    Question Moodling !

    Well I'm currently teaching business studies subjects to foreign students (18+) but may get the chance to move back into some IT support at the college where I'm working. I've been playing around with Moodle on my own VPS just to set up some stuff for my own students to use.

    Really I'm an MS man so would prefer Sharepoint but of course that's not free.

    Looking for any hints/tips for useful plug-ins for Moodle. Any suggestions anyone ?

    Thanks UKDS

    Have a look at the conversations that went on around MoodleMoot UK, and also look out for TeachMeet Moodle too.

    Have a look at using Sharepoint Services - free download from Microsoft it's is as free as Moodle if you would prefer to use it. Obviously there is a hardware cost and your time to think about.

    Yeh, I'm familiar with SS but I might have trouble running it on my Linux VPS plus my college would probably insist on open source if they opt to pick up on my development
