About this book
The open-source software Moodle enables educational institutions and training providers to build and deliver high-quality, flexible courses. Educators, course administrators, and instructional designers will benefit from learning how to use Moodle’s capabilities and respond to increased demand for synchronous and asynchronous online courses.
This updated fifth edition combines principles of instructional design with practical instructions that align with current and evolving needs. It also provides important guidance for accreditation reviews. Designed with step-by-step explanations of essential concepts, practical examples, and useful guidance from the latest Moodle version, you'll learn how to determine the best way to set up the Moodle platform and then configure your courses to align with your overall goals and vision. You’ll also understand how to add and incorporate each type of component that you will need to deliver content, conduct assessments, and manage student records.
By the end of this book, you will be able to build and deploy your educational program, include a full array of course content, build in live web meetings such as Zoom, incorporate self-graded assessments, automatically record mastery levels, and even generate certificates.
