I joined's "Teaching with Moodle: An introduction" MOOC

The Moodle MOOC homepage

I joined's MOOC today!

A Moodle Massive Open Online Course. Why? Well, why not! Read the overview and course content here.
The course is meant for newcomers to Moodle, but experienced Moodlers are welcome to participate!

The site has a very nice and soothing theme. The font colours are soft and easy on the eyes. I also posted an introduction about myslelf on the "Introduce Yourself" forum.

Me and many others in
the Introduce Yourself forum.

Looking forward to learning in the Moodle MOOC. Can't wait for 1st September 2013.

Where learning never stops.

Easily add a learning tool from Edu App's LTI catalog with Nadav Kavalerchik's LTI patch for Moodle 2.5

This has got to be a leading contender for the Moodle patch of the Year! It makes it so simple and easy for me to add an external learning object from's LTI catalog. Thanks to Joseph Thibault for this Moodlenews newsflash which featured this tracker by Nadav Kavalerchik.

Just how useful is this patch? Well, I found the earlier process of adding a learning object from the LTI catalog to be quite unweidly and troublesome. When I read Joseph's post, I saw the value of the patch and I told myself that I had to install the patch on my Moodle 2.5 system. At the end of this post, you will know how easy it is to add learning objects by using Nadav's patch. My assumption is that you already have the /mod/lti module installed on your Moodle 2.5 site.
