Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for a teacher who would like to know a little bit more about Moodle. The teacher does not need to know much about course management software. This book gives a great overview, with examples, while not getting caught up in the technical details.

For example the Lesson module section starts off with non-Moodle classroom story told by Jason. Then the chapter gives a short overview and talks about the different features of Lesson. There are a couple of inserts on tips and examples of how a feature could be used. Plus a few screen shots.

If you are looking for examples of GIFT or XML formats, then this is not the book for you. On the other hand, after reading the Lesson and Quiz chapters, the potential teacher will know that these are a few of the question formats that can be imported into Moodle.

Moodle documentation and on-line forums are great resources but are not designed for the non-user or really new user. This book will help a teacher ask or find more information about what they want to do in their course. It is "Moodle 101 : An Introduction to teaching with Moodle."

An excellent introduction to Moodle -- a course management system I'm teaching myself. Yes, much of the information is available online at the Moodle site, but I'm a person who would rather look through a book as opposed to clicking links online and printing what I require.

Format: Paperback
The original and the best book for teachers wanting to get a handle on how to drive Moodle. What makes this a particularly good book is that Jason and Helen don't just describe how* to do things in Moodle, but they also talk about why you might want to use the various features to enhance your teaching, or, more importantly, the students' learning.

I started out muddled over Moodle. I knew I wanted to do some of what this LMS could do, but fairly ignorant and hesitant to jump into the Moodle community to ask the most basic of questions. This book seems to do the job. Connie Neal, author of Harry Potter's Book of Virtues: Volume 1, The Virtue of Work

Thank you to the authors of Using Moodle! This comprehensive introduction to Moodle is exactly what we needed in my school district. I recommend it to anyone charged with Moodle-related staff development.

Well-done, Fellow Moodlers.

You will not find fancy photos showing you step by step, but it will show you the steps but steps and it is written in a style and language that you will be able to both understand and follow. I've just completed a course using Moddle and I truly enjoyed.
