Install, Configure and Administer a Moodle website with New Book
Packt is pleased to announce a new book on Moodle that is a complete administrator's guide to configuring, securing and customizing Moodle. Through Moodle Administration, Alex Büchner, the co-founder and technical lead of the UK's largest Moodle partner Synergy Learning, will teach users how to install, set up, plan, optimize and maintain a Moodle system.
Moodle has evolved from an academic project to the world's most popular virtual learning environment. It is designed to help educators create online courses with opportunities for rich interaction. Its open source license and modular design means that people can develop additional functionality.
This book will make users understand the Moodle architecture and find their way around its interfaces. It will teach educators to configure courses, course categories, enrollment, and authentication mechanisms. Users will also learn to back up and restore Moodle at course, site, and system level.
Using third party tools like Google Analytics, users will be able to interpret and analyze their activity, and track statistics using Moodle's in-built monitoring facility. Users will also learn to configure Moodle for accessibility, localization, and customizing modules and grade/gradebook settings.
Technicians, systems administrators, as well as academic staff dealing with a small-scale local Moodle system or a large-scale multi-site Virtual Learning Environment will find this book useful.
The book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/moodle-administration-guide/book

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
