What You Need to Know About Mobile Learning with Moodle

What You Need to Know About Mobile Learning with Moodle | Moodling Around | Scoop.it
The UN recently reported that the number of people who own mobile phones outnumber the people who have access to flush toilets. We are highly dependent on our mobile devices - we rely on them to do everything, from communicate, browse the internet, play games, take pictures, etc. Mobile learning, then, has been a long time coming. We will use the example of Moodle, a learning management system (LMS) that fully supports mobile learning.
Leslie Barrett's insight:

Nice simple overview.

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos | Moodling Around | Scoop.it
So… you’ve read all the blogs and articles you can find telling you what you should do when designing Moodle courses, but you’re still not 100% happy with what you’ve developed? Well, welcome to the post that tells you what not to do. Typically, I wouldn’t use negative examples to express how to implement best practices in Moodle course design, but sometimes we all just need a clear and concise ‘what not to do’ list, don’t we? For today’s blog, I’m going to share with you my personal, top ten “Moodle course design no-no’s”!
Leslie Barrett's insight:

I love # 6 (Don’t create a “link farm”) and think it should be #1! Great list to ensure a successful first start or to clean up a cluttered course design.
