About the author (2012)

Rebecca Barrington has been using Moodle for over seven years whilst working at South Devon College. She provides a range of support, training and information guides for teaching staff and uses Moodle in her own teaching, including a qualification about virtual learning environments. Rebecca has a keen interest in using technologies to support learning and is continually developing new ways of using Moodle and applying these to online courses for use with students. South Devon College has a well-known reputation for its use of technology and Rebecca also travelled around the country to deliver training and advice on using Moodle to other organizations as well as at regional and national events. She is also a regular contributor to online VLE forums to share ideas and advice. Rebecca can be found online via Twitter @bbarrington I would like to thank my family and friends for checking that the information I had written made sense before I shared it with anyone else, in particular Maria, Rob, Marilyn and Dave. I would also like to thank Bayley, Emilie and Ava for allowing me to use their names (and their parents who gave their consent). I should also say hello to Madeline who would also be in the book but was only born whilst I was writing chapter 4! I would like to thank South Devon College for allowing me to write this book and, in particular, Paul Vaughan who ensured that I had the latest versions of Moodle to play with! I would also like to thank all at PacktPub, including the reviewers, for their support and advice whilst writing my first book.
