Packt is pleased to announce a new book that is aimed at helping users develop interactive courses and therapies for children with special education needs who are between the age group of 5 to 10 years. Written by Speech therapist, Silvina P. Hillar, this book is a guide to pick up necessary skills, tips, and tricks for creating practical exercises using Moodle 1.9.

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 any developer to create additional modules and features.

With this book readers will learn to create rich experiences with many fun filled, inspiring, interactive, and informative learning activities using Moodle. They will be able to use netbooks, gamepads, touch screens, microphones and webcams to teach children with special education needs who need extra motivation to advance their learning.

Readers will know how to work with drawings, music, sounds, videos, photographs and text to stimulate the attention and concentration of the children. Creating exercises for parents to interact with their children with special education needs will also be learnt from the book.

With clear step-by-step instructions, practical examples and plenty of helpful screenshots, this book is ideal for special education teachers and therapists who wish to teach online using Moodle as the background platform. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.packtpub.com/moodle-1-9-for-teaching-special-education-children-5-10/book
