Nowadays it is not possible to think about the teaching and learning process without associating it with the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). Actually, ICTs are present in all processes that involve collection of data, processing of information and knowledge creation, being the teaching and learning one of the most typical processes having these characteristics. ICTs play an important role in education, having a special relevance in the instructional component, supported by Learning Management Systems (LMS), such as Moodle. However, these platforms have many capabilities provided that they are used in their fullness. For example, interaction, feedback, conversation and networking are some of the possible actions using learning platforms. Furthermore, they provide a lot of opportunities to explore new methods of teaching and learning. There are some studies that identify the Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) as the most used platform in higher education, as well as the most easy to use. Moodle (modular object-oriented dynamic learning environment) is a free e-learning software platform, originally developed to enable educators to create online courses to encourage interaction and collaborative construction of learning content. It provides several opportunities for the ‘teacher’ to transform from being ‘the source of knowledge’ to being a facilitator and role model in the process of acquiring knowledge and skills.
