Making my Moodle

Toilet roll effect & too messy

Too disjointed Evaluation The Assignment

I worked at my own pace
I now understand the 'back end' of Moodle for the future

Was a very LARGE assignment, very time consuming
Not practically useful YET

I feel I've met my objectives & assessment requirements
Happy with the outcome
