      This book not only contains easy step by step instructions in how to install Moodle 2.0 and how to configure it, but also gives you explanations and guides for the many features that Moodle 2.0 offers. But that’s not all, the book goes a step further and gives the reader many examples for him to follow.

      The book is written for the beginner but has information for any user. In the first few chapters, it is mostly for administrators or course creators because it explains how to install and configure a Moodle site. After that, it explains course activities. The author explains in detail how each activity works and how to create them. The last few chapters concentrate on quizzes, adding social activities, blocks and finally a chapter on features for teachers.
