Here’s a great intro guide to Moodle pulled together by SchoolAnywhere (@schoolanywhere, official Moodle partner). The ~25 page guide uses a frank and “chummy” dialog to engage teachers and put them at ease as they get a grip on what Moodle is, how they can use it, and the various features that come with a standard installation. And when it’s not informative, it’s at least good for a chuckle.
Well worth the read/download/printout for anyone running an Introduction to Moodle training or to post as a possible resource in your organizations Moodle training materials repository. While for 1.8, most (if not all) of the instructions and information is still relevant.
