Back to School Special

Although it’s a few weeks into school I thought I would give a few good links for the beginning of a new school year.

Here are a few “introductory” type videos and presentations

Moodle blogs

  • GlobalClassroom – This blog has many great Moodle related posts. It’s updated frequently and it’s a great Moodle (as well as educational) resource for new learning, discovering new tools and getting some great links.
  • Around the – Another awesome blog with educational and Moodle posts. This blog is also frequently updated and I find myself visiting it quite often.
  • – A blog all about Moodle. Posts consist of tips and tricks, ideas, how tos and more. Another blog to bookmark!
  • Check out all of the other equally as great Moodle blogs on my Resources page Help

  • Moodle Docs (official documentation – I use this all the time)
  • Using Moodle – This is an actual course on It consists of all forums. If you have a question, this is the place to go! This is the best source for Moodle help.

Other Moodle Resources

  • WeFollow Moodle – Looking for fellow Moodlers using Twitter? Here is a dynamic list of Moodle Twitter users. Awesome!
  • Moodle Administration book – Great book for Moodle admins. I highly recommend this book for future admins or even current ones. I was a Moodle admin for more than 1 year and I still learned a bunch.
  • Moodle Course Conversion: Beginner’s Guide – Another great book targeted towards teachers. This is an excellent book to help you convert your current course into an online Moodle course. By the end of this book you will have an engaging Moodle course. What I like about this book is that it gives real life examples and less step-by-step directions.
  • – A YouTube-like site with all Moodle video tutorials.

This is another official update to the original “Shift Happens” video.

“Did You Know 4.0″
