Moodle 2 for Teachers

Moodle 2 is full of many features for teachers to take advantage of, and utilize to make teaching and learning experience more gratifying. However, there is just not enough time to for teachers to learn all the features and utilize them appropriately based on the subject matter. This presentation will discuss the steps for teachers to migrate from 1.9 to 2 and migrate fast but be completely familiar with all the new features, unexpected problems, how to handle challenges in Moodle 2, and still create effective online courses. Several do’s and don’ts will be discussed to show the quality of courses and student’s feedback.
