Jane Hart is a social business consultant who founded the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies. One of her recent projects was to gather from 545 learning professionals around the world their shared Top 10 Tools for Learning. From that list, Jane generated the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2010.

The world of academia is abuzz this month with the recent announcement that Blackboard, the leading commercially available course management system (CMS), is acquiring competitor Angel Learning. The current issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education, Volume LV, Number 37, highlights this discussion with a front page article ‘Blackboard Buys Another Rival, to Customers’ Dismay.’ The article notes that many colleges are considering a shift to open source course management systems such as Moodle and Sakai, but the primary stumbling block is training and support for their faculty and students.
This week, lynda.com is releasing two titles in the Online Training Library® specifically for teachers and students using the Moodle open source learning management system. As the Educational Technologist at Art Center College of Design, I work very closely with the great folks at lynda.com to provide training and support to our entire campus community. Art Center has recently launched our own campus implementation of Moodle and the response from our faculty and students has been so positive that I just had to share this experience with all of you by creating these two titles at lynda.com.
If you’re making the jump to Moodle for your campus, or even if you’re already using it, my goal with Moodle Essential Training for Teachers is to quickly bring you up to speed on everything needed to build courses in Moodle. The companion training, Moodle Essential Training for Students, was designed to get all of the students at your institution a leg up in learning to efficiently use the latest version of Moodle. We’re looking forward to hearing what you think of the courses, and hope you’ll share your experience using Moodle or other open source learning management systems.
