Moodle Courses and Resources

 

 

I'm an admin, course designer, and teacher on Moodle-the popular open source learning management system.  I'd like to share some sample courses and resources here for you to peruse and perhaps use for yourself.

 

Here's a sample six-week blended course on digital storytelling.  This one is fully built-out and ready for a facilitator to use "as is" with just a few edits on course meeting times.  Click on the image below to see the course:

I've also started an online community for Denver Moodle users.  It is hosted on Google Plus and is still in its infancy stage.  But if you'd like to join, here is the link:
