Review of Moodle 1.9 for Second Language Learning by Jeff Stanford, Packt Publishing, 2009

I can start with what is not superb about this book: if you don't teach language or language acquisition, this book is probably not for you, although you could likely get something out of it.
As someone who, for the past five years, has had a job that involves assisting faculty in using instructional technology, I've read a lot of books about software and how to use it. Some of those books were lifesavers, but most of them were not. I expected Stanford's book to be one of the better ones because I had met him at EDUCA in 2009, and he had great things to share in his presentation on using Moodle for second language teaching. As I began reading Moodle 1.9 for Second Language Teaching, I realized that Stanford doesn't hit his audience with all he knows during his presentations, and for good reason. It would overwhelm.
Most of the instructional technology books I read require that I make the leap from "how x works" to "how to use x in the electronic classroom." Stanford's book makes that leap for the reader. This book approaches using Moodle from the perspective of a language instructor. Stanford delineates the educational theories he uses, and he assists the reader in putting together structured, organized, effective teaching tools rooted in the communicative approach to language learning. This book is very different from, say, a book on how to use Moodle. This book only covers how to use Moodle to teach a second language. That is, there are instructions regarding setting up a Moodle site, making the site effective for teaching, using different tools in Moodle, etc., but all directions are geared toward creating a Moodle space for teaching a second language.

Format: Paperback
I am an EFL teacher, program administrator, and co-moderator of the Moodle for Language Teaching Community. Six reviewers on this site have given a highly critical but positive review of Jeff Stanford's book. In over ten chapter-by-chapter reviews, we provide a detailed analysis of each activity in this massive encyclopedia of knowledge of Moodle in foreign language teaching. A downloadable, electronic version of the book is available from the publisher, Packt Books. If you are interested to read over 15,000 total words of commentary, I refer you to the forums on moodle dot org (registration required). Look for the "course" called "Moodle for Language Teaching".

Here is an except from one of the reviews:
"Released in November 2009, Jeff Stanford has produced a herculean, 500-plus page handbook for applying the Moodle open source LMS to the specific needs of foreign language teaching. Given the pervasive use of online LMSs in teaching today, any language teacher needs to be aware of the options available for enhancing the online components of teaching and learning in their `blend' of face-to-face and web-based activities. Though anyone can suggest omissions to the book, it is actually hard to argue that any more needs to be added to this already comprehensive edition. In addition to the ten chapters provided in the print and pdf-file versions of the book, two additional chapters, Chapter 11: and Chapter 12: are available for download at the Packt website. Furthermore, Chapter 8, on listening skills, is available from the publisher for free download as a sample to encourage readers to purchase the book. The full Table of Contents is viewable as well.

As an EFL and German teacher who moonlights as a Moodle administrator, I found this book to be extremely helpful. The regular Moodle bible "Using Moodle", while good left lots of blank spaces. This book fills in the blanks and gives the teacher a great number of ideas. I can highly recommend this book and not just to language teachers.
