Linkedin for learning - ElearningWorld.org
Linkedin started life as a resume site on steroids, something that recruitment agencies and training teams could use to find potential employees. It’s very much orientated towards professional life, in a similar way to how Facebook is orientated towards personal life (well, before it started on its mission of world domination). #Linkedin

The perils of ‘display: none’ - ElearningWorld.org
Introduction Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) have an attribute called ‘display’ which can be used to determine how a given element on a web page is shown (www.w3schools.com/CSSref/pr_class_display.asp). One of the possible values is ‘none’ which means to hide the given element completely. But this is only applied at the web browser. #clientserver #computing #CSS #optimisation #Theme

Are you using the Moodle App? - ElearningWorld.org
Is the Moodle App being used by your learners?Are you encouraging your learners to use the Moodle Mobile App? It's certainly a different experience to using Moodle via a web browser on your desktop or laptop computer. Of course you can also access your Moodle site using a mobile browser on a tablet or smartphone (using Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and so on). #mobile

Moodle mourns loss of one of it's greatest supporters - ElearningWorld.org
I want to remember Tom Murdoch, who sadly passed away last week. Many of you may know Tom Murdock. Sadly, Tom passed away from heart failure on Friday 2nd November in Denver, USA. Rather poignantly, this was during the time of the US MoodleMoot. He was exactly where he loved to be. Although Tom was only 48, he had a major impact on Moodle during the last decade and a half. #TomMurdock
