November 2009 | Moodle

Moodle 1.9 Math is a new book from Packt that is aimed at helping Mathematics teachers who want to use Moodle to deliver or support their teaching. This book, written by Ian Wild – also the author of the book Moodle Course Conversion: Beginner's Guide, will help readers to carefully explore the Moodle plugins that allow the handling of equations and enable other frequently used mathematical activities.

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. It helps the user to develop exciting, interactive, and engaging online mathematics courses. It’s an open source license and the modular design ensures that people can develop additional functionality.

Through this book, users will be introduced to the concepts of converting mathematics teaching to Moodle. They will also learn how to include mathematical notation, graphs, images, video, and audio in their Moodle courses. By following the practical examples in this book, users can create feature-rich quizzes that are automatically marked, set online assignments, use free tools to monitor student progress, and employ modules and plugins allowing students to explore mathematical concepts.

Teachers will learn how to integrate interactive mathematical presentations and elements, create their own SCORM activities using both free and commercial tools, and make the course more engaging for students by adding Flash games rich in animation. Configuring Moodle to display the complete set of mathematical symbols and objects can also be learnt from this book.

With loads of examples and screenshots, this book is ideal for teachers of mathematics, who want to use Moodle to deliver their teachings online. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/moodle-1-9-math/book
