Setting some ground rules: Terms of Use, Call for Authors, Publications page

1269

We’re a little (but growing) news source for the Moodle community and in the past week we’ve made a few changes and cleaned up the site a little bit to better reflect our goals moving forward.  (Note that our feed recently changed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/moodlenews.)

WIRIS

Here’s a recap of changes,

New URL

The site is now located at http://MoodleNews.com.  Things weren’t exactly monthly around here…

Authors Page

We’re on the hunt for Moodle writers.  If you’re interested in the LMS, use it at your school or develop awesome little extensions you might consider putting those into post form and publishing them here.  Moodle News is a community resource.  Our audience (which is growing) is part and parcel the Moodle community.  If you’re interested, we’ll set you up with an account and show you the ropes of WordPress so you can start sharing cool Moodle info today.  More details are located at http://lmspulse.com/authors/

Terms of Use

We take writing seriously (except maybe for grammar when we’re in a real hurry, jk, but seriously).  So we drafted some terms of use that the current published users have agreed to.  Basically it the Terms of Use set the stage for accountability in our published articles and ask you not to fully reproduce our content (paraphrasing, linking to or quoting is ok) on another site without written or verbal permission.  More details at http://lmspulse.com/terms-of-use/.

Publications

We used Lulu.com to string together Mel Benson’s (@moodlerific) quality account of the Moodle integration process at her district in Minnesota.  We hope to publish more Moodle guides and books in the future, so if you’re interested let us know.  More details: http://lmspulse.com/archives/.
