Moodle Teaching Techniques: Creative Ways to Use Moodle for Constructing Online Learning Solutions
By William Rice
Published on: 2007-09-20

Synopsis

This book for university teachers, professional educators, and corporate trainers is about applying teaching techniques through Moodle, the world's most popular online Learning Management System, covering creative uses of Moodle's standard features, workarounds for alternative solutions, when and how to apply different learning solutions that are based on proven, accepted instructional principles and traditional classroom activities: Distributed Practice, Self Monitoring, Pre-correction, and more.
The free, open-source Moodle LMS is designed to facilitate creating richly interactive online courses; with many screenshots this book shows how Moodle's many modules can be used to make courses unique, creating environments that motivate team work, where students get maximum benefit. The book assumes that readers have basic understanding of Moodle, but it does not need any programming knowledge; it is all about teaching and not programming and even experienced trainers will benefit from it.
