What students are saying:

“It was a great first experience with online learning!  I would, I have, and I will, recommend the course to colleagues with whom I work, and I would consider another online course without hesitation. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!”
~ Middle School Librarian, Los Angeles, California

“I enjoyed the instructor(s) and their focus on organization and professionalism.”
~ Instructor at Waukesha County Technical College, Pewaukee, Wisconsin

“Prior to beginning the class, one of my most strongly held notions was that the interaction and level of engagement in an online course environment could not come close to the experience one has in a face to face class. While I don’t know that I am ready to fully embrace the concept that one should be able to earn a high school diploma or a Bachelor’s degree completely online,  I certainly believe there is tremendous value, rigor, and powerful sense of community that can be developed in a thoughtfully constructed course with a skilled teacher shepherding the process. ”
~ Middle School Librarian, Los Angeles, California

Moodle Rising

Moodle unleash the potential superman image

I’ve been working for several years with Moodleroom hosted Moodle course installations. I’ve noodled around with Moodle since 2002, but stayed away at first because I didn’t want to climb the learning curve of running my own server. Then I found Tom Murdock & Gina Stevens at Thinking Distance. They were educators who were committed to providing online elearning experiences with a great open source platform. With hosting off my plate I had more time to dedicate to creating and teaching classes, just the way I like it. The years have flown by and I’ve developed a number of classes and CMS systems (21cif.mrooms.net, reading1st.mrooms.org, wiredinstructor.us ) Theses experiences have given me insight and respect for Moodle. I’m so glad I got on this train

Recently the number of calls from interested educators, consulting work in education and elsewhere, and just general interest has been off the charts. Many are realizing the wisdom of NOT paying exorbitant seat costs to the big commercial outfits when an open source system can do the job…. better!

Moodle Up / Blackboard Down

moodle.org

  • Bad News for Blackboard, Good News for Moodle at e-Literate There is a Change in CMS preference at Jr. College level. This blog post provides a strong overview of a shifting market. This is a must read for anyone contemplating a CMS change. As Moodle rapidly gains market share (and Blackboard looses it, perhaps in part by their claim to own online learning technology) the time is ripe for some strategic thinking. Comparing seat costs between the major players one will quickly see that IF Moodle came with a hosting support package that rivaled the likes of Blackbaord, D2L, & eCollege the cost of Moodle (open source free code) makes it a safe choice for decision makers. For those looking for hosted support (from single teacher installations to commercial level accounts with hundreds of thousands of user look to Moodlerooms.org. Enough said.
