In the following entries you'll find links to each of the Lynda.com Moodle 1.9 Essentials for Teachers training videos, along with notes from Johnathan Wright, graduate student in Curriculum Studies and Secondary Education/Educational Technology program in the School of Education. The video links will take you to the CSU's authentication portal - select Sonoma State University in the pulldown menu and click Select. This takes you to SSU Online Services. Enter your Seawolf username and password, and you will be redirected to the Lynda.com video.
Please note: these videos are for Moodle version 1.9. SSU currently uses Moodle 2. While much of the information is still useful, there are some differences. Faculty should check the Lynda.com Moodle 2 Essentials for Teachers video series.
Quicktime is required to view the videos.
If you'd like to follow the videos and build your own sample course, download these training files (ZIP). If you don't already have a blank Moodle course on SSU's Moodle server, contact the IT Web Office to request a Sandbox course. A Sandbox is an empty course you can use to explore Moodle. Students don't have access to Sandbox courses by default.
