About This Class

This class is all about the Atto text editor and how plugins can enhance all user’s experience of using the atto text editor.  

The class begins with the font size and more font colours plugins.  Although these plugins are very simple to install, configure and use, it is well worth the effort of installing them as they are so helpful.  The font size plugin obviously can increase and decrease the font size used in atto, and the more font colours allows users to configure various font colours.  

I will follow these lessons with the font family plugin, which enables more fonts to be installed and used within the atto text editor.  Users are able to download font families and add them to the plugin - a great way of standardising all your moodle fonts.  

The final lesson in the section will install the wiris math and science editor plugin, along with the atto plugin which actually adds the functionality to Atto.  This plugin is amazing as it contains hundreds of scientific and mathematic equations and symbols that can be added directly to any moodle activity that uses Atto. 

An examples lesson, which shows real life examples of how these plugins can be used, has been added at the end of this class.

I have worked in eLearning for over 8 years, and in IT and computing for over 15 years.

I began my career at the Workers Education Association, the largest provider of Adult education in the UK, as a support analyst before moving up to a Senior Support Analyst, involved in building networks and providing helpdesk support.  I then moved on to work as a Learning Technologies officer for Coventry University London Campus, and then a Virtual Learning Environment Manager during my 4 years at the Royal Veterinary College.

Presently, I am the Electronic Resources Manager at the Institute of Dentistry at Queen Mary University in London, England.

I have managed multiple eLearning projects throughout my wide and varied career, including a college wide migration from Blackboard to Moodle, creating new undergraduate online courses, managing Virtual Learning Environments, Creating e-learning content, Moodle training, learning design including MOOCs and SPOCs and pedagogical design of online courses.

I frequently identifies and assesses relevant learning technologies to extend and support teaching and learning, and plan and manage the integration of such technologies into the curriculum and into teaching practice. 

In my spare time, I enjoy watching Football - I am a Chelsea fan, entering online competitions, playing with my cat Daisy (she makes a guest appearance in my courses!) and going out to the pub with my friends.
