Very nice

Thanks Miles. Chris Collman 4/3/2006

Under documentation

There’s no documentation, training or technical support available – you’re on your own

There's excellent (and expanding)documentation online at [1] , provided by the user and developer community in more languages that you can count on 4 hands. The Open University's Jason Cole has written an excellent introduction to Moodle for teachers, available as a proper book from O'Reilly.

Most users find the Moodle interface intuitive and this helps reduce the training requirements. It's possible for institutions to run in-house training and many have successfully adopted this approach. Some Moodle Partners moodle.com also specialize in training. There are many Moodle help screens that provides robust documentation in their own right.

High quality, timely technical support is available from the user and developer community in the Using Moodle course on moodle.org. Some LAs and RBCs (Local Authorities and Regional Broadband Consortia in the UK) support Moodle in their areas. Commercial support contracts are available from authorised Moodle Partners moodle.com.--chris collman 13:36, 5 September 2006 (CDT)

Jason no longer works at the OU

He left to start his own company - so the recent change is wrong. 05:41, June 28, 2007 Tim Hunt

Chris made many changes

OK so I got obsessive. I somehow ended up on this page looking for places to put Moodle partner links, for a new page I created. Then I got sidetracked by changing all the "moodle" to "Moodle" and typical Chris left "moodle.org" alone. Then I found something else that was rough, something too preachy, no links, poor links, no facts and I figured if I was in for a penny, might as well be in for a pound. Biggrin.gif

I will not be insulted or offended if someone hits the rollback or edits anything I have done. Does not look like this page has changed much since the 11th Myth was added, so now would be a good time. --chris collman 13:43, 1 February 2009 (CST)


Spelling rant

KR, July 28, Moodlerooms Assignment 14 (The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kathleen Roberts (talkcontribs) .)

I rolled these changes back. Adding a semicolong to the end of each heading seemed entirely pointless, and would break any specific links like this that people have. Also, Moodle natively speaks Australian/British English, where we distinguish the noun licence from the verb license (http://www.askoxford.com/betterwriting/spelling/?view=uk) so please don't mess up the grammar. (And don't even think about 'correcting' the spelling of enrolment, colour, behaviour, etc.). I am sure you have useful contributions to make to Moodle Docs, but this was not one.--Tim Hunt 00:07, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Tim, I take your point about trying not to break links to section headings (though I wish people wouldn't use these links!), however I'm in agreement with Kathleen about spelling license with an 's' so that it's consistent with our License page. --Helen Foster 12:55, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Helen, the English language disagrees with you ;-) It is the same rule as advice and advise - you would not advocate using those interchangeably, would you?--Tim Hunt 15:18, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Minor Edits

I removed a couple of dead links. Brian Lockwood 04012012
