Sorry, never mind me. I have been sitting way too many hours at the computer trying to get the rest of my course up on Moodle while the course is already in progress.
I thought I detected a Moodle philosophy of education lecture happening, but apparently not. I am a self-taught educator, since for some reason, university instructors don't have to take education classes. On top of having to master Moodle in a short amount of time, I was at first overwhelmed by the strong hints on how one should be teaching. It is exciting to see what is possible with Moodle, but I don't always agree that new is better. Education approaches can be trendy. Anyway, I thought I was hearing a "linear is boring and outdated" subcontext. Sorry for reading into what was simply an explanation of using the correct Moodle tool for the job. I do find myself feeling apologetic for not using all the cool interactive capabilities of Moodle yet. I really can't even handle making "lessons" yet, and must rely for now on simpler pages. It may turn out that "lessons" aren't appropriate for my course anyway. I don't know. I don't seem to have a book module through my university but luckily I don't have hundreds of pages. I have some long ones though!
