So that is it for 2011, it has been a very interesting year.

I will be starting off 2012 with a review of the book Moodle 2.0 E-Learning Course Development by William Rice. Packt Publishing have kindly given me a copy to review. Also in the pipeline is a review of the Moodle 2 version of ELIS (http://www.remote-learner.net/elis) and another book but this time on plugins.

Thanks to all for reading and for the feedback on the articles, and I hope that you all have a great 2012.
