History of TDC
The Digital Classroom began as a Learning Management System (LMS) for Educational Technology courses and professional development offered by Dr. Steven Smith in 1995. The primary function of TDC was to support learning and to provide resources that can be used to augment the educational experience.
Course delivery was redesigned in 2006 to take full advantage of the open source LMS program Moodle®. Moodle was selected for its extensive features and flexibility of design as well as its price; it's a free alternative to commercial software such as WebCT and Blackboard. Moodle is used by a growing number of universities, schools, as well as independent teachers for distance education or to supplement face-to-face teaching.
Today, TDC functions primarily as a a training tool and web presence for Dr. Steven Smith. Training is often personalized for an organization (private access). Courses are offered free through the classroom feature which utilizes CourseSites (by Blackboard), an online LMS.
