Abstract

Moodle User Guides began as a collaborative project between Amy and Ben, two graduate students taking online classes at Western Oregon University. We both study education and technology, use Moodle as students to take fully online classes, and work to provide technical support, training, and professional development to faculty using Moodle at our home institutions. While there are many excellent Moodle resources for instructors out there, we’ve identified a few gaps that we hope to address with this project, including the need to aggregate content into one source and to address both technical training as well as "soft" pedagogy development needed to teach online effectively. This site offers a single, searchable resource for a single audience that supports the building of both technical knowledge and pedagogical knowledge.
