This competence describes the ability to effectively use digital learning environments (LMS) to provide teaching content and resources for learners. Teachers should be able to use LMS platforms and organize and present their content in them.

LMS (e.g. Moodle) offer the opportunity to make your own teaching content available online to support the learning process. These platforms make it possible to present materials in a structured manner, to assign tasks, to facilitate communication between teachers and pupils and to follow the progress of learning.

A teacher uses a Learning Management System (Moodle) to provide her students access to teaching materials, tasks and discussion forums. The students can then access these materials, submit their homework online or ask and discuss questions in the discussion forums. The teacher uses the LMS platform to track the progress of the students and also to give individual feedback.
