Moodle Ebook


Using Moodle - Teaching with the Popular Open Source Course Management System
by Jason Cole and Helen Foster.
(Published by O'Reilly as part of the Community Press series.)

Feel free to download this book and use it as a guide however, it is important to note that it is based on an older version of Moodle than that which we are currently using and as a result, some of the information may not be relevant.

The first edition of the book, released in July 2005, is based on Moodle 1.4. The second edition, released in November 2007, has been updated to cover all the features in Moodle 1.8, such as the new roles and permissions system, blogs, messaging and the database module.
