Moodle is the leading open source e-learning management system. Using Moodle, teachers and professors can easily construct richly-textured web-based courses. A course can consist of a number of lessons, with each lesson including reading materials; activities such as quizzes, tests, surveys, and projects; and social elements that encourage interaction and group work between students.
Packed with clear step-by-step instructions, plenty of screenshots, and thorough explanations, this book guides you through the many features and options that you have to choose from when using Moodle 2.8. Throughout this book, you will follow an example course that will help you to explore the sort of decisions, design considerations, and thought processes that goes into developing a successful course.
This book will show you how to use every feature of Moodle to meet your course goals. Moodle is relatively easy to install and use, but the real challenge is to develop a learning process that leverages its power and maps effectively onto the content-established learning situation. This book guides you through meeting that challenge.
