Literacy or math would be fantastic, but I am open to anything that you think is worth considering
Have you checked out the Moodle Exchange or the Moodle Demo Site?
Exchange is under the My Courses tab...but there is the address http://moodle.org/course/view.php?id=15 . Not only are there courses there that have been posted to share but also glossaries, databases, SCORMS, quizzes and a forum with some websites that might be helpful.
Demo site is under the About Tab... there are some samples there and they are growing.
I have complete 1 calculus and vectors course (yes they are combined in my jurisdiction) and 1 physics course (grade 12).
They aren't completely "sanitized" as yet and are somewhat large (3 MB and 7 MB. They DO NOT include video elements, which were all embedded from YouTube) , but I could send them to you directly is you wanted to see if they match your interests.
There is a new site listed in the Exchange forum by Harry Sweet. http://www.linux-for-education.org/ It has lots of courses that have been uploaded there, including some from the Exchange and from some of the other sites that are listed in the forum.
You might want to take a look and see what you think.
An interesting site. Of particular interest would be maths stuff K - 4 with manipulative's. We seem to be sharing the senior stuff but the poor old ECL and Middle school seem to be lacking.
I agree. These lower levels aren't getting as represented. Have you seen Mary's new book Using Moodle with 7 to 14 Year Olds? I'm hoping to get some of my Elementary teacher's more involved this year. I am showing that book to some of my teachers. We have had more buy-in from Secondary than from Elementary and Middle School. Luckily I have another person working Ed Tech with me this year. We will have more time to spend at the other levels.

I also think the many elementary teachers are very modest about their work. If we identify what's there and encourage them, perhaps they will feel better about sharing. I will try also.
I have found a ELD course http://sos.tcea.org/coloodle/course/view.php?id=7 This is part of a site one the TCEA that Ken posted to the forum in the exchange. It might give you some ideas for organization. It seems to be based on English websites. It is open for guests at the present time.

Yours, in the "spirit of sharing",
Please feel free to take a look at my IGCSE ICT Online course at:
If any K-12 teachers would like to use moodle but are just getting into it, I will host your class for free and help you with materials. My Moodle site is well designed and has many custom components. Don't pay for cheap hosting offered by people who know very little about k-12 instructional design. I only ask that k-12 not discriminate and turn moodle into a political battleground. My Moodle is open and free. I will also make moodle available to k-12 teachers who are blocked. I am real tired of k-12 school screwing up good technology that helps kids. If you would like to see the site it is at http://www.virtuallanguagearts.org and you may contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org
I also have a lot of materials i.e Examview test banks, Prentice Hall digital textbooks, and lots of embedded audio books and video.
