Moodle Teaching Techniques

Moodle Teaching Techniques is my newest book from Packt Publishing. This book is for Moodle teachers and course creators who want to use Moodle's features in more creative ways. The book is subtitled Creative Ways to Use Moodle for Constructing Online Learning Solutions.

This book focuses on best practices for constructing learning solutions, such as:
  • Applying your teaching techniques through Moodle
  • Creative uses for Moodle’s standard features
  • Workarounds, providing alternative solutions
  • Abundantly illustrated with screenshots of the solutions you’ll build
  • When and how to apply the different learning solutions
It's especially suited for university and professional teachers.
