Free Moodle book for your own learning!
Recently added to the Moodle book section is a free download to How to use Moodle 2.7 by Jaswinder Singh. The book is an excellent read for anyone learning Moodle. I would also recommend reading it even if you are familiar with Moodle, as it covers many topics you may need practice in. The book contains 19 chapters ranging from Moodle basics to more advanced administration topics. The content will apply for Moodle 2.7 and up, and for recent versions of Moodle.

My team members all must learn Moodle from the users perspective, and what educators experience. I was looking for a Moodle book that covered the basics in a newer version, and I was lucky to find one for free!
