ICE 2012 - Moodle for Beginners

Moodle in the Classroom - Tuesday 2/28 Workshop - presented by Diana Dell.  This full-day workshop provided a beginner's guide using Moodle for a classroom management system / informational portal.  Our focus was setting up classroom tools such as blogs, polls, quizzes, and a homework drop to stay connected with students beyond the time and space constraints of the classroom.  The presentation was "hands-on" and easy to follow.  It became obvious that some upfront work is needed to set up classes and the overall LMS platform.  After looking at several LMS programs - I would consider Moodle to be one of the top programs offered at any price, but being that it is "open source" - it is free.
