Print This, Share This: Moodle Tool Guide for Teachers

Joyce Seitzinger, author of the Cat's Pyjamas blog, has published a great one sheet guide for Moodle using teachers. The guide is essentially a chart of things that you can do with Moodle and how those things can help you reach your pedagogical objectives.

Here's how the guide is read, pick a task such as "create a news forum" on the side of the chart then find an objective on the top of the chart. Follow the two columns to where they meet to find a color coded explanation of why a forum might be good for dissemintating information, but not so good for assessing learning.

You can download the chart here or explore the Cat's Pyjamas here.

Applications for Education
The Moodle Tool Guide for Teachers could be a great resource to share in professional development workshops. The guide is easy to read and quickly answers a lot of questions about effective uses of the many things you can do with Moodle.
