About the author
Richard Jones is a Moodler and Educator with 10 year’s experience of the software and has introduced the system to two schools already. He has a background in Computer Science, having taught the subject in High School for 20 years as well as lectured at a New Zealand university.
Richard also brings a wealth of Moodle administrative experience having used Moodle since version 1.4. The administration side of Moodle is relatively simple, the real challenge lies in getting teachers to use it and Richard has demonstrated success in this area through professional development programs which have been innovative and interesting.
The author would like to acknowledge the help and cooperation of the staff of The Southport School in making this book possible. Many of the staff have given and continue to give their time voluntarily and willingly to help implement Moodle and Mahara at the school. Their enthusiasm and energy in support of boy’s education is truly remarkable.
