I’ve decided to quit yammering on and put my money where my mouth is.
I’m preparing an installation of Moodle to use in my classes next year. My preliminary plan is to use the Moodle install to differentiate instruction and to allow students to choose what and when they want to learn something in mathematics.
I’ve tried to use Moodle before and I just found the package to be too large…and too difficult to play with as compared to Wordpress. I was wrong. I was just lazy. Moodle is no more difficult to use than Wordpress. The only major difference is that the use of Moodle on the net isn’t as prevalent as Wordpress. Hopefully I can help to change that.
So far, I’ve got the basic skeleton of the site set up and I’m still playing around with live teleconferening via WizIQ, creating my question bank for quiizes, adding links to useful sites and software, and finally…trying to figure out how to get the kids to teach themselves real world, and somewhat odd, mathematics applications such as cryptography.
Needless to say, I’ve bitten off a lot…and I’ll be needing a lot of assistance in getting this bad boy up and running for the 2009-2010 school years. So…is anyone out there in the Edu-Tech Blogosphere using Moodle ? If so…would you care to help a brother out ?
