Moodle Tool Guide for Teachers

A few weeks ago, a Social Media Cheat Sheet was doing the round. A nice visualization of the pro’s & cons of each social media channel, but with a business/marketing focus. I thought I should do one for social media use in education. However for most of the teachers I work with, our Moodle (EIT Online) is still their primary online teaching environment. So instead I set out to create this poster size guide for teachers, allowing them to compare the functionality and pedagogical advantages of some standard Moodle tools, adding a column to indicate how tricky the tool is to set up.

    Thanks so much for this job. I am an instructor in business courses in Brazil. The company I work plan to implement Moodle for distance business training. I wonder if in your point of view, there is a possibility that the instructor be passed back? The content of my courses can be saved? copied? Anyway, used by other instructors? Sorry for my poor english.
