Comments from teachers enrolled in Moodle in the Classroom:

~I loved being able to learn Moodle when I had time. I completed the exercises in my own Moodle course as you suggested and when I finished the training, I had created my first Moodle course.
~The tutorials made it easy to learn what I needed to know to create a course for my science students. The students love working in Moodle.
~I don't learn to use technology tools very easily. I liked that I could watch the videos as many times as I needed to understand. I will use this course again if I need a refresher.
~This course was packed with information but I didn't feel overwhelmed like I sometimes do when I attend tech trainings. Being able to work at my own pace was great for me.

Comments from Moodle administrators enrolled in Moodle Administration for Beginners.

~When I first learned that administering Moodle was added to my job, I didn't know how I would learn all that I needed to learn. I had never even heard of Moodle. I took both of your courses. This course helped me make sense of the site admin settings and I had my Moodle ready for teachers and students to use in about 4 hours. Thanks so much.
~I was able to make the settings you reccommended in my Moodle as I worked my way through the course. This course saved me many hours of trying to figure out what I needed know.
~Before I discovered this course, I tried to set up my Moodle site using Moodle Docs.  I was lost quickly. This course is so much better than trying to figure it out on my own.
~I was glad to see that this course followed the settings in the site admin block. I could skip to a section that I had questions about easily. I have more to learn about Moodle administration but this course was a great start.
