Moodle 1.9 Teaching Techniques (Book Review)

I am excited to read and write a review of the new book on teaching with Moodle by William Rice and Susan Smith Nash. The new book is titled "Moodle 1.9 Teaching Techniques." (To have a taste of the book read the extracted chapter in the provided link). Already in the name of the book it is announced that the authors will speak about Moodle pedagogy.

I have been using Moodle for four years and taught more than twenty courses (blended and online). I developed my own approach to teaching with Moodle and to the Moodle course design.

I am curious and anxious to explore the book and compare my way of using Moodle in course design and teaching and that of the authors.
