This paper proposes a debate about the Moodle potential in the field of collaborative learning, stressing the importance of formative processes in terms of practical use of technology and, in particular, the role of these processes at the level of convergence between Moodle platform affordances and collaborative educational practices in schools.

As a virtual learning environment, Moodle platform may, in terms of implementation, correspond to an (virtual) collaborative learning environment. The first step to implement an online collaborative learning environment is to seek to know the main potential of technology in this field. Then, a learning scenario with tools to satisfy context and participants’needs must be built. This was the path taken by a group of secondary teachers involved in a training intervention developed within a research project. The challenge was to look at the Moodle through the lens of collaboration but also look at the school and the educational practices through the lens of innovation.

The empirical component included aspects such as conceptions and representations, contexts and educational practices and provided some evidences concerning impact of the training process at the level use of tools and strategies aimed at the integration of Moodle in a collaborative way.
