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.
