Moodle: Aggregated Resources

In an effort to make finding resources easier for everyone, Jedidiah has created a blog post aggregating all the Moodle resources. You will find the post at the link below.

The post will be used to host links to all the Moodle workshops, support videos, and links. Links will be grouped by topic. If there is a Moodle support topic you would like to request, please contact Jedidiah Rex.
