It seems forever ago that we were golfing and drinking beer in the summer (see my last post). After a heavy duty September I've finally been able to start sleeping again and not waking up at all hours with a million things going on in my head.
Part of my workload in September involved creating an online guitar course. I decided I would give Moodle a try and have been very impressed. Moodle is an online course management system that is easy to use, flexible, adaptable and open source (free). Contrast to WebCT which is complicated, very inflexible and difficult to figure out, not to mention quite costly.
It's hard to compare the two; they're not really on the same level. In Moodle, in addition to all the course material, I've uploaded images, audio and video files. Uploading files is straightforward and intuitive, unlike WebCT. The grade book looks fairly easy, although I'm still learning that part.
