Description

The Education Labs team have today released a free add-in for Office 2003 and 2007 that allows educators to open and save Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents directly to and from Moodle websites.

What's a Moodle you ask? Moodle (or Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is a free, open source software package for producing internet-based e-learning courses and web sites.

    The Discussion

      This is actually pretty cool. However, most of my courses are now using Desire2Learn now. Most classes rely heavily on web resources, many projects like this need to take off to provide an easier and more intuitive learning experience. The web is still kind of awkward.

       

      Hopefully in the future, support for Office 2010 is supported (including the 64bit version, I have a feeling that will be forgotten).

       

      I had not known about many of the projects on http://www.educationlabs.com/pages/default.aspx  

       

      The Chemistry addon is quite useful and done well. More projects like these need to be developed and then marketed.
