I know that this is not going to be of much use to the majority of Moodlers but I plan to create a tutorial in Japanese. I will also be able to help Mitsu translate Tutorials into Japanese.
I will be using screen capture videos, demonstrating the stages in setting up a Moodle course and adding some forums, quizzes, and word/htlm resources in the very near future. I plan to get to work on this as soon as Moodle 1.2 comes out.
I plan to use Snagit which is a good product especially designed for making tutorials, for example to explain the use of software. Snagit has a variety of capture modes and a a fairly usable web page creation tool into which it will automatically embed the various types of screen capture (particularly screen capture images and videos).
Snagit costs $25 for an academic, one-user licence. In order to purchase the academic version you have to get in touch by email and send credit card details as an attachement (perhaps even a password protected word file for those that are wary of this method) since their online purchasing pages only allow purchase at the slightly higher non-academic price.
Who needs a blog when you have Moodle? Alas Moodle does not yet have quite the same accessability as a Blog (having the requirement to login, which I guess puts off many) so I may be adding a tips and tricsk page to my existing blog or perhaps create a moodle blog using either Movable Type or Nucleus.
But perhaps this is just a winge to encourage a more bloggish feel to moodle. You know they say that a majority of surfers do not bother to view a page if it takes more than X seconds to load. How many more surfers will not bother with a page if it includes a requirement to log in, especially in a language with with they are not familiar, and even in one which they are.
I can also use SWISH for creating FLASH presentations. I have SWISH2, which seems to work fine. I am not sure of the advantages of their new product SWISHmax.
I will continue posting to the Japanese forums here and also to the ones that have been set up in more detail by Professor Joji Kariya at my Yamaguchi University.
