    Abstract:
    Over the past two decades or so we have witnessed the transition of the web from novelty to ubiquity. The web has become pervasive in our work environments, a necessity we can no longer do without. The emergence of Web 2.0 technologies brought “read/write” access to the web for the masses and thus caused (r)evolutions in fields relying on economics of scarcity. When we started using Moodle in 2006, many Web 2.0 technologies were already mature, but the use of Moodle was just beginning to gain ground in the field of education, which is generally cautious when experimenting with change. The aim of this paper is to collect and assess the data and experiences that have been developed over the six years during which Moodle has been in use at our Faculty. A case study methodology was chosen for qualitative investigation into some of the technical and organizational implications of implementing Moodle from a bottom-up approach. As of this year, the Faculty's Moodle is being used by 55% of our teaching staff and 82% of our students and is managed by one administrator.
