Moodle Course Conversion: Beginner's Guide
With clear instructions and plenty of screenshots, this book provides all the support and guidance you will need as you begin to convert your teaching to Moodle. Step-by-step tutorials use real-world examples to show you how to convert to Moodle in the most efficient and effective ways possible. Moodle Course Conversion carefully illustrates how Moodle can be used to teach content and ideas and clearly demonstrates the advantages of doing so. This book is for teachers, tutors, and lecturers who already have a large body of teaching material and want to use Moodle to enhance their courses, rather than developing brand new ones. You won't need experience with Moodle, but will need teacher access to a ready installed Moodle site. Teachers with some experience of Moodle, who want to focus on incorporating existing course materials will also find this book very useful.

About Ian Wild
A physicist by profession, Ian's career has always focused primarily on communication and learning. Fifteen years spent in private industry designing communication systems software eventually saw Ian concentrate on the development of accessibility and learning aids for blind, partially sighted, dyslexic, and dyscalculic computer users - whilst also working part-time as a math and science tutor. Teaching only part-time meant not spending as much time with his students as he would have wanted. This and his background in learning and communication technology seeded his interest in virtual learning environments.
