Moodle is an online tool that allows educators to interact with students outside the classroom and manage a course from anywhere. In Moodle Essential Training for Teachers, Chris Mattia shows how this program works for teachers on three levels: disseminating information, creating a forum where ideas are exchanged, and assessing the progress of students. Chris shows how to build course materials with Moodle's HTML editor, post assignments, and save time by using Moodle's grade book to evaluate tests automatically and organize scores. Exercise files accompany the course.
A great place to get additional information and get your questions answered about anything related to Moodle is to go directly to the source, moodle.org. When you go to moodle.org, go over to the right hand side and find the Login block and if you don't have an account already, click on the link for Create new account and create yourself a new account inside of the Moodle Community. Then you will be able to fully participate in all of the discussions forums and support pages for the Moodle Community.
On this main page, you can find updated information and news about new releases, new products and new modules within Moodle.

And you can of course, download the copies of Moodle that you can install locally on your system or your institution can download and install on their system as well. moodle.org is a great resource and I strongly encourage you to go here to learn all you can about Moodle and participate in the Moodle Community.
Another place to get additional help is inside of Moodle itself. Let's go back over to our course and at the bottom of every single page, throughout Moodle, you will find a link in the lower left that says Moodle Docs for this page. By clicking on that link, it takes you directly into the Moodle Docs page, which is an online manual that's created and managed by users all around the world.

Let's go ahead and click the Back button in our browser to return back to our course and scroll all the way back to the top. If you are looking for additional information, as how to enhance the materials that you are building inside of your course, another resource that's available to you that will greatly enhance all the materials that you are posting inside of your course is Lynda.com.
