Moodle 1.9 Multimedia is a new book from Packt that helps Moodle users integrate multimedia elements effectively. With this book, written by Joao Pedro Soares Fernandes, readers will create instructional materials and utilize Moodle resources and cutting-edge tools to interact with their audience.
Moodle has evolved from an academic project to the world's most popular virtual learning environment. It is designed to help educators create online courses with opportunities for rich interaction. Its open source license and modular design means that people can develop additional functionality.
Moodle 1.9 Multimedia provides complete information about the integration of multimedia elements such as audio clips, links to pages off-site, YouTube videos, and animations to an e- learning course. Users will learn how to create and edit images, drawings, and screenshots, which can be blended into their e-learning courses. Basic procedures to create and convert various learning video formats or download and publish videos from online video-sharing services will be explained.
With this book, users will create multimedia elements such as interactive floor planners, online maps, and timelines using Web 2.0 tools. Multimedia elements can be integrated in quizzes and lessons to make e-learning courses more interactive. They will also learn how to use software such as HotPotatoes and JClic to assess interactive exercises that are created and blended in the Moodle course. Real-time applications such as the Online Phone service and Desktop Sharing will help students interact on a common Moodle platform.
Educators who want to design multimedia courses for their students will find this book useful. The book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/moodle-1-9-multimedia/book
