Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 30, 2013 3:13 PM

I know that many of my students in the E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate want to learn more about Moodle.  I introduce Moodle in the first course (E-Learning for Eductors) but can't really do it justice in just a few weeks.  


I'd recommend anyone interested in learning to teach on line or design online curriculum to get deeply involved with Moodle.  You can get your own Moodle set up for little more than the cost of your time.  It's a great way to start, and Moodle is a great place to teach. 


This MOOC looks very promising!

OpenBadges User Documentation - MoodleDocs

OpenBadges User Documentation - MoodleDocs | Cool science & tech things | Scoop.it

This document describes how to use openbadges feature developed by TotaraLMS.

The code is available on github at totara/openbadges. You can use it to install your own site (please don't use this code on a production site yet, this is still work in progress!), or you can try out our test site at openbadgestotara. This test site has the external backpack connections and admin access disabled, but you can play around as a teacher (to create badges) or a student (to earn them).
