Ferdinand Feth: Amazon Review – March 2013
From the very beginning of the book it was apparent that this book was exactly what I was looking for. We are working on setting up a Moodle server for internal as well as external training for employees, vendors and end users of our products. We also want to utilize it for document collaboration and sign off. All of this and more is directly addressed in this book. Uses for Moodle that are outside of the moire common educational deployment are addressed in a direct, clearly written and useful manner. The largest struggle I encountered was that I tried to apply the lessons in the book without knowing what version of Moodle we were running. Once I determined that we were running an older version and had it upgraded, everything applied from the book flawlessly. A must have for the Moodle novice deploying Moodle in a business environment. .
Papageno: Amazon Review – May 2012
I give this book five star because its unique view of Moodle application for non traditional e-Learning. My own challenge to create “Open Collaborative Bi-directional e-Learning environment for Working people” has several unique challenges. Section 6 of this book (Communities of Practice in Moodle) gives me many hint to my headaches. For example how to embed Wiki style co-creation place and link it to Forum. Certainly if you are looking for books to build traditional mostly uni-directional e-Learning system, you may find much better books. But as I mentioned if you are interested in somehow uncommon use of Moodle, this book is MUST have one.

Some of the case studies give some real insight into the path that these organizations have travelled. I particular like the enlightening example from the Gulf Agency Company (GAC) corporate academy starting on page 164…
Annie Foster: Amazon Review – Aug 2011
This book not only provided me with a wealth of knowledge as a beginner to Moodle, but it also made the leap into advanced business applications of Moodle (a great bonus). Instead of having to reference several different books, you can rely on “Moodle 2.0 for Business” solely…

Business Critical Thinking – July 2011
Given the business focus of the book, this format is extremely effective in allowing an organization to ask the same questions about their own business cases and requirements. This should allow them to relate the the printed case to their own business and evaluate if Moodle could be a solution to provide the same benefits for their organization.
Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org – July 2011
This book does a wonderful job of providing real life examples that illustrate the use of tough Moodle concepts (e.g. grouping, Mahara ePortfolios, repositiories) and the expertise of the authors really comes through. You get the experience of using Moodle through solving problems. This has to rank as one of the best books I’ve read on Moodle since I started reviewing them!

E-Learning Queen – May 2011
Perhaps one of the biggest potential money-savers / revenue generators could be to use Moodle for web conferencing. There are a few open source plug-ins that work with Moodle. One is BigBlueButton, which is an open source solution which has been constructed of other open-source components. Moodle 2.0 for Business includes step-by-step instructions for using it.
Moodle Blog – May 2011
I particularly liked the “E-learning framework for implementing Moodle” section where we consider ADIME (Align/Develop/Implement/Measure/Evaluate) and also the case study at the end of the chapter. The inclusion of real-life case studies is an inspired Plus to this book, I believe, setting in a genuine context the features explored in the chapters and sharing Moodle experiences from the world of business.
