There was a good deal of interest in Moodle at the Llandrindod 'Come to the Edge' meeting. However, I know that a number of teachers and organisations feel they could do with more experience with Moodle before they deliver courses to learners using this software. Below may be an interesting opportunity to get started with Moodle.
Hope this helps

Subject: Mini Moodle Places
I am running a 3 week online "Mini Moodle" course that starts next Monday
(21st April). This is the final time this will run this academic year.
This has been targeted at organisations in the West and East Midlands
however as I have 4 places remaining on this course I am therefore opening
this up to subscribers of this Moodle-UK list. This course has run
successfully a number of times already over the last 18 months.
Please note there is a charge of £35 for all partcipants. The first 4
subscribers (from JISC RSC supported organisations) who book a place before
the end of Thursday 17th April (tomorrow) will be offered a place.
See here for booking details etc:
Feel free to contact me off-list if you need any further details.
Further Information about the course:
It will run between the 21st April and finishes on the 9th May and will act
as an introduction to Moodle; looking specifically at how Moodle can be used
to facilitate online learning.
This course provides the following opportunities:
* for delegates to gain experience of learning via a VLE (Moodle)
* to develop an understanding of the main collaboration and communication
tools in Moodle (including forums, glossaries, wikis, quizzes, chat, surveys
and the assignment tool)
* to share experiences and good practice in the use of e-learning to support
teaching & learning online
NOTE it is not designed to teach delegates how to create courses
The course will take place entirely online, with the majority of activities
being available at any time. Participants should expect to spend
approximately 1 to 2 hours a week completing the online activities.
