Pukunui offers a wide range of Learning Management System - LMS training courses across the Asia Pacific region, in addition to onsite training at your workplace or institution, and online training via BigBlueButton and Moodle.

Training courses using the Moodle™ LMS

Pukunui Course Creator - for teachers and trainers starting out on their Moodle™ journey

This two-day Moodle training is aimed at educators and business trainers aiming to learn more about the core features of Moodle and implementing them effectively for courseware design.

An initial overview of Moodle is followed by instruction on how to use the key resources and activities, enabling you to build interactive and stimulating online courseware. 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.


Each day is split into four sessions. Each session is designed to introduce new concepts and ideas to enable courseware designers to learn the basics needed to get courseware running in Moodle.

  1. Getting Started
  2. Encouraging communication
  3. Uploading files and creating resources
  4. Moodle™ 2 Repositories and multimedia
  5. Setting Assignments and managing submissions with Groups
  6. Building Quizzes and online exams
  7. Enabling collaboration through Wiki activities
  8. Eliciting student opinions via Feedback and Choice activities

Plus discussion of other Moodle™ tools as requested.

This training is geared toward educators and course creators who will be building content and facilitating student activity. It will not address administrative Moodle™ tasks such as user authentication, site settings, themes, etc.

Pukunui Master Class - for the more experienced Moodler

This two-day Moodle™ training is aimed at those educators who have previous experience using Moodle, and are looking at how Moodle can support them in extending their online learning experiences.  The Master Class is not for beginners, and it will be assumed that everyone who has registered knows the basics about Moodle.

The Master Class covers little known tips and tricks for both administrative staff and teachers to get the most out of their Moodle sites and course pages. This course is more focused on the “why” than how, discussing innovative and creative ways of using Moodle to better support your online learning. Time will be given in the course to put these new ideas into practice. Below is a summary of what you can expect to get out of this course.


  1. Getting Started
  2. New Activities
  3. Moodle Repositories
  4. Tracking what users have accessed or completed
  5. Improving Navigation
  6. Creating engaging content with conditionals
  7. Customising Roles
  8. Using some of the advanced activities

I took a Moodle Master Class at Pukunui Technology in Malaysia and it was great. The nature of training was simply exceptional as it provides thorough discussion and explanation of topics, useful and concrete hands-on exercises, and a social, interactive and collaborative e-learning experience among us, participants and our trainer. The facilitation of training was outstanding and was handled professionally.
