This study aimed to probe on how Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (MOODLE), as an e-learning tool, improved the academic performance of the students who are enrolled in Electronic Spreadsheet with ICT (CS22) subject and how it affected the teaching performance of faculty by using it as a platform for teaching-learning material. The researchers assumed that there is a significant difference between traditional and blended MOODLE implementation as an instructional teaching-learning material. The researchers followed interpretive research design that combined elements of participatory action research, experimental design, and data mining. The student’s midterm and final grade were used as the baseline factor to gauge the effectiveness of blended MOODLE implementation. The researchers, therefore, conclude that MOODLE is beneficial to the teachers as instructional material. However, students are not receptive to using MOODLE based on the results gathered. Lastly, identify new data patterns generated during the data mining procedures in assessing the effectiveness of the students’ academic performance.
