New Moodle Book available

The new book published on is a good guide for newbies to Moodle 2.x.  "Overview of Moodle 2.0 Course Conversion Beginner's Guide" by Ian Wild takes the reader through setting up a course to enhancing it with multi-media.  I like how it exemplifies converting an existing course into one with blended learning. Mr Wild uses a Physics course of his own to demonstrate how this "conversion" would be done.

His examples are clear and he does a great job of sorting out and emphasizing the most important steps.  You can easily see that this is written for teachers by a teacher.  Anyone can use this book to make that first move to online learning without any prior knowledge of the Moodle platform.
Being a Packt publication, the book is also available as an eBook which makes it affordable and portable. You can find the book at

Please note that I was fortunate enough to be one of the reviewers on this book.
