Fantastic, thanks for sharing! I'll be sure to write about this later tonight at Around the Corner, www.mguhlin.org

What interests me most about the book is the easy to follow guide to help me create or update my existing Moodle course. Often, whether we use Moodle or not as our LMS, we forget what best practices are for designing an online course. This book can clarify those expectations.

In particular, Chapter 5-Designing Self-paced Independent Study Courses,can be of real help to those of us who facilitate professional learning opportunities that are compliance-based (e.g. Sexual Harassment, Slips-Trips-n-Falls, Bloodborne Pathogens) in school districts.

I hope I get selected as a recipient of the book!

With appreciation for your consideration,

Wow this book really will address the need for my students to have an easy to follow printable guide to not just the how of Moodle but the how and why all in one!

I hope I get selected for this book! It may just be added to the text list for one of my classes.

As a developer, I believe this book could help me break the mold of just being a coder and instead get involved in more course design & development.

I'm interested in best practices for many of these aspects of Moodle use. At the moment, however, the assessment and grading pieces are the most relevant to me.

As a long-time Moodler, I'm always looking to break through to the next level as a user and an admin. I'm looking forward to seeing chapters 6 and 7 to hopefully better manage my classes and move them further down the road in my attempts at project-based learning.
