It's Elementary #5, Oodles of Moodle.

46:22 minutes (21.23 MB)It was another great show with James Gates of Tipline - Gates? Computer Tips taking us through Moodle, and it's features. Jim was excited and passionate about this subject as you'll be able to tell from the show audio.

Jim started with a slideshare on Moodle in the classroom:

  1. He then talked us through the slides which highlighted the features in a moodle.
  2. It's a great walled garden system that has a number of modules that you can pick and choose from.
  3. There is even a great basic wiki, and word list/glossary builder feature.
  4. There is a free moodle services available at

Our Diigo links for this show include some school sites using moodle. Many have guest sign-in that will let you look at pages without editing privileges.

Please join us on September 24th, 2007 for a discussion of social networks in Education with John Pederson.
