Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Teaching with Moodle.

Objective: To organize and share resources so teachers have a positive initial Moodle experience and to suggest good practices to aid in student learning while using Moodle. The resources presented will focus on the pedagogical implementation of Moodle in a classroom setting (whatever that classroom may look like).

The Good Teacher

The best place for a teacher contemplating using Moodle in their classroom to start learning as well as a great place for experienced Moodlers to remember why they began using it.

Teaching Do's & Teaching Don'ts

Good general/pedagogical guidelines to consider when setting up a course in Moodle and introducing students to it.
