This past Sunday, Moodle Mayhem Podcast Co-hosts Diana Benner and Miguel Guhlin had the opportunity to interview Julian “Moodleman” Ridden (pictured above). He shares a variety of engaging ideas and responses in this hour chat (view questions asked here) that is well-worth listening to.

He also addresses some of the questions that came up during the Classroom 2.0 LIVE Show that featured Moodle Mayhem co-hosts, Diana Benner and Miguel Guhlin.

Some of the key points that he makes include the following:

  1. Moodle 2.0 – Overcoming Moodle 1.9’s “dumb” approach to completion. Moodle 2.0 will have completion criteria.
    • Every resource now has completion criteria.
    • Now you can set conditionals…you can’t move onto the next step UNTIL you finish the first step/prerequisite. This is what the Lesson Module had, but now the whole course can be that way. You have to finish resource 1 before moving onto resource 2, etc. It might not be relative to blended learning but probably is for distance learning.
  2. Idea of using Moodle course based on Game Theory.
  3. When to move to Moodle 2.0.
  4. Moodle 2.0 will require teacher re-training.
  5. Finding a Moodle Host.
  6. Alfresco document management system (DMS)
  7. Moodle and Mahara ePortfolio integration
And much more. Have more specific questions for Julian? Leave them in the comments  at Moodle Mayhem.
