Ever wondered how to find the best tool in LEO for your specific needs? The LEO Tool Selector below assists teachers to connect what they want to achieve (pedagogy) with what they want to use (technology) though a series of questions. It lists appropriate LEO activities or resources and provides links to the LEO guides about how to set the tool up and use it in your unit.

Alternatively, you can try a fully interactive version of the LEO tool selector - just follow this link.

This tool builds on the Moodle Tool Guide for Teachers developed by Joyce Seitzinger and adapted by Louise Kelly for the University of New England.

Many of the tools included in your unit may come from a unit that was delivered in a previous teaching period or included in your faculty template.
