Happy Belated Birthday to @MoodleNews @josephthibault

I’m sad that I missed the actual date of Moodlenews.com’s birthday (November, 12th) but I wanted to post a quick note celebrating it : )Moodle News

It’s been a short 12 months since I registered Moodlenews.com (originally it was Moodlemonthly and my main intention was a monthly journal) with the goal of aggregating and sharing all the great things I was reading and learning about Moodle LMS.  Since November 12th, 2009 I’ve changed jobs, moved, traveled (to California, Key West, Texas, Pittsburgh, Maryland/DC, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York and a few other places) and have done my best to stay true to my original intent for Moodlenews.

Moodle News (originally Moodle Monthly) was created by Joseph Thibault last November. If you haven’t visited Moodlenews.com already, it is a must! There are multiple quality posts about Moodle every week day by Joseph and others. Take a look at the stats in the past year – proving it to be a great, new Moodle resource!

I have contributed a few posts and I am planning on doing more in the near future!

Cheers to Moodle News!

“Once Upon a Moodle Install” Book

Posted on April 18th, 2010 in News, Resources, Tips | 1 Comment »

As I mentioned before I wrote a series of blog posts on Moodle Monthly recently and now it’s been put together into a book! Joseph Thibault (creator of Moodle Monthly)Once Upon a Moodle Install was kind enough to put together the posts and publish “Once Upon a Moodle Install” on LuLu.com. Big thanks to him and Moodle Monthly!

This is the full account of a Moodle implementation in a large school district in the USA. The guide writes about the planning, development, roll-out, training and important tips and tricks of managing a successful learning management system integration.

“How we implemented Moodle” & Moodle Monthly

Posted on March 8th, 2010 in Information, Resources | 2 Comments »

This is sort of a two part post…

I recently joined the Moodle Monthly team and started off by telling my experience of implementing Moodle into a school district.

Stopping on that note – I’ve been meaning to write a blog post about this great new site, Moodlemonthly.com. By now, most of you already know : ) but Joseph Thibault started up the site and it has multiple daily posts with up to date information, breaking news and resources. Check it out and follow @moodlenews (Moodle Monthly Twitter handle) on Twitter.

Okay, back to my series of blog posts that will be on Moodle Monthly about my experience with implementing Moodle – I’ll be breaking down the process into segments based on topics over the next few weeks. After I’m done I will probably collect the links and write up a post on Moodlerific to reference all of the posts in one place.

Check it Out! Post and Search for jobs

Posted on September 25th, 2009 in Links, Off Topic, Resources | No Comments »

Yesterday I was introduced to a growing new resource for those looking for jobs in the education field. Joseph Thibault, from Global Classroom (which I have referenced quite frequently on this blog) let me know about one of his other projects PostLearn.com.


PostLearn.com is the educators destination for jobs. We provide the simplest and best forum for posting and searching for jobs in the field of education.

PostLearn is a simple, sleek job board focused on education. Since much of the traffic comes from educational blogs it creates a great combiniation of quality job postings and quality applicants. Instead of posting or searching for jobs on huge sites I think this is a pretty cool place to start – a place focused on education, being visited by strictly educational users!

Visit PostLearn.com today : )
