Moodle is a free web application that educators can use to create effective online learning sites. It is designed to help educators create online courses with a focus on interaction and collaborative construction of content. Its open source license and modular design allows developers to create additional modules and features.

Moodle 2 Administration covers how to set up Moodle in any learning environment, configuration and day-to-day admin tasks, as well as advanced options for customizing and extending Moodle. The practical examples will help readers set up Moodle for large groups and small courses alike. Administrators will get an understanding of how to manage courses, cohorts, users, roles, and generate comprehensive Moodle reports and statistics

The book shows readers how to install and update Moodle on multiple platforms manually and using the CLI. Readers will be able to get Moodle hooked up to repositories, portfolios, and plagiarism detection systems. They will learn to configure Moodle web services to enable mobile learning and integration with other IT systems.

Written in a clear, straightforward way with lots of screenshots and direct instructions, the book is apt for technicians and systems administrators, as well as academic staff.
