Collaborative Google Doc on the “Engaging Ways to Use Moodle

You can access the site below directly or twitter me @muppetmasteruk or email with suggestions.

Many thanks,



A collection of useful websites I put together in 2010 but very much still relevant today.

Have fun.

This is Cathy Moore’s  great blog on creating e-learning with compelling activities, using a quick visual design process.

Cathy explains how this can work in the real world by filling three roles:-

  • Design document
  • Outline (obviously non-linear; if someone wants a linear approach, I write a short, high-level text outline or move the nodes so they form a list on one side of the goal)
  • Content repository

and stating:-

“A tool like the action map makes everyone focus on the business reason for the project and keeps extraneous information out–it provides discipline.”

A simple but effective action plan I will definitely be using for future e-learning design.
