Abstract

One of the main reasons for the great interest in learning by technology is that it can be personalized and designed to fit the individual characteristics of each student. Moodle is a popular virtual learning platform, widely-used in Bulgaria, that implements the constructive learning theory and offers a range of functionalities to develop training with a focus on the student. This article explores the use of the “Lesson” module in Moodle to create interactive learning content for self-study of healthcare students. Students' views on the quality of the proposed lessons and on the benefits of this way of providing teaching materials were studied. Some problems have been identified that caused difficulties to the students. After corrections, the lessons were evaluated by students again. The results show that future healthcare professionals demonstrate critical thinking and positive attitudes, expressed in the opinion that the lessons are interesting, entertaining and engaging. The main conclusion of the study is that the "Lesson" module is a convenient opportunity to develop an interactive, student-centred e-learning.
