By the end of the course, attendees will be familiar with navigating the Moodle™ interface and will have created a “Sandbox” course using key tools.

The Masterclass covers little known tips and tricks for both administrative staff and teachers to get the most out of their Moodle™ sites and course pages.

Susannah MulliganManager, Research and Evaluation Service - Wound Healing Institute Australia

I'd just like to say thank very much for the excellent Moodle training delivered by Lindy. I live in the South West of WA and being able to attend this course by Skype made a huge difference to me. The Moodle training was perfect and it felt tailor made just for me! Having time to go over our company's site and iron out any issues I was having was such a massive help and clarified a few of the training points. The lesson time and spacing between each session was perfect.

Our Australian and Hong Kong training facilities are fully serviced with computers and internet connection, attendees are not required to bring their own laptop. However free wireless is available if preferred. Participants for our Kuala Lumpur training will need a laptop computer to work on.

Moodle training sessions begin at 9:00am and conclude at 4:30pm, with an hour break for lunch. Light refreshments are provided at the venue.
