Moodle resources - UPDATED - and Again

          First, a heartfelt thanks to the Moodle community, all the people who generously share what they’ve learned so that we can all improve learning and teaching.  Here are some of the resources the Moodle community has created:

Sample courses: 
          These are copies of courses that you can look at to see how they’re put together.

Moodle Tool Guide for Teachers:

Tutorials (mostly videos):


Books I’ve found helpful:
  • These and others available through as well as
  • Moodle 1.9 for teaching 7 – 14 year olds by Mary Cooch (step by step so great for the beginner, teacher oriented)
  • Moodle Teaching Techniques: Creative Ways to Use Moodle for Constructing Online Learning Solutions by William Rice (very thorough and helpful).
  • Using Moodle by Jason Cole and Helen Foster (more slanted towards administrators, but still useful for teachers).
Documentation, community, the mother lode:

  • A place to play with Moodle without messing up your own course.
  • I sometimes create a dummy course to make mistakes in.

          If you’ve found other useful resources, blogs, please add these in comments, below.
