Turning on Moodle

It may seem a somewhat strange thing to say and an odd way to start this post, but the purpose here, where we do a bit of learning Moodle, is not to learn Moodle. Unless you are an organization without a current learning management system (LMS), I think that the chances of you implementing it are probably pretty slim. So what then is the purpose?

As we have noted a few times in this LMS series, part of your evaluation process should be to test your work processes and course elements against those systems you have found and which have made it to the final selection. You are going to spend a great deal of time and effort evaluating the LMS you select, and I believe spending some time learning the process of evaluation itself is a worthwhile effort. Think of it like driving a car. Before you can tell if the test drive lives up to the advertising, you need to have a driver’s license.
