contacting the Service Desk. We can provide technical support as well as course development assistance through our Faculty Technology Mentor Program.
If you would like to use Moodle for a public project that includes participants beyond GFU students and employees, read about Moodle Community.
