I knew nothing abt Moodle before being hired by a client to install and configure it. This is a good intro, but there's so much to the program it's impossible to cover it completely. The author keeps saying, "talk to your admin." I guess if you wear that hat as well, you're expected to be using additional resources. Good if you're running an existing Moodle install, but only so-so if you're starting from scratch as an admin.
