About this book

Moodle is an open source virtual learning environment that is becoming increasingly popular in schools worldwide due to its ease of use and flexibility. Science is the perfect subject to benefit from the features of Moodle as students will find it easier to learn with the help of interactive content, rather than reading ancient textbooks.

Science Teaching with Moodle 2.0 will give you lots of tips and tricks for teaching science using Moodle. This book will make learning more fun for your students and explain complicated concepts with ease with the help of images, diagrams, and interactive quizzes. It will teach you how to create quizzes, start forum discussions, embed videos, and much more, all while keeping the students' performance at the front of your mind, which is easily monitored using the Gradebook function.

About the Author

  • Vincent Lee Stocker

    Compulsive technology explorer Vincent Lee Stocker is E-Learning Leader at Garden International School, Kuala Lumpur, where he leads/pioneers developments in Moodle, SIMs and other key areas. He has piloted innovative ICT use in a wide range of educational contexts including Hampshire, Kent, Bangkok, and Istanbul as well as developing a popular, internationally renowned Moodle-based website. Vincent is also a secondary school Chemistry specialist, subject leader, and pastoral manager with 15 years of teaching experience.

    His curiosity in using ICT to enhance his classroom practice started with setting up websites for his students to revise from in the early days of the Internet, and exploded with the realization of the power of tools such as Moodle. Vincent began using Moodle in 2004 with the release of version 1.3 and has gone on to train in excess of 200 teachers to use various versions of the software.

    His other interests include wakesurfing, music production, local exploration, cookery, and home-brewing … anything that gives Vincent the excuse to tinker with technology and flex his secret geek side.

    Vincent is married to Rhiannon Stocker. They recently celebrated the birth of their first child, Seren.

    Science Teaching with Moodle 2.0 is his first published work.
