Moodle Planning and Preparation

This morning a meeting took place with DV,MR and myself on preparing support resources for MMU new VLE – Moodle. A constructive meeting on what e-learning resources should be in place in the next few weeks. Lots of materials need to be created. Since Moodle is open source there’s plenty of documentation and learning material already out there for us to evaluate.

I’ve compiled a few URL that I visited that I think you may find useful as background reading to help you prepare for transition from WebCT.
