I would like to find out from colleagues out there if there are experts who can give some assistance on the material production side. May be a user friendly manual if available could be of help. We are a distance learning institution trying to convert some of our print material into e-format using this open source CMS. The institution has decided to adopt moodle as its content management platform because it also has a facility to develop content with and even convert already existing content. We have had some assistance from one of our sister or brother institutions with downloading and installation of the system on our server environment.
Hi, I am replying to my first thread...pretty cool, but decided to reply to yours as I am an avid Moodle User. We have been using it at school for two years. It is possible to upload your existing files (if they are word, powerpoints, pdf's) etc. straight into Moodle or you can author material in Moodle itself. If you have any questions or need help then please send a message and I will try and help. Jacqui
I'm Miems Louw from Namibia. I'm replying to your thread because we in the same boat. We at NAMCOL are also involve in an OER Project with COL. We are converting the print-based material into online material using Moodle. I find it quite challenging but also interesting.
I am beginning to acquaint myself with Learning Management Systems (LMS).
So far, l am aware of Dokeos and Moodle. Have you or anyone else used both and had a feel of the difference?
I would not mind a detailed technical explanation. --Kimani Njoroge 02:38, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
