your language teaching. Find out how to use
the tools to create activities and courses,
and give them a try. There are lots of examples for you to look at and to help you get started. When you're ready, invite students to your courses and see how they progress. Chat with other colleagues about what

The partners are developing language training courses in the Altsolem House, to support transnational mobility actions and other initiatives. Many resources are added to the
House, e.g. additional m-learning tools, ready-to-use activity modules that can be incorporated into other courses, discussions, food for thought.
Area of application
The Atsolem House is based on the course management system Moodle. The fact that Moodle is open source software gave us the inexpensive solution we were looking for and allowed us to make adaptations to the product according to our needs. Moodle is extremely popular among teaching organisations around
the world, which gives the Altsolem House an apropriate setting.
