Get more out of Moodle to manage curriculum and information with Packt's new book

February 2011 | Moodle, Open Source

Moodle as a Curriculum and information Management System is a new book from Packt, which helps readers easily manage and organize their administrative duties using Moodle. Written by Jason Hallowell, this practical beginner's guide will enable educators to expand the functionality of their Moodle learning management system and do much more with their Moodle site besides creating an online learning course.

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.

This book helps readers transform a Moodle site into a system that allows managing information such as monitoring attendance records, number of students enrolled for a particular course, and inter-department communication. It provides a forum for communication amongst all those involved in an institution, and even helps control course registration and enrollment. The book will show readers how to create and catergorize courses, and assign teachers to each course.

Users can create courses for all subjects using the Bulk Course Creation tool, and also enroll students in courses at the same time using a CSV file. The book teaches how to design different roles, with different access capabilities for educational administrators, and with the help of plugins allow them to access student related information and data stored in the Moodle database.

Written with step-by-step instructions, teachers interested in how Moodle can be used to streamline curriculum delivery and information flow in an institution will find this book to be an interesting and beneficial read. Prior experience with Moodle is not essential for this book. This book is out now and is available from Packt.
