Anyone Can Moodle: Create a DIY LMS and Put Your Course and Digital Content Online
New Presentation and Workshop for 2020

A workshop in development, this presentation walks educators through the basics of installing, managing and adding resources to their own learning management system. As an open-source free system, Moodle is ideal, but represents just one avenue toward teachers establishing their own digital homes for their course materials. Take a look at Moodle, Canva, Schoology, Google Classroom and other tools available either free or low-cost, and accessible to anyone who needs to manage their blended or full-time online classroom.
