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.

Moodle 2.0 E-Learning Course Development starts off by giving readers an insight on what Moodle can do, how it compares to other e-learning packages, and how it can support their teaching strategies. They will then learn to install the Moodle software and discover the new features of Moodle 2.0. Readers will also discover the different kinds of courses that can be created, from team-building group exercises, to individual courses that the student can work on at home.

Using this book, educators will be able to add static learning material, interactive activities and social features to their courses so that students reach their learning potential. They will see how learners interact with one's site using site stats and adding multimedia content to the site.

This book is ideal for anyone who wants to get the best from Moodle. It is suitable for both newcomers to Moodle as well as existing Moodle users who want to get a few tips. The book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/moodle-2-0-elearning-course-development/book
