I am an instructional technologist by trade. My true passion is music and journalism as evidenced by the content of this blog. I constantly seek avenues to combine these interests to become more fully realized. I term this the zen of my existence. ( i.e. cognoscenti).
Moodle, the free, open-source course management solution has revolutionized learning. Today it has 55 million global users. It has successfully disrupted the Learning Management System universe (LMS). I love the fact that it is toppling BlackBoard‘s dominance.
I wish I taught a music course and used Moodle to manage that learning experience. I am going to accomplish that by building an online music appreciation course with Moodle.
As I work my way along that path I locate subject matter authorities who guide my aspirations. One such individual in the field of software training I am following is William Rice. Bill is a leading authority in instructional design, e-Learning courseware management/development and Moodle consulting. He has written a definitive book series about Moodle for Packt Publishing.
