Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Developed by an extremely active open source community, Moodle is a sophisticated course management system that's ideal for creating dynamic online learning communities and for supplementing face-to-face learning. Used in more than 115 countries and supporting over 60 languages, Moodle can scale from a single-teacher site to a 40,000- student university.

Teachers who use Moodle have access to an array of powerful tools such as assignments, forums, journals, quizzes, surveys, chat rooms, and workshops. Using Moodle is a comprehensive, hands-on guide that explains how the system works, with plenty of examples and best practices for its many features and plug-in modules. Authored by a member of the Moodle community, this authoritative book also exposes little-known but powerful hacks for more technically savvy users. For anyone who is using-or thinking of using-this CMS, Using Moodle is required reading.

Book News Annotation:

Taking university courses is no longer merely an experience in burning the midnight oil. Now students must also burn the midnight CRT, as more and more instructors are turning to online course management systems to share materials, hold online discussions, give quizzes and surveys, review assignments and record grades. Cole, a Moodle expert now working with the Open University in the UK, guides instructors through the process of making the best use of Moodle's substantial bag of tricks, including creating and managing content, giving lessons, using forums and chats, surveying, quizzing, setting up workshops, giving assignments and exercises, working with journals and glossaries, setting grades and creating wikis. He closes with tips on managing the class and administering Moodle itself.
