Moodle is a course management system (CMS) - a free, Open Source software package designed using sound pedagogical principles, to help educators create effective online learning communities. You can download and use it on any computer you have handy (including webhosts), yet it can scale from a single-teacher site to a University with 200,000 students.

Moodle

Moodle is a free, Open Source course management system - software designed using sound pedagogical principles to help educators create effective online learning communities. You can download and use it on any computer you have handy (including webhosts), yet it can scale from a single-teacher site to a University with 200,000 students. Some schools in France use Moodle to keep track of students' facilities and credit points.

There are moodle sites all over the world, mostly concentrated in Europe and North America. Check the site of an institution near you to get an idea about it. More information is available at the moodle project page, including documentation and support.

Monitoring pupils

Some schools use control tools like Controlaula or iTALC to supervise their students. See also the iTALC Wiki (and the documentation in bug 511387).

Restricting pupils' network access

Some schools use Squidguard or Dansguardian to restrict Internet access. FIXME: explain how to use squidguard and/or dansguardian
