Presentation: Setting Up Online Training with Moodle

Kevin Roberts will present how to set up an online training system using Moodle — an open source PHP application that provides pretty much everything you need for a self-serve training environment. Moodle has a huge and vibrant development community. We will also install a community-provided module that takes the grief out of scheduling one-on-one remote training sessions.

From the Moodle web site: Moodle is a course management system (CMS) — a free, Open Source software package designed using sound pedagogical principles, to help educators create effective online learning communities. You can download and use it on any computer you have handy (including webhosts), yet it can scale from a single-teacher site to a University with 200,000 students.

Mini-topic: Design Patterns: The Singleton Pattern

Ben Ramsey revives our monthly mini-topic presentation by introducing a new series on design patterns. Each month, we’ll take a look at a different design pattern, exploring why you might want to use it, and showing how to implement it in PHP.

This month, we’ll take a look at the Singleton Pattern.


Our meeting takes place at the Consulate General of Canada at 100 Colony Square in Midtown Atlanta (at the corner of Peachtree and 14th Streets). Click here for directions. You will need to see the concierge in order to gain access to the 17th floor.
