Moodle is commonly referred to as a Learning Management System (LMS).  It is a learning platform designed to provide educators and learners with a single robust, secure, and integrated system to create personalized learning environments.   At Cooper Union, Moodle provides a central space on the web where students can access a set of tools, resources, and courses materials anytime and anywhere. The most common tools and resources are syllabus, weekly topics, assignments, quizzes, and discussion forums.  Here is a link to Cooper Union’s Moodle.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
