Many Moodle administrators are ‘self-taught’ … nothing wrong with that, but it’s easy miss things!
This course is aimed at giving you a solid grounding in all the major areas of running a Moodle site – from site configuration and security, through to managing users and plugins in the most efficient ways possible.
Most people who take this course say something like “I can’t believe how much I learned, and I wish I had take this course earlier!”
At $US399 (=$50 a week) it’s incredible value!
The MoodleBites for Administrators course is 8 weeks in duration, completely online and asynchronous, and is delivered in the latest stable Moodle environment (most of the content is appropriate for participants using earlier versions of Moodle).
