Cloud Hosting - Bitnami - 6 views

    Bitnami offers a lot of useful applications that can be run from the cloud (with a subscription) or on a VirtualBox on your computer for free. I especially like this site because it has virtualized version of Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Moodle and Canvas, and Content Management Systems (CMS) like Drupal and Joomla that you can set up to play with before deciding on which to use.

Making the Most of Moodle (Single) - 18 views

    "Learn all the components of creating your own online Moodle course! Moodle is an open source online learning management system that allows teachers to create content that can be accessed online by their students. Many educators are using online tools to enhance the learning environment in their classroom. Moodle is a great solution for getting your classes into an online learning environment that you can design and modify. "

    I think it's unfortunate that you are selling a resource for free/open source educational software. The beauty of Moodle is it's comprehensive online resources in addition to its accesibility for relative novice to advanced users. Making money off the volunteer work of others is not ethical and I fear that continued practices will cause such readily available resources to go commercial.

    I am not selling the software. I am helping K-12 teachers implement its use in the classroom. If you have done as much professional development as I have with K-12 teachers you will know that the resources available online are not adequate for your average classroom teacher. Believe me, the little bit I may make with my book will not encourage Moodle to be a commercial venture. Believe it or not there are other books written on Moodle. Do a search on Amazon.com and you'll find many more Moodle books.

"Toolbox or Trap? Course Management Systems and Pedagogy" - 0 views

    Perhaps it is because I just spent three days in a vortex of design in Moodle after having lived in the WebCT/Blackboard Vista 4 world for a while that I feel some affinity for this article's premise. Perhaps. Still, the issue of a forced pedagogy in the 'CMS/LMS' is a reality and I wonder... just how do faculty go beyond surviving and reach "thriving" in eLearning who have no web design or learning design "skill"? Well, something to consider.
