Jason Renshaw is a well renowned blogger and educator over at http://jasonrenshaw.typepad.com/. Most recently he published two great videos that showcase (much more effectively) how to nix the Scroll of Death by using some very simple HTML and the standard text editor of Moodle. The outcome is a really sharp-looking course that’s very easy to navigate.
Check out the blog post here (which includes two video tutorials).
The first of two videos is embedded below [direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVv4ja-gTw4]
