Packt is pleased to announce a new book that is aimed at helping Moodlers achieve outstanding results by using the ready-to-use recipes for reading comprehension, writing and composition from the book Moodle: The English teachers Cookbook. Written in a cookbook style by Silvina P. Hillar, this book is a guide that will help users improve their skills in Moodle and enhance their way of teaching in virtual classrooms.

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.

The book starts off by teaching users to connect simple activities using Moodle that will improve student’s writing in different ways. Furthermore they will be able to match images, texts and import different pictures to their Moodle course. Embedding social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to create stories and design interactive activities will also be learnt from the book.

Educators will be taught to improve students' writing, using Venn diagrams, mind maps, and tree diagrams, changing the scenery, and discussion clocks. This will also help them develop a writing atmosphere for students to be creative while keeping in mind the Multiple Intelligence Theory.

With clear step-by-step instructions, this book is ideal for English teachers who want to discover practical, humorous, and engaging activities to insert in their Moodle course. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.packtpub.com/moodle-1-9-the-english-teachers-cookbook/book
