Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Silvina P. Hilar

Silvina P. Hillar is an Italian who has been teaching English since 1993. She has always had a great interest in teaching, writing, and composing techniques and has done a lot of research on this subject. She has been investigating and using mind mapping for more than ten years in order to embed it into teaching.

She is an English teacher, a Certified Legal Translator (English/Spanish), and has a Postgraduate degree in Education (graduated with Honors).

She has been working in several schools and institutes with native English speaking students, and as an independent consultant for many international companies working as an interpreter, translator, and VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) course designer.

She has always had a passion for technological devices concerning education. Former videos and cassettes were a must in her teaching lessons, and computer was, and still is, present. Her brother, Gastón C. Hillar, designed some programs and games for her teaching. Lately, she is teaching using Moodle and the Web 2.0. She believes that one of the most amazing challenges in education is bridging the gap between classic education and modern technologies.

She has been doing a lot of research on multimedia assets that enhance teaching and learning through VLE platforms. She tries to embed the learning of students through new resources which are appealing and innovative for them. Thus, multimedia stimulates different thinking skills, as well as multiple intelligences.

She has authored three books at Packt Publishing, which are Moodle 1.9: The English Teacher's Cookbook, Moodle 2 Multimedia Cookbook, and MindMapping with FreeMind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great cookbook from an Italian chief ! 22. November 2013
Von MICHEL DENIS - Veröffentlicht auf
It is a real pleasure to read and learn from this nice and engaging book. Exercices are explained step by step using the high level pedagogy from Silvina, and they are very easy to follow. The book contains lots of useful information that complements the standard Moodle documentation with receipts in the multimedia and interaction spaces. Examples given throughout the book are very engaging and pretty fun for the reader, which immediately suggest similar captivating features to enter in lessons for the students.

When you have learned a bit about Moodle and played with it for a few months, then it is the right time to read "Moodle 2.5 Multimedia Cookbook" : it will enable you to create outstanding learning experiences for your students, containing a lot of interactivity and the mix of very different multimedia resources, seamlessly integrated altogether in top-level courses.

On top of using plain standard modules and features of Moodle 2.5, the Cookbook enhances the usual capabilities of the platform with the use of additional plugins and technologies, like Hot Potatoes, JClic and Quandary, which most of the time are free or open source to the teacher. Here is another example: you will learn how to add voice to documents using Google Drive Voice Comments for online assignments.

During your journey across the chapters, you will deal with a Nobel Prize winner and write his biography using images and gaps, for students to guess the name of the Nobel Prize winner; Quandary will bring you Web-based Action Mazes, that can be used for many purposes, including problem-solving, diagnosis, procedural training, and survey/questionnaires; you will design storyboards and also embed stories in Moodle, reinforcing the attraction of your course to students; or embed the Fakebook of William Shakespeare if you prefer.

Working efficiently with 2D and 3D Maps is not trivial with Moodle, but in her book Silvina is showing the way to use e.g. Google Maps to locate European bridges, embedding a map of Mars and watching the universe ... or prepare weather maps before your students go on holiday ?

Drawing a "donut" interactive chart is not usual with Moodle - or is it ? Again our cook Silvina has done it for you, adding images to the chart and hyperlinks to the images. Or do you prefer showing "gauge" charts in Moodle. Simple after reading the cookbook. Recipes are not only based on the various tools that the software has but also on several ways so that the students can take advantage of them.

With the help of Silvina, record a visit to the zoo by the sea in a video and create a chat room in the Moodle course, to add some social interaction and let our students discuss the video among themselves, as well as the outing. Do you get new ideas for your own courses, now ?

You will learn how to design activities in which you use famous works of art of well known painters from different times in order to broaden the culture of our students. Then interact with a history or an art teacher, develop the understanding of a painting or picture taken at a certain time, and explore the history of the said period. A dream.

Definitely, Silvina is a master cook specialized in Moodle plates with subtle receipts - you will be charmed, no risk !
3.0 von 5 Sternen Moodle 2.5 Multimedia Cookbook by Silvina P Hillar 8. November 2013
Von Ross Mackenzie - Veröffentlicht auf
The subtitle on the cover says the book contains "75 recipes to help you integrate different multimedia resources into your Moodle courses to make them more interactive". And that is exactly what it does.

The author groups the recipes into nine broad themes. These cover user experience, maps, charts, interactive documents, audio, video, images (of various sorts) and repositories. For each theme she walks the reader through a number of external tools (mostly, but not all, freely available) that can be used to create resources that can be integrated into a standard Moodle site. Each tool is described in just about enough detail to get you started, although I would expect the learning curves to be pretty steep for some of the tools, if the reader is going to get the most out of them.

As with a more conventional cookbook, the reader is likely to skim through the book on first purchase and build up a mental picture of the range of dishes suggested and when faced with a catering challenge (or in this case a teaching one) to flick back through the book looking for the recipe that comes closest to what is actually required.

The book does cover a huge number of different tools (at least 75!), and this means that the examples must, to keep the book to a reasonably length, be pretty simplistic. If we stretch the cookbook metaphor a bit further, we've got a collection of basic recipes which the good cook (or teacher) will extend by adding their own particular specialities. That said this book does cover everything from starters through to desserts, with a few things that are only going to appeal to a limited audience.

The writing style is very chatty. I suspect that this will be fine for some readers, but might grate for others. Once I got into the style it didn't distract me from the content and the steps in any recipe (although I haven't yet tested them all) did seem to work.

My only real concern about the book is how long a shelf-life it might have. It is tied to lots of specific version numbers. The title makes it clear that it's intended to go with Moodle 2.5, but in addition a lot of the descriptions (and the many screen shots) for the various external tools are inevitably specific to the current versions at the time the author was writing. I suspect that some of these will already be out of date. The ideas behind the recipes will still hold true once the version numbers change, but the step-by-step details might change.

In all, I think this is a useful addition to the bookshelf (real or virtual) of anyone trying to go a bit beyond the tools that come with standard Moodle.

My final word of guidance to these users would be not to try and include too many of the recipes in any one course - variety may be the spice of life, but it is possible to over-spice any dish you are cooking.

Note: Packt Publishing invited me to review this title, and provided an evaluation copy.
4.0 von 5 Sternen An eLearning Multimedia Cookbook for a Small Budget 29. Januar 2014
Von Andrew Guman - Veröffentlicht auf
I have had the pleasure of reading and now reviewing, the 2nd edition of Moodle 2.5 Multimedia Cookbook by Silvina P. Hillar. This book was written with a constructivist frame of mind. The text brings you through processes, called “recipes,” and it starts with some very basic ideas from the first chapter, and progress to more in-depth practices as the book progresses. Each recipe uses the previous recipe to build new schemata of learning for the reader.
The book was written as a primer for Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) multimedia applications, but the lessons can actually be used with most industry LMS. The audience is wide; however, I found that the best audience for this particular book was the K-12 environment. It is a must have resource for a teacher or educator with a small or no budget. The ideas shared, as well as the open source technology used or explained in this book; make this text well worth the cost of owning it.
Two pieces of software that really stood out for me were the audio recording and editing tool Audacity, and the assessment suite, Hot Potatoes. These two resources are free, but are extremely powerful tools that any educator or instructional designer should have in their tool belt. I have personally used these, as well as a lot of the other technology in this book, and I can say that Silvina knows what she is talking about and she is giving you, the reader, invaluable information and tools to make you successful on a small budget!

*Note: I am a professional in the eLearning field. I am also an unpaid reviewer of this text. I was not compensated for my review and have no bias or obligation to the author or publisher.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A worthwhile addition to the teacher's shelf 16. November 2013
Von R. F. Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
The book surveys a wide range of techniques for using images, audio and video in Moodle courses. It also covers the use of cloud storage and cloud apps like Dropbox,, Google Drive and Apps, YouTube and Office 365 among others.

I was impressed by the huge range of mainly free tools and websites that were not only covered in the book but also put to good use in Moodle courses. You won’t be short of ideas for the classroom after dipping into this collection.

The target audience would seem to be mainly Middle and High School, judging from the examples but many could be adapted for both younger and older students.

There is an excellent account of file types (eg vectors and bitmaps) and optimising images for web presentation which will be very useful to those who only have a limited understanding of these issues. It is good to see open source software such as Gimp and Inkscape getting mentions if not, given the size and range of the book, thorough coverage. There is certainly enough to get those unfamiliar with these packages started.

Finally the book is, if not exactly rounded out, concluded with a brief account of enabling the most commonly encountered repositories so that files can be accessed in Moodle directly from the file picker.

All in all this is as the title says a recipe book with many useful hints, tips and suggestions for teachers to work with, apply and extend.

Teachers who intend to use the book should be familiar with navigation and basic course editing techniques in a Moodle installation.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Let's use Multimedia 14. Januar 2014
Von Víctor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
In a virtual learning environment, course contents are the most valuable asset. Getting or being able to create multimedia elements is almost absolutely necessary.

Using free, open source software and services available on the Web, this book help us to design rich activities for Moodle courses, improving the user experience for our students. Actually, these techniques could be applied to almost any course management system. Great Moodle knowledge is not necessary.

Each chapter focus on different topics and multimedia elements, offering step by step instructions in order to facilitate our work. In fact, it's possible to read directly the recipe that describe the technique or kind of activity we are interested in. Chapter 2, for example, addressing the use of 2D and 3D maps is stunning.

Furthermore, the author includes a lot of interesting ideas to include the multimedia objects into the course, so if you are thinking in creating an online course or redesigning an existing one, this book should be in your shelf.
