@ONEforTraining is a professional development arm of the California Community Colleges and offers low-cost teacher training via the web. This upcoming course has been offered before by @One and covers the basics of using Moodle in the classroom. For as low as $55 dollars for the 4 week session it’s a great deal (non CA institutions are only $110 and anyone can buy in for $220). Please note that Moodlenews has no affiliation with @ONE or the California Community College system.
