When not engrossed reading a good book on my kindle, watching science fiction, singing with the Cappella Singers or looking for new apps for my Iphone or Ipad l also trawl through the Internet and post useful articles on my Blog. I welcome your thoughtful contributions or questions.  I mainly hangout on Google+ where I find a nice level of engagement and plenty of interesting posts. I also use Twitter and Facebook. For video conversations I use Skype but am actively looking for an alternative. I am still amazed at what you can do on the Internet and where it's possible I enjoy being an early adopter.

I am a Secular Humanist and passionate supporter of Social Justice issues and can be found on Google+ in heated but respectful debate on these and many other topics. When reading I enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy and History as well as good smattering of Politics. If I had to choose a hero a word that is often over used I would say Carl Sagan. So that's me if you want to know more just drop me a line via my Contact Page or through the social media sites I have mentioned.

Learnscape site being updated

I am currently updating my Learnscape Moodle site to the new version 2 so you may not be able to access until it is completed. Hopefully there will be no upgrade problems (cross fingers) I will post here when it is all up and running.


Moodle 2 Demo Site

Moodle have just announced a school demo site for Moodle 2.0  If you want to have a play with Moodle 2 but your organisation has yet to upgrade then you might find this site useful. To take a look you can visit.

They have also created a short introductory video. I have put a copy below. Let me know how you find Moodle 2.0.


To read the official Moodle news about their demo site just follow this link



Moodle RC2


Moodle 2.0 is now a step closer with the release of Moodle RC 2.0. It is believed that the final (gold) version will be released sometime before the 20th November.  Moodle 2.0 contains a lot of large new features, some completely rewritten features, and hundreds of bug fixes. If you want to find more information you can take a look at the complete release notes for 2.0.

Once the final gold version has been released and I can evaluate the feedback I will upgrade my Learnscape site.



Using Comments & Blogs

This is a very interesting and informative video on how to use Comments & Blogs in Moodle 2.0. If you use Blogs as part of your educational strategy it is worth a look.
