This paper focuses on an “in the trenches” perspective of a pre-service teacher and his use of Moodle to teach three subjects to year nine students at Heathfield High School, a public school in South Australia. This case study looks specifically at how Moodle can be used to support, enhance and extend student learning. The “in the trenches” perspective will show Moodle can be an effective tool in the classroom. Students enjoy this approach and are motivated to learn when the course is designed well, tailored and populated with activities and resources that create engagement and enrich the learning experience. The pre-service teacher’s observations, conversations with teachers and students and feedback responses from 3 teachers (100% response) and 69 students (83% response) are drawn upon and form the basis of this paper.
