Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Moodle: Advanced Techniques.
- There are no real prerequisites for Moodle Advanced Techniques. At the very least, you'll need access to the Internet and a Moodle core shell where you have the role and permission level of a teacher. Since this course will cover intermediate and advanced Moodle topics, it's recommended that you review that Moodle 2.8 Essential Training first, unless you feel comfortable with your experience facilitating, teaching and learning with Moodle. This lynda.com course is designed to support two approaches to learning. Linear and non-linear. If you have specific tasks you want to achieve in Moodle, then you can search and jump right to those videos.
If you don't have a certain challenge to address, you can go to the videos in order. In either case, keep in mind that the videos cover several advanced techniques for sharing content, engaging students and assessing learning. But may not cover everything you want to know about Moodle. Before, during, and after this course the Moodle.org website is a great resource for follow-up questions and discussions with members of the community. Next, this course will talk about several integrations with third-party software, such as Big Blue Button, Skype and Facebook. This course won't go into great detail about those other platforms, except as they pertain to Moodle.
Last, if you're here, you have a spirit of adventure. Don't be afraid of breaking Moodle if you try something new.
