One thing I have noted with Moodle is that there is reasonable teacher and admin type documents & help, but they tend to be very technically orientated toward sysadmins etc. I think we have a need for student / user documentation or help but would like to gauge opionion in the community. From a conversation with Helen Foster and others who deal with users who are mid-twenties or less, there seems to be no real necessity, they just get on and find their way around. We teach adult post registration nurses and they seem to be a whole different breed and are definately not as confident or capable. (I am looking forward to the day when your capable students enrol in our courses!).
I would like to gauge your opinion -
- do you think user documentation is needed?
- If yes, why?
- What format would you think it should take (eg should we just give them a handout like the
attached(not attached as it is 1.6Mb, see www.scanar.co.uk/scanar/help/SCaNaR_2_User_Guide-2.doc) or create a full blown section on Moodle Docs or the help files)?
